For its new 17-story, approximately 2.5 million-square-foot hospital in Dallas, Parkland Health & Hospital System selected Burns & McDonnell to perform an energy analysis and conceptual and detailed design for the mission-critical central utility plant (CUP). The plant features 16,500 tons of cooling, 1,000 tons of heat pump chilling, 230,000 pounds per hour of steam and 20 MW of emergency power to support 2.5 million square feet of hospital and medical office buildings.
