Dayton Children's Hospital

Patient Tower

Project Overview

Heapy designed the Mechanical-Electrical and Technology systems for the $158 million main campus expansion at Dayton Children’s Hospital. The scope of work related to the project includes:

  • Construction of a new Central Plant and Data Center
  • Construction of a new, 8-story, 260,000 SF Inpatient Tower with adjacent Winter Garden
  • Partial demolition and renovation of existing facilities, including the Barney Building, Support Services Building, and the space adjacent to the Beerman Pavilion
  • Interior renovations of the First Level of the Beerman Pavilion
  • Project includes demolition of the existing central steam boilers for entire campus. A new hot water boiler plant is housed in the new building, and heating lines were extended throughout the hospital campus. The entire hospital steam heating system was converted to hot water to achieve improved efficiency and reduced maintenance.
  • New central steam boiler plant for entire hospital. Existing steam systems were backfed by new boiler plant.
  • Phased relocation and rerouting of utilities that were located in existing buildings and tunnels which required demolition due to construction of the new building. Utilities impacted included domestic water, fire suppression, steam, condensate return, fiber/technology, fire alarm, electrical power distribution, air handling systems, temperature controls.
  • New 1800 ton chilled water plant in building, designed for future expansion to 3600 tons and intended to supply chilled water to the entire campus in the future.
  • New emergency power generation consisting of three 1500 KVA gen-sets, replacing older emergency power systems for portions of the hospital. System designed for additional expansion in the future to eventually provide emergency power to entire facility.

The new facilities accommodate the latest critical services for delivery of comprehensive care to kids with cancer and to critically-ill newborns.
