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.
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.
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.
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.
