Project Description

This emergency department expansion included 42 treatment rooms, four triage rooms and three trauma rooms to accommodate patients’ needs. This project also included relocating a ground level helicopter pad to the roof of the expansion.

Capital Electric provided electrical installations for this project and subcontracted nurse call and fire alarms. An 800A 480-v normal power feed was routed through the existing hospital to feed the new expansion. Capital Electric installed an outdoor 300-kW emergency generator and four transfer switches to handle emergency requirements. Aircraft notification beacons were installed on parking lot light poles and building perimeters to meet requirements for the roof-mounted helicopter pad. Capital Electric used overhead cranes and extensive traffic redirection to complete this project.
