Medical Office Building # 1
Sentara Belle Harbour

Description and Features

Project included plumbing, fire protection, HVAC and electrical design for a new medical office building on the BelleHarbour campus in Suffolk, VA. The three story facility was designed for (2) occupancy classifications: The first floor (including the Emergency Department) was designed to meet the Institutional code requirements, while the upper floors housed out-patient and support services (business occupancy).

Plumbing design provided new medical gas (oxygen, medical air & vacuum) services, de-ionized water, potable water, drain/waste/vent (DWV) and storm water systems. Fire protection design included a wet pipe sprinkler system for the facility. HVAC systems incorporated (2) packaged, rooftop variable air volume (VAV) units with direct expansion (DX) refrigerant cooling and electric heat for re-heat. A separate unit serves the Institutional area (first floor) with 95% final filters and humidification, while the upper floors are served off of one unit. The only exception to this was for the Sleep Lab on the third floor, while operates 24/7 and has its own rooftop unit with emergency power and med gas. DDC controls provide stand-alone building control, with access for remote monitoring and adjustment of setpoints. Electrical design included lighting, power (normal/critical care and equipment), and fire alarm, with provisions for low voltage systems (furnished and installed by separate vendors), including nurse call, data, telephone, security, and equipment connections.

Specifications were prepared using the Masterspex guide specifications for divisions 13, 15 and 16: All 71 drawings were prepared using AutoCADD Version 2007.
