In 2009, we initiated the construction of the New Utility Plant Expansion, a 1,500 SF facility located adjacent to the existing utility room on the east side of the hospital, between the hospital and the health center office building. This expansion aimed to replace the hospital’s outdated boilers with two new, more energy-efficient 300-horsepower boilers, resulting in reduced operating costs. Throughout the construction process, the hospital’s services and programs continued without any disruption.
The design of the facility incorporates a combination of glazing systems and is enhanced with an insulated metal panel skin, providing an attractive and functional appearance. Additionally, the project allowed Copley Hospital to enhance the service entry’s aesthetics and improve insulation along the south side of the health center building’s perimeter.
