University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center
Leach Wallace recently completed the mechanical and electrical engineering design for the new University of Maryland Capital Region Medical Center. This facility will be a replacement for the existing Prince George’s Hospital Center in Prince George’s County, Maryland. This University of Maryland Medical System project includes the construction of a new 600,000+/- square foot hospital, and a pre-manufactured central utility plant. In addition, a 60,000 square foot, three story ambulatory care center is currently in design which will sit adjacent to the hospital. The new Hospital, Emergency Department, and two-level Cancer Center housed in the Ambulatory Care Center will provide state-of-the-art medical care to Prince George’s County residents. The project is designed to achieve LEED certification.
Construction Making Good Progress at Christiana Hospital Site
The construction for the Christiana Women’s and Infants’ Addition at the Christiana Hospital site continues to progress. The footings have been poured and the beginning of foundation walls and shear walls having been installed. Visible in the photograph is a duct tunnel that runs below ground floor slab (it can be seen in front of the crane, surrounded by temporary wooden guard rails). This is a unique feature of the project as the concrete tunnel is being used as the physical return air duct (no sheet metal). Leach Wallace provided MEP engineering design services for the project which will become a 7-story, 395,000 square foot building at the Delaware facility.
