Clinical Center – C-Wing HVAC Renovation and Procedure Space Addition No. 1
Project phase: Archived
The Clinical Center C-Wing was built in 1976, and the heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system was near the end of its useful life. The HVAC system also lacked redundancy for equipment failure or scheduled maintenance outages and could not ensure optimal research results. This section of the Clinical Center had been challenged in maintaining proper temperatures and needs updated central environmental monitoring and alarming to ensure rapid response to problems.
- Installed a new HVAC system designed to control and maintain the proper temperature, differential pressure, humidity and outdoor air exchange rate at the room level.
- Created new procedure space for researchers by converting office space and enclosing the adjacent overhang area on the ground level.
- Various infrastructure improvements including energy-conservation measures, deferred maintenance items, life-safety and hazardous material abatement.
- Added redundancies to ensure continuous operation during equipment failure and scheduled maintenance to ensure optimal research results. This is critical because the Clinical Center C-Wing is the primary facility for researchers who will be located in the new Bio Engineering Facility that is under construction.
The Clinical Center is located on Service Road in the South Academic District.
Start of construction: March 2014
End of construction: December 2014
