Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) has opened a 2nd hospital in King of Prussia, PA. The new facility and its 24/7 Emergency Department will give more families easier access to CHOP’s best-in-class pediatric specialists. The hospital will be connected to CHOP’s existing Specialty and Urgent Care Center. Founded in 1855, CHOP was the first pediatric hospital in the nation, and this is the first time in their history that they’ve created a new hospital.

UEP Northeast was highly involved in the design phase from the very beginning. Through our relationship with the projects mechanical engineer, Ballinger, we assisted in the design of many aspects of the hospital. The building is heated by (3) Fulton Vantage 6000 MBH dual fuel condensing boilers. The facilities steam needs, including humidification and sterilization steam, are being served by (3) Fulton VMP 150 HP boilers. This steam boilers are part of a fully Engineered Skid package that includes deaerator, blowdown separator, water treatment and controls. The UEP Northeast team worked very closely during the installation phase with the project’s mechanical contactor, AT Chadwick Co.

UEP Northeast also assisted in the design of the venting and exhaust for the boilers, kitchen hoods & generators. This included assisting Ballinger with product selections, specifications, sizing calculations and CAD drawings. The Schebler venting and Enervex mechanical draft equipment was installed by the projects sheet metal contractor, Aerdux. There are hundreds of feet of venting material in various diameters installed throughout the hospital.
