Huitt-Zollars provided design services for the 606,340-SF expansion and 486,290-SF renovation. Results of a Huitt-Zollars study were incorporated into the design of a new Central Energy Plant. The project incorporated a campus wide Energy Management System. The electrical design included 480v and 15 KV distribution systems. A 600 KW emergency generator unit powers essential plant loads during commercial utility outages. A base loop complex wide fire alarm system replaced the antiquated system. The design incorporated the VA Interstitial Space Concept throughout the 694,000 SF clinical addition which provides organized and accessible channels for HVAC, plumbing, electrical, communications, and gas systems.
