Sharp Grossmont Hospital Central Utility Plant Expansion & Utility Infrastructure Improvements

Healthcare | Renovation

A $46 million component of Phase II in the Master Facility Plan for the hospital campus. The new 3-story, 18,400 SF plant will include a new turbine generator, steam boiler, centrifugal chiller and air and vacuum equipment. Two other chillers and a steam boiler will be upgraded. BWE also designed utility infrastructure improvements which included adding new public water lines, sanitary sewer and storm drains, while maintaining services and emergency vehicle access to the existing campus. The new dry and wet utilities were routed to interface with the next phases of the project while avoiding the existing underground utilities. This expansion is crucial to meet the future demands of the community.
