Hospitals:


Avera Marshall Regional Medical Center, Ground Floor Remodel, Marshall, MN*:
   Todd was in responsible charge of the mechanical engineering for this project.  This project was a remodel of approximately 18,000 square feet of hospital.  The area included the complete remodel of the surgery suite, endoscopy area, pre/post op suite, same-day surgery and decontamination suite.  The project was completed in 2011.

The operating rooms (4 thus) were served by a new air handling unit with VAV supply and VAV return to maintain positive space static pressure.  The rooms had a HEPA filtered laminar flow for the most delicate of surgeries.  The equipment was sized to maintain 62 degree room temperature with recommended humidity levels.  The system had integral cooling redundancy to avoid downtime for air conditioner failure.  The rest of the floor utilized existing HVAC systems and were remodeled to accommodate the revised floor plan.

The entire floors medical gas piping was revised to accommodate the remodel.  The entire plumbing system was also upgraded to accommodate the remodel.

Avera Sacred Heart Hospital, Surgery Remodel, Yankton, SD*:  Todd was in responsible charge of the mechanical engineering for the remodel of the surgery suite, associated pre/post op suite and c-section delivery room.  The area served was about 22,000 square feet of floor area.  The project is currently under construction and should be completed in 2012.

The surgery suite (6 ORs, 1 future OR, 1 Cath lab, and 1 C-section room) was served by a specialized air handling unit with desiccant dehumidification wheel.  The operating rooms were served with VAV supply and VAV return to maintain positive space static pressure.  The rooms had a HEPA filtered laminar flow for the most delicate of surgeries.  The equipment was sized to maintain 62 degree room temperature with recommended humidity levels.  The system had integral cooling redundancy to avoid downtime for air conditioner failure.  The rest of the floor utilized existing HVAC systems and were remodeled to accommodate the revised floor plan.

The entire area’s medical gas piping was revised to accommodate the remodel.  The plumbing system was also upgraded as well as some underfloor drain tile to accommodate the remodel.

Valley County Health Systems Hospital, Ord, NE*:  Todd was the main design engineer on this project.  The project consisted of a new critical access hospital with over 68,000 square feet and total construction costs of over $21 million.  The hospital included and operating suite, radiology suite, 16 bed inpatient rooms, kitchen/dining area, offices and general public areas.  Construction was completed in 2010. 

The surgery suite was served by a VAV air handling unit.  The operating rooms were served with VAV supply and VAV return to maintain positive space static pressure.  The rooms had a HEPA filtered laminar flow for the most delicate of surgeries.  The equipment was sized to maintain 62 degree room temperature with recommended humidity levels.  

The rest of the building was served by several VAV air handling units.  The building was served by a central hot water heating plant with full redundancy.  The cooling was provided by a central air cooled water chiller. 

The entire medical gas systems were new including the associated oxygen, medical vacuum, medical air and nitrogen systems.  The whole facility had plumbing systems as required.  The entire facility had a wet fire suppression system with the exception of two computer rooms that had a chemical suppression system.

Sanford Westbrook CT Scan Addition:  Todd was in responsible charge of the mechanical design of the CT Scan Addition at the Sanford Westbrook Hospital.  The HVAC system supplied has precise temperature and humidity control as required for a CT Scan room. 

Sanford Sioux Falls Pharmacy Remodel:  Todd was in responsible charge of the remodel of the pharmacy area, associated offices and pharmaceutical storage areas for the Sanford Sioux Falls Hospital.  The area encompasses approximately 5000 square feet.  The pharmacy HVAC was designed to meet the USP 797 requirements.  The space was designed to provide proper pressure control, temperature and humidity control and make-up air for the pharmaceutical lab hoods. 

Sanford Sioux Falls Acute Dialysis Remodel:  Todd was in responsible charge of the remodel of the existing Acute Dialysis and expanded it to approximately 2500 square feet.  The HVAC design included upgrading the existing system to accommodate the additional loads in the space and the additional exhaust requirements. 

The plumbing included standard plumbing systems but also included a deionized water system to accommodate the dialysis process.  The medical gases were modified to accommodate the new floor plan.
