Virginia Mason Medical Center is comprised of multiple buildings including the Benaroya Research Institute, Jones, Buck and Lindeman Pavilions. It holds a 336-bed teaching hospital. The Center recently built a new patient tower that is 342, 000-SF and 14 stories that included five below-grade floors for emergency fuel storage, a central utility plant and future operating room space. The nine-story concrete structure above-grade incorporates a new emergency department, a patient bed floor and shell space for future tenant improvements. An interstitial floor serves each tenant floor below. A sky bridge and connections to the adjacent hospital tower at each floor were included in the project. Alerton controls and/or monitors the patient rooms, central utility plant with steam and condensate, medical gas, chilled water, hot water heating and condenser water.
ATS also replaced a legacy Siemens system in the Benaroya Research Institute with Alerton and the JCI system in the existing hospital and CUP.
