For this 2,800 SF addition to an existing chiller plant at Advocate South Suburban Hospital, Powers & Sons constructed housing for a new chiller with cooling tower.

A back-up generator with underground fuel storage tank was also installed.

Because the chiller and its utility tunnel directly connect to the hospital, care was taken to mitigate on-site dust and contaminants.

System shutdowns and tie-ins were carefully coordinated and scheduled with hospital staff to minimize disruptions and impacts on patient care.

To maintain a safe environment, the site was inspected daily for compliance with infection control risk assessment (ICRA) and interim life safety measures (ILSM) requirements.
