Client: Department of Veterans Affairs
Location: Atlanta VA Medical Center, Decatur, GA
Project to relocate the 4,500-square-foot gastroenterology suite at the Atlanta VAMC into a former dental suite area, expanding the size of the new suite to more than 10,000 square feet. Design for new HVAC systems included new air handling unit, associated air terminal units, distribution ductwork, heating hot water distribution system, and controls. Plumbing modifications and expansions included connecting new systems to existing sanitary waste and vent systems, cold water supply systems, domestic hot water systems, and building roof drain systems. Expansion also included connecting existing medical gas systems to existing medical gas piping located in the renovated area. Electrical design included new power and lighting, plus modifications to the fire alarm, nurse call, card access, public announcing, cable TV, telephone, and data systems. Existing fire protection systems were modified and expanded to provide sprinklers to the renovated areas. This project was a task order under an Atlanta VAMC IDIQ contract for AE services.
