Interfaith Medical Center
Essential Emergency System Upgrade
The Medical Center is a full-service community hospital offering inpatient and outpatient, to the Crown Heights, Brooklyn and surrounding areas. The existing Interfaith Medical Center is approximately 475,000 SF. The campus is comprised of four buildings: The Main Building, North Building, South Building, and the East Building. The age and condition of each building varies. The North Building is a 6-story building built in 1925. The Main Building is a 9-story building built in 1972. The South Building (including 1st floor ED portion) s a 4-story building built in 1998 and the East Building is a 4-story building built in 2006.
DLR Group, Fu Wilmer, Cosentini Associates and DM Engineers developed the architectual and engineering design for the new ESS (Essential Emergency System) Risers and Closets at the Interfaith Medical Center (IMC).
Previously the IMC hospital had a single branch of emergency power distribution throughout the building. The creation of the new ESS will bring IMC up to current code and will address the replacement of aging and outdated electrical equipment, provide for future load growth and improve the overall reliability of the hospital’s electrical power system. Specifically for this project DM Engineers developed the engineering design for all the decant spaces required to create the electrical risers, inclusive of intensice care unit and medical spaces.
