Bernhard Energy Solutions™ is currently providing mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design services for a new 440,000 square foot addition and renovation to Methodist University Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. As part of the project, Bernhard™ is providing services for upgrades and additions to the existing central energy plant to increase capacity to serve a new patient tower.
The central energy plant upgrade includes the addition of a 1,400-ton chiller and a cooling tower, along with essential power generators. A hydraulic model indicated that the additions to the plant will require new chilled water piping to be trenched across city streets to serve the facility.
