Sterling — STERLING – CGH Medical Center partnered with local contractors last week to replace air-handling units.
The AHUs were installed to allow for proper ventilation in the hospital’s occupied wings. The project also included replacing the south wing’s hydronic heating water systems and shell and tube heat exchangers.
The units were airlifted via helicopter May 25 onto the hospital’s new mechanical room on the roof. The AHUs were assembled by local mechanical MEPs.
The hospital restricted all areas in the first through fourth floors during the installation. The west employee parking lot was used as a staging area and potential emergency landing zone.
