CM14E2-Chilled Beams Recuperate Patient Rooms: Innovative HVAC for New and Existing Facilities
Chilled beam technology yields lower first cost, lower energy costs, saves embodied energy, uses less space, eliminates recirculated air concerns, enhances occupant wellbeing and comfort, and creates quieter spaces. Learn how two landmark projects addressed regulatory and engineering hurdles, including post-occupancy data from Affinity Health's renovation and operation of 11 postpartum rooms, and 10 labor/delivery rooms in Appleton, Wisconsin. Then explore the integrated process that Arup, Kaiser Permanente corporate safety officers, and the strict California Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) used to enable the use of 641 active chilled beams in the patient rooms and associated support areas of the new 600,000 square foot greenfield Kaiser Permanente Central San Diego Hospital.
