Bringing Cutting-Edge Healthcare to San Antonio
In San Antonio, TX, the Lackland Ambulatory Care Center (LACC) Phases 2 & 3 is Bergelectric’s latest contribution to its robust portfolio of the half-dozen military healthcare facilities that total more than $23 billion in construction.
The design of the massive 300,000-sf steel-framed structure underscores the need for coordination meetings prior to installation as critical to keeping the LACC on track. In concert with other trades, Berg’s detailing professionals have counted on Building Information Modeling throughout the intricate installation process in order to eliminate conflicts in the field.
The lifeline sustaining this five-story medical facility is a Central Plant that is linked via a concrete utility tunnel to three distinct areas in the main building of the new ambulatory care center. A four-foot-high crawl space houses utilities—including mechanical, electrical and plumbing—which might otherwise typically be installed underground.
Ensuring that the facility can provide care in the event Lackland AFB loses power is the role of the comprehensive emergency systems being installed by Bergelectric, which is comprised of three 800KW generators, six automatic-transfer switches and paralleling switchgear.
