Lakewood, ColoradoSt. Anthony Hospital

St. Anthony Hospital West is a new replacement hospital, located on 45 acres just west of Denver, Colorado.  This new 645,000-SF, 272-bed hospital is a state-of-the-art medical center.  Because it is the only Level I trauma center for the region, the Department of Homeland Security took an interest in this project and incorporated design features to support disaster preparedness, such as “surge” (short-term increased capacity) capability, secure air supply to the building, and improved operating capability during power outages.  In addition to these extra features, the new hospital was designed to maximize energy efficiency and obtain an Energy Star rating.

EEI Healthcare was hired to provide quality assurance services and worked with the design team in establishing the design criteria for the engineered systems, including the utility space plan.  During the design phase, we provided owner's representative and peer review services to ensure compliance with the design criteria and project budgets.  We continued forward during construction as the Commissioning Authority providing commissioning services on the following systems and equipment:

  • Chilled water system
  • Steam system
  • Heating hot water system
  • Snowmelt system
  • Fuel oil system
  • Air systems (air handling units, make-up air units, exhaust fans, terminal units)
