Expansion and Renovation Program Phase I
In March 1989, CMC-NorthEast [formerly NorthEast Medical Center] selected Rodgers as the master general contractor for their Phase I Capital Improvement Program. Construction projects included a new Energy Center, Ambulatory Surgery Center (45,000 SF), Mariam Cannon Hayes Family Center (86,000 SF), and site infrastructure.
The two-story Energy Center is a cast-in-place concrete structure with an EPDM roof system. The lower level contains four boilers, four chillers, and two standby 4150 KVA generators. The second level includes a control room, electrical switchgear room, and maintenance shop. The roof level supports four cooling towers. It was designed to be an unmanned energy plant and it is adjacent to an oxygen tank compound.
The utility tunnel has a 10-foot diameter and its length extends 800 feet. It carries steam, chilled water supply and return, oxygen, and power and control communications from the Energy Center to the main hospital.
