Riley Children’s Hospital
625,000 SF addition to the Riley Hospital for Children. Multiple phases to reroute campus utilities and demolish 80-year old buildings prepared the site for this addition.
The state-of-the-art Tower will have eleven levels and include radiology, NICU, PICU, isolation rooms, a food court, and shell space for operating rooms and a pharmacy. Large central-station air-handling systems with dual supply and return fans will be located in mechanical rooms on the lower level, Sixth Level, and Tenth Level. Heat recovery from district steam condensate that cannot be returned will be used to preheat domestic hot water. Parallel, central uninterruptible power supplies (UPS’s) provide reliable power to the critical patient information technology system. Valve closets are provided for each half of each level to improve maintenance accessibility. A separate four-story, 36,000-square foot Facility building will house an emergency power generation plant, a chiller plant, water softeners, a fire pump, and a loading dock. The chiller plant has three electric centrifugal chillers totaling 4000 tons, cooling towers, primary-secondary pumping, and will be operated by the district utility. A chlorine dioxide generation and injection system will provide disinfection of the domestic water supplied to the Tower.
