St. Luke’s Hospital

By | Featured Project | No Comments

Project: St. Luke’s Hospital


Project Name: St. Luke’s Hospital – Anderson Campus Expansion
Location: 2200 St. Luke’s Blvd, Easton, PA
Market: Healthcare / Specialty Pavilion
Application: Building Heat
Mechanical Engineer: Snyder Hoffman Associates
Mechanical Contractor: Worth & Company
Sheet Metal Contractor: Worth & Company

Equipment:
• Three Fulton Vantage Model VTG-5000DF Dual Fuel (Gas/#2 Oil) Condensing Boilers
• Schebler Model EVD Double Wall Exhaust Pipe
• Enervex CASV Boiler Exhaust System with (3) RSV-450 Fans & Controls
• Enervex Model SMDS Over-Draft Dampers
• Enervex MCAS-021 Combustion Air System with SFTA-021 Fan & Controls

Located in Bethlehem Township, this new 75,000 sq/ft Specialty Pavilion expands the breadth of offerings at the St. Luke’s Anderson Campus. This new building includes ambulatory surgery, urology, OB/GYN, gastroenterology, and laboratory services. Designed with convenience in mind, this facility gives patients easy access to a 21st-century hospital with the highest quality healthcare in the Lehigh Valley.

In addition to the new services offered in the Specialty Pavilion, St. Luke’s Anderson Campus features advanced services in the Hospital, Cancer Center, and Medical Office Building. Patients benefit from inpatient care, emergency room services, surgical services, radiology services, and more. At the time of its opening in 2011, the St. Luke’s Anderson Campus was the first new, full-service, acute-care hospital built in Pennsylvania in 40 years.

During the project’s design phase, the mechanical engineer, Snyder-Hoffman, consulted with UEP Northeast, specifically due to its representation of Fulton and their Vantage dual-fuel condensing boiler. The is a unique condensing boiler in that it’s highly efficient and fully condensing when firing on Natural Gas and, at the flip of a switch, can also burn #2 fuel oil. These boilers are proving heat to the building and, being installed in a critical care hospital, they need a backup fuel source for emergency purposes. The Fulton Vantage boiler was designed and optimized for this exact application. In addition, UEP Northeast designed and furnished the exhaust and combustion air systems for the boilers. This includes Schebler Model EVD exhaust pipe, Enervex Chimney Automation System & Over-Draft System as well as an Enervex Combustion Air System. In short, these systems provide adequate combustion air while also maintaining ideal draft so these boilers can operate at peak efficiency.

Crooked Billet Elementary School

Project: Crooked Billet Elementary School


Project Name: Crooked Billet Elementary School
Location: 101 Meadowbrook Ave, Hatboro, PA
Market: K-12 Education
Application: Building Heat
Mechanical Engineer: Snyder Hoffman Associates
Mechanical Contractor: Allstates

Equipment:
• Two Fulton Endura Plus Model EDR-3000 Condensing Boilers
• Schebler Model EVD Double Wall Exhaust Pipe
• Bell & Gossett Base Mounted Pumps, Series e-1510
• Bell & Gossett Triple Duty Valves & Suction Diffusers
• Wessels Air Separators, Expansion Tanks, Chemical Feeder & Glycol Make-up Unit

The newly constructed Crooked Billet Elementary School is part of the Hatboro-Horsham School District. The original school was built in 1950, and was demolished in the summer of 2018, so that construction on this new school could begin. The name goes back to the Battle of Crooked Billet, a Revolutionary War battle, and was fought on the land where the school stands. This new school will be comprised of all children living within the borough of Hatboro, and will serve approximately 500 students from kindergarten through grade five.

UEP Northeast was contacted in the design phase by the projects mechanical engineer, Snyder-Hoffman. This firm designs many schools and prefers Firetube style condensing boilers, such as the Fulton Endura. This is due to its rugged construction and ability to be piped in a variable primary flow arrangement. This piping layout is simpler from an installation standpoint and more efficient from an operation standpoint. UEP Northeast has supplied hundreds of boilers to elementary, middle and high schools. This is mainly due to our partnership with Fulton and the high-quality boilers they manufacture – low maintenance, highly efficient, and 30+ year longevity – all important features for schools.

Penn Medicine Radnor

Project: Penn Medicine Radnor


Project Name: Penn Medicine Radnor
Location: 145 King of Prussia Rd, Radnor, PA
Market: Healthcare / Medical Office Building
Application: Building Heat
Mechanical Engineer: Stantec Architecture & Engineering, LLC
Mechanical Contractor: AT Chadwick Co, Inc
Sheet Metal Contractor: Aerdux Inc

Equipment:
• Two Fulton Endura Plus Model EDR-6000 Hydronic Condensing Boilers
• Schebler Model EVD Double Wall Exhaust Pipe

In the Spring of 2020, Penn Medicine opened a state-of-the-art, four story, 250,000 sq/ft multispecialty outpatient facility in Radnor, PA. This new location replaced its facility in the Township which was operated since 1997. The facility will provide comprehensive cancer care, including newly available radiation oncology services and chemotherapy provided by the Abramson Cancer Center, as well as primary care, heart and vascular, orthopedic and neuroscience care. Additional service includes same-day surgery, with six operating rooms and four endoscopy suites, along with full radiology and laboratory services. Patients will also have access to cutting-edge Penn Medicine clinical trials, expanding access to more patients without having to travel into Philadelphia.

Through their relationship with the projects mechanical engineer, Stantec, and Mechanical Contractor, AT Chadwick, UEP Northeast furnished (2) Fulton Endura 6000 MBH high-efficiency condensing boilers. These hydronic boilers will provide building heat as well as snow melt in critical areas of the facility. We also worked with sheet metal contractor, Aerdux, to provide Schebler double wall piping to vent the boilers products of combustion to the atmosphere.
