United Methodist Riverside Hospital - Various Projects
AEC was part of a team that provided M/E/P engineering services for various renovation projects as Riverside Methodist Hospital. Projects Include:
Five South Restoration: Completed permit and construction drawings for this $950,000 design/build project. Scope included major renovations to the nurse station, general use spaces such as patient shower areas, public waiting and toilet areas. New lighting was designed for both corridors and patient rooms. EHR capabilities were designed for all patient rooms and necessary fire alarm and sprinkler upgrades were performed.
New Infusion Facility: Completed permit and construction documents for renovations to house a new 1,550 square foot space to facilitate an infusion treatment center. Alteration of the existing space required the extension of new emergency power, normal power, telecommunications, nurse call, HVAC, plumbing and medical gas.
Tomotherapy Renovations: Completed permit and construction documents for renovation of an existing treatment room to house new medical imaging equipment. New Liebert units were installed to provide dedicated, conditioned air to spaces, new telecommunications, normal and emergency power, plumbing, nurse call, public address and intercom systems were installed to support the new space.

IUPUI Glick Eye Institute Renovations
AEC provided MEPT design for the renovation of existing spaced in the Glick Eye Institute to provide additional power, heating, cooling, and ventilation. This renovation included new air devices and VAC boxes to properly condition each space and provide the correct pressurization for the functions being performed in Temp Holding Room 320C and Gas Storage Room 322. The HVAC design also involved adjustments to the adjacent spaces to ensure proper balance of the system. The new HVAC devices tied into the building͛s existing systems. New electrical devices for specialty equipment were added and connected to the existing power distribution systems. Careful field investigative work was performed to ensure the systems had adequate space and capacity to accommodate the improvements. Code research was performed to ensure the performance requirements were met and in compliance with current jurisdictions.
Wexner Medical Center Commissioning
AEC was part of a team contracted to provide mechanical and electrical commissioning services for three projects totaling over $600M construction for OSU͛s Wexner Medical Center.
The first project was a new 22- story, 1.2 million square foot hospital that included three floors of Critical Care patient beds, seven floors of Acute Care Cancer beds and one floor of Bone Marrow Transplant patient beds. The project included a new emergency power plant for emergency power to the facility, and connections to a concurrently designed and constructed chilled water plant. This project is seeking LEED Silver Certification.
The second project involved $65M in building service upgrade projects to 1.8 million square feet of an existing high-rise hospital. The project included replacing multiple dual duct air handlers with dual-path variable air volume (VAV) units, adding 480-volt electrical distribution, replacing failing sanitary sewer and condensate piping and making connections to the concurrently constructed central plant.
The final project was a new $49M central utility plant that contains 15,000 tons of central chilled water plant equipment expandable to 30,000 tons. The facility included a new emergency generator plant for emergency backup power for the facility. This facility has pumping systems located at the lowest level followed by chillers, electrical gear and topped off with cooling towers on the roof.
