Chandler Regional Medical Center

Chandler Regional Medical Center, Chandler AZ

Project Description:

This five-story inpatient tower is an addition to the existing Chandler Regional Medical Center that will help meet the increasing healthcare needs of Chandler and its surrounding communities. The tower will add 96 beds, a medical-surgical unit, 32 intensive care rooms, six operating suites, and a chapel, as well as expand the capacity of emergency services.

Scope of Work:

TMCx provided design review services during the design phase and commissioning of the mechanical, plumbing, emergency power and access control systems during the construction phase.

Challenges and Successes

  • Issue: As a result of our design review, TMCx identified the lack of minimum air requirements in the design documents. The amount of outside air designed to bring into the building exceeded the size of the outside air ductwork and openings.

           Resolution: TMCx worked with the engineer or record to provide outside air requirements. This avoided potential pressure issues as well as patient and occupancy comfort and health.

  •  Issue: A sequence of control was not included in the design documents. The controls contractor was hired to provide a optimization program for the central plant separate from the original contract.

          Resolution: As a result of the functional testing of the central plant, TMCx verified the actual efficiency of the plant was not meeting design criteria. As a result, changes were recommended and implemented to the sequence of operation to achieve design efficiencies.
