West Oncology Renovation
Riverside Regional Medical Center
Project included plumbing, fire protection, HVAC and electrical
design for a renovation of a 15,000 ft2 cardiac patient wing
with general, intensive care and bariatric patient rooms.
The building renovation was completed while the building remained
occupied, requiring coordination with 2 departmental moves,
a complex phasing schedule, remediation of mold and asbestos
and installation of a completely new HVAC system.
Plumbing design provided new fixtures and potable water,
drain/waste/vent (DWV), Medical gas, dialysis and storm water
piping systems. Fire protection design included a wet pipe
sprinkler system for the west wing. HVAC design included a
complete replacement of the perimeter induction system with
ventilation controlled by exhaust (building under negative
pressure) with a new central ventilation system pre-conditioning
outside air for temperature and humidity control with MERV
7 (50% efficiency) filtration, and individual floor VAV air-handling
units with hot water re-heat. The VAV air-handling units are
provided with 99.97 % Efficient final filters for continuous
cleaning of all discharge air. DDC controls provide stand-alone
building control, with access for remote monitoring and adjustment
of setpoints. Electrical design included lighting, power (normal
and emergency), and fire alarm, with provisions for low voltage
systems (furnished and installed by separate vendors), including
data, telephone, nurse call, IT and security, and equipment
