Norton Women and Children's Hospital

Norton HealthcareLouisville, Kentucky

Norton Women and Children’s Hospital is one of the few hospitals in the country that’s dedicated to women and children. When the hospital wished to expand the facility, CMTA performed engineering design services for the project. The $95 million East Tower expansion and renovation involved a 140,000 square foot, three-story addition and expanded concourse area. The fifth floor of this new addition became the home of the Norton Cancer Institute (NCI).

The primary air conditioning systems that CMTA designed consisted of several variable volume rooftop and indoor air handling units. The entire fifth floor NCI area is served by a separate HEPA-filtered rooftop unit, providing a clean and protected environment for patients. A new boiler plant for space heating and domestic water heating needs was installed at the penthouse level of the addition. Three 3,000 MBH condensing boilers were provided to handle the building heating requirements. The already existing hospital’s utility service is supplemented with two new 2,500 KVA service transformers that feed a double-ended switchboard.
