As in most projects involving ductwork, as the mechanical contractor EMC took the lead on this 200,000 square foot project, which was completed in 2011. The project was designed to meet LEED certification; green features of the facility include energy performance optimization, thermal comfort controls and the use of recycled and locally manufactured materials. The project consisted of an addition with dedicated chiller and boiler plant and the adjacent hospital remained 100% operational throughout the duration of the project. The 6-story, $55 million medical office building, which houses 18 different clinical departments, is located south of the hospital in Kansas City, Kansas.
