St. Vincent’s Hospital Chiller Upgrade Project

Location:  Christus St. Vincent Hospital – Santa Fe, NM

Project Description:

The Chiller Upgrade Project at the St Vincent’s Hospital is a heavy mechanical and electrical project, but involves many other divisions for the associated elements. It involves work in two buildings on site, and interfaces with existing electrical and mechanical systems for the hospital. Being the obvious critical nature of a hospital, coordination for facility impacts as well as noise considerations was a daily effort to keep open communication with the owner representatives. This project involved the installation of two chillers, cooling towers and associated pumps and piping. The electrical elements included new emergency and normal power feeds for redundancy via a new section of switchgear, transfer switch and panelboard. Other electrical elements included lights, devices, heat trace, fire alarm and control voltage. Other divisions of work being performed on this project are demolition, concrete core-drilling, concrete placement, framing and drywall, exterior wall fabrication with stucco finish, exterior and interior painting, suspended ceiling, structural steel framing over the roof area to support the cooling towers, steel fabrication and installation of stairwell and handrails, and roofing replacement.
