Scheeser Buckley Mayfield LLC provided mechanical, electrical and civil design services for a new 300,000 square foot four-story medical building housing a Heart Center, Women’s Center, Emergency Department, connecting to the existing Aultman Hospital. The building opened in March of 2006 and has a helipad on its roof. Fire protection includes a fully sprinkled building with a fire pump. Also, the design includes a foam extinguishing system for the helipad. Central plumbing equipment and systems (gas fired water heaters, water softeners, booster pumps, sewage ejectors) which are required to serve the building and are independent of any existing plumbing equipment and systems now serving the adjacent hospital buildings. A complete system of direct digital controls was designed for all HVAC equipment. Interior lighting system for the subject buildings and spaces includes energy efficient lighting systems that utilize, in general, T8 fluorescent lamps and electronic ballasts. Building exit signage is connected to the buildings emergency power distribution system. Exterior lighting systems for all new walkway areas and parking lots for the new building is included. The existing storm sewer was determined to be undersized to handle current storm water discharge and video inspections showed that the existing pipes were no longer structurally sound. A new system had to be installed while keeping the existing system active and functioning. The penthouse mechanical room, which was constructed and erected on the roof of the building, houses a central chilled water plant with a capacity of 2000 tons. This chilled water plan was cross connected to the existing hospital chilled water plant. Both will function as one plant to optimize energy consumption. Also, the penthouse contains all air handling units, steam generating equipment, and heating system equipment. SBM also performed a commissioning of the temperature control system on the project to ensure proper operation of the chillers, boiler, and air handling systems.
