The CMTA team developed innovative solutions securing the long-term success of the project.
A 2 MW Trigeneration System to Optimize Energy Performance
As part of a consolidation effort of two community hospitals, North Shore Medical Center in Salem, Massachusetts undertook a $137 million expansion and renovation project. The project consisted of 118,000 square feet of new construction and 123,000 square feet of renovation for an existing facility. This project provides the community with a 64,000 square foot emergency department, four floors for in-patient psychiatric beds, two levels for medical-surgical in-patient beds, and 48 private rooms.
CMTA also designed a new generator plant consisting of two, 2-megawatt generators and an expanded 2,800-ton chiller plant to serve the new building and the entire existing campus. Special energy conservation provisions, such as a new energy efficient central plant, high-performance VAV systems, DDC controls with unoccupied mode airflow setback and demand control ventilation, were incorporated into this LEED Gold facility. The local utility provided an incentive of $1,100,000 for the energy efficient design.
