Cathedral Hill hospital is a new 13-story, 274-bed medical facility located in downtown San Francisco. The team delivering this project pushed the boundaries of “LEAN Construction” maximizing the benefits of collaboration including contractual “Joining Agreements”, Big Room Meetings, and multi-disciplinary cross-functional teams to deliver this highly complex project on time and on budget. HVAC requirements of the project include control and monitoring of infectious isolation areas, maternity, neonatal intensive care, emergency department, and full imaging services with CT scanner, nuclear medicine and MRI.
Syserco was selected as the preferred controls contractor in 2010 and completed preconstruction in 2014. With over 10 years of healthcare construction experience and developed best practices, the Syserco team continues to provide value in constructability, building automation integration, and commissioning agent support.
In 2015, Syserco began the construction phase of the highly complex Alerton Energy Management and Control System at Cathedral Hill Hospital. The system consists of over 5,000 hardwired points that provide control and monitoring of over 1200 supply boxes, 450 exhaust boxes, 15 Critical Operating Rooms, 25 isolation rooms and the associated Air Handlers, Central Plants and all other major mechanical, plumbing and electrical systems within the facility. Further, Syserco leveraged our experience with open systems to integrate over 10,000 points from multiple sub-systems including medical gas, generators, switchgear, power distribution, fuel oil systems, lighting and fire alarm. This integrated approach provides the building operating staff single seat operation for every major hospital system.
Syserco leveraged the Design/Build and LEAN Delivery model, to perform extensive preconstruction systems coordination and BIM Modeling allowing for the concept of single seat operation to become a reality while still reducing overall construction costs and timeframes.
