McGrath & Associates has begun construction of a $6.5 million energy center expansion at Des Peres Hospital in St. Louis. Construction is scheduled for completion in the spring of 2016. The architect is ACI Bolland Architects.

The 3,475-square-foot masonry and steel expansion will increase capacity and reliability of the hospital’s heating, cooling and emergency power systems. The expanded center will house a new chiller, boilers, switchgear, and Automatic Transfer Switches. A new cooling tower and fuel tanks will be installed adjacent to the expansion. When completed, the Des Peres Hospital energy center will total 8,875 square feet.

The project will be phased to allow the hospital and its heating, cooling and emergency power systems to remain fully operational throughout construction.
