UPMC Hillman Cancer Center Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
The Hillman Cancer is a 200,000 SF, $125 million medical facility dedicated to cancer research and treatment in the Shadyside section of Pittsburgh.
The medical program includes bio-medical laboratories, animal facilities, BSL-3 containment lab, flow cytometry labs, IMCPL lab, cellular products and tissue culture/processing labs, ISO 7 clean rooms, radiology suites, and ambulatory treatment areas.
The engineering scope of work included the front end campus and utility master plan, expansion of the existing central utility plant, and extending the site utilities to handle the new building. The systems include the latest variable volume air side technology with enthalpy based heat recovery, comprehensive direct digital controls architecture and a two story entry atrium that required computational fluid dynamic modeling and an engineered smoke control system. The central energy plant was expanded to include new chillers and cogeneration with heat recovery to adjacent laundry.
