Hoag Hospital Heart Vascular Institute
This project includes Hoag's first hybrid surgery suite and the nation's first ambient experience Cath Lab. The program included the Hybrid Surgery Suite, two ambient Cath Labs, 14-bay swing Pre-Op/PACU as well as Physicians Lounges, Staff Lounge, Public spaces and Exterior Entry. The scope included all new HVAC and plumbing systems. The Hybrid OR HVAC systems included state of the art Temperature and Humidity Control systems utilizing Series Desiccant Wheel technology. Using the Series Desiccant Wheel technology, low room temperatures and humidities can be achieved while also reducing cooling energy use. Hybrid OR indoor air was also monitored for temperature, humidity, CO2, Particle Count and VOC's. Indoor air quality was utilized to monitor unoccupied air handling system setback modes to further reduce energy costs. tk1sc provided mechanical, plumbing and EMS consulting services for this project.
