FPA has provided a wide range of engineering services for Monmouth Medical Center, a 527-bed community teaching hospital located in Long Branch, New Jersey, that is an affiliate of the Saint Barnabas Health Care System — the state’s largest healthcare system. Services have included a condition survey of the existing buildings.
One project for the E. Murray Todd Building involved the design of a replacement domestic hot water system which, in addition to resolving the hot water problem using recirculating instantaneous heaters, freed up 75% of needed equipment room floor space by mounting the smaller heaters high up. A detailed phasing schedule was developed to minimize interruption of hot water service.
For the Third Floor Stanley Wing, FPA designed the exhaust system and performed related electrical work required for 100% ventilation of an isolation room for bronchial examination of patients. The exhaust system included high efficiency filtration and ultraviolet light fixtures within the duct system.
