Heapy designed the Mechanical, Electrical and Technology systems for the new 5-story, Benjamin and Marian Schuster Heart Hospital. The 120,000 SF facility serves as a premier cardiac care facility as well as a research and education facility and includes cardiac CT, cardiac MRI and cardiac PET scan.
The hospital will feature state of the art diagnostic and interventional equipment, including three new cath labs. Another lab will be constructed in the future, as a hybrid cath lab that could be used for surgery should the need arise during a cath procedure. Two electro-physiology labs were also installed. The facility also includes places for angiograms and angioplasty. The equipment used includes a sophisticated fluoroscopic imaging system.
Heapy provided Structured Cabling (Voice/Data/CATV) Infrastructure Design as well as the Nurse Call Design for the New Heart Hospital. A Telecommunications Grounding/Bonding Design was also provided in accordance with TIA/EIA 607A.
To support the addition, the existing central utility plant was modified to expand the chilled water plant, high temperature hot water system, and emergency generation system. All of the modifications were made while keeping the existing systems active.
The project was completed in 2010 and received an ABC 2010 Excellence in Construction Award of Merit.
