Upgrades at Loma Linda University Medical Center
Bergelectric teamed up with Layton Construction to make major seismic updates to the hospital campus steam plant. The steam plant seismic update will be one of the first projects to meet regulations for seismic compliance standards in the state of California.
Updates to the steam plant were needed in order to expand the capacity to meet the needs of a larger hospital facility. The updates were also needed in order to meet current criteria for hospitals under California Senate Bill 1953, which requires buildings constructed before 1973 to be updated to current codes.
The updates included increasing the steam plant’s capacity by removing two existing chillers and one boiler and installing three new 1,400-horsepower boilers and associated equipment. The boilers were the largest fire-tube boilers in the state of California with each boiler having the capacity to produce up to 48,300 pounds of steam per hour.
