The United and Children’s Hospital expansion project encompasses a number of patient care and treatment areas within a shared building. The new 6-story tower included a new emergency department for United and new surgery, central sterilization and critical patient care areas for Children’s.

The expansion was built over a major electrical room and connected to existing buildings, which posed several challenges. One of them was to prevent unwanted pressure differences between the old and the new areas. This required a thorough knowledge of how the existing campus air handling systems worked and how to adjust them with new control strategies. The structure and the MEP infrastructure were also planned for future vertical expansion, as this was the last available green space on the campus. This meant that the systems had to be able to handle both the current and the future load efficiently.
The project team worked closely with both hospital entities to meet their different needs, especially for the areas designed for children.
