UMMS, Gudelsky Building
Henry Adams provided the design for the MEP systems of the new 9-story hospital building. It involved a unique HVAC system, using thermal storage and low temperature air. The design included plumbing, fire protection, lighting, power and communication systems, as well as integrating utilities from other buildings that are connected to the new facility.
Utility systems designed in support of the building and Phase II program involved design of an oxygen tank farm, a 3,750 kW diesel generation plant, a 4,300-ton chilled water plant, replacement of a substation and feeder system, and integration of the domestic water, steam, and gas systems.
The 297,000 SF building includes design for ambulatory surgery, teaching space, nuclear medicine, and surgical intensive care units.
The design won an award from the American Consulting Engineers Council.
