Saving Energy and Improving the Healthcare Environment: A Case Study
A collaborative effort between JB&B Engineers and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center answers all the questions on adiabatic humidification application and maximizing the newest ASHRAE 170 Standards.
Adiabatic humidification systems have opened up a whole new way of saving energy, and making buildings more efficient and comfortable. Moving to new technologies can give many of us pause and fear from the unknown. Having key partners in the process can really help move the project along successfully. The New York City based Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) introduced adiabatic humidification into their new Clinical Laboratory Medicine building in 2017, and again in its newest Outpatient Ambulatory Care Center just finishing construction.
MSKCC and JB&B will discuss the design approach, challenges and benefits to this technology. Overcoming the challenges together opened up the doors for significant cost saving benefits contributing to a highly efficient building.
Here are four key learning points that you can expect to learn from this webinar:
- Understand the decision-making process that went behind changing technologies. Adiabatic humidification was new to the health care marketplace and now included in the ASHRAE 170 guidelines.
- Review and understand the ideal mechanical footprint as well as within the air handling units that can service an entire healthcare institution. Identify challenges and solutions.
- Understand the "cooling effect" and the energy reductions that can be expected when introducing this technology.
- Review the numbers from the case study that were used in the decision making process with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
