Tarlton replaced 5 existing air handlers with 3 new units, affecting 129 patient rooms and the waiting rooms, break rooms and therapy and core rooms on 9 floors of the hospital. Return-air ductwork added on 7 floors brought the HVAC system up to code and increased efficiency by recycling cool air rather than releasing it from the building.
The team cleaned up continually while working on several floors, maintaining access to operational patient areas through project work areas, and protecting existing finishes and fittings. This high-visibility project required careful coordination with hospital personnel and effective management of multiple subcontractors. The project team achieved a clean safety record and minimal disturbances to hospital operations.
