The Latest in Mechanical Systems for the
Latest in Medical Technology and Equipment
The Northwest Medical Center of Benton County in Bentonville, Arkansas is a new 238,000 square foot facility, which replaces the old Bates Medical Center. This is a full service facility offering the latest medical technologies and equipment.
The building houses 1,500 tons of cooling and 8 air handling units distributing more than 300,000 cubic feet per minute of air conditioning for patient comfort. A single custom unit at the penthouse level serves the patient floors with 112,000 cfm; special sound attenuating measures were employed to ensure noise would not be a concern. The 4th floor (shell space) has been “pre-roughed” to minimize disruption to the facility when build-out occurs.
Ivey Mechanical co-workers completed more than 80,000 man hours with no lost-time accidents on this project.
