Kingston General Hospital

In 2002 three of the four chillers serving Kingston General Hospital (KGH) were 30 to 40 years old with efficiencies of only 1.0 kWh per ton of cooling capacity. Even under the best conditions, the chiller plant was unable to meet peak cooling capacity — on several occasions during 2002 scheduled surgeries were cancelled due to poor temperature control. In addition, hospital expansions were planned that would put even more strain on the aging chiller plant.

Tallahassee Single Day Surgery

As its name implies, Tallahassee Single-Day Surgery Center (TSDSC) doesn’t usually let problems linger. But the legendary heat and humidity of Tallahassee, Florida present challenges that are not easily conquered. Extreme summer heat and humidity make meeting strict surgical ventilation, humidity and temperature guidelines difficult—not to mention very expensive. With those extreme conditions, it’s not surprising that the performance from the 14-year-old rooftop unit provided reliably poor temperature and humidity control. It was time for an upgrade.

St.Margaret's Daughters' Home

St. Margaret’s Daughters’ Home, located in New Orleans’ Ninth Ward, was virtually destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. While all residents were safely evacuated before the storm hit, the building was declared unsalvageable after it was flooded with up to six feet of standing water for two weeks. St. Margaret’s officials immediately began searching to find a new home for residents as quickly as possible. They found a new home in the former Bywater Hospital on St. Claude Avenue. Although suitable, the building needed total renovation of the HVAC systems that would require many months of work.
