This Steam Plant Expansion Project was a design-build project that consisted of replacing the existing electric steam generators for the sterilizers and humidifiers with a new centralized steam plant at Mount Carmel’s New Albany Surgical Center.
- Restrictive 10-month schedule
- Space constraints
- Limited downtime
- Safety – Site-Specific & COVID Restrictions
Utilize our engineering, preconstruction, and construction experts, our team designed an innovative solution that included prefabricating a 60,000 lb, 50’ long x 15’ wide steam plant that would sit on top of the roof and house all of the necessary steam equipment.
To account for the proposed safety concerns, space constraints, and restrictive schedule, our team prefabricated the entire central steam plant offsite in our fabrication shop, while our field team prepped the site for installation, saving months in the project schedule.
While providing an out-of-the-box solution, our team was able to successfully install the new centralized steam plant and all necessary steam piping while meeting the proposed schedule, and ensuring minimal disruptions to the surgical center’s daily operations, patients, and staff.
