Hospital Central Utility Plant

Location: Dallas

Client: Parkland Health & Hospital System

For its new hospital in Dallas, Parkland Health & Hospital System selected Burns & McDonnell to perform an energy analysis and conceptual and detailed design for its central utility plant (CUP). The plant features 16,500 tons of cooling, 1,000 tons of heat pump chilling, 230,000 pounds per hour of steam and 20 MW of emergency power to support 2.5 million square feet of hospital and medical office buildings. The CUP's energy efficiency will help Parkland obtain LEED Silver certification for the $1.2 billion new Parkland campus and provide it with emergency electricity and thermal utilities for at least 36 hours in the event of a utility grid outage.
