MECHANICAL CONSTRUCTION SCOPE OF WORK
The mechanical construction project included construction of a new ten-story medical office building comprised of 115,000 square-feet. Although referred to as a "medical office building," the construction project was actually a small hospital facility with six operating rooms, labs, pharmacy, outpatient services, requisite provider/nurse areas and administrative offices. The construction effort included an addition to the Franklin Complex Power Plant that required relocating existing industrial HVAC chillers and installation of a 271-ton capacity chiller. This increased the capacity of both the chiller and hot water systems by 500 tons.
KAISER PERMANENTE & FRANKLIN WEST MEDICAL BUILDING BACKGROUND
Kaiser Permanente began at the height of the Great Depression with a single inventive young surgeon and a 12-bed hospital in the middle of the Mojave Desert. It later grew to care for thousands of workers who were building the Los Angeles Aqueduct. Working with the insurance companies, Sidney R Garfield, MD built the start of Kaiser Permanente.

With growth in mind, this medical office building was built to enable minor surgery in the office, thus avoiding hospitalization.
