Hunt Engineering understands that healthcare is a specialized field. We work closely with our clients to understand their needs and offer solutions. Additionally, when applicable, we coordinate with the multiple agencies which review and approve plans for healthcare projects. Specific and relative communications are started early in the design process and continued throughout the project. For existing facilities our design work takes into account infection control procedures, required phasing of work and the sensitive nature of the healthcare field. The examples listed below provide a good sample of the wide range of healthcare design work we provide:
Jefferson Healthcare, Hospital and Outpatient Facilities:
Hunt Engineering has provided multiple projects for Jefferson Healthcare, some of these projects include: Consulting on the hospital Laboratory HVAC system, Consulting for the hospital Surgery AHU system, New HVAC system for the Records department (2012), Sterilizer piping/pumping system, Medical gas system extension, Mechanical and electrical revisions to the commercial kitchen. Recently finished are the Mechanical and electrical engineering design for newly licensed Ambulatory Surgical Center. For many of these projects we worked directly for the Hospital, for other projects like the Ambulatory Surgical Center we worked as a sub consultant to Coates Design.
Extendicare, Skilled Nursing Facilities:
Hunt Engineering has provided engineering support on multiple projects in the Northwest for Extendicare, working both as a prime consultant for mechanical and electrical upgrades and as a sub-consultant supporting architectural projects. The scope of work for these projects include Mechanical System replacements, Power system upgrades, Life Safety Upgrades, Fire Sprinkler Systems, Training Kitchens, Physical Training and short term rehabilitation, offices and modifications to resident rooms. Hunt Engineering worked directly for Extendicare on many of these projects and as a sub-consultant to Coates Design on others.
Residential Treatment Facility, Port Angeles Washington:
This project fulfills a specific need for short term care that was greatly needed in the area. We worked closely with the owner and architect to meet the requirements for this state licensed facility. We also worked closely with the design team to keep the scope of the project within the functional program so the project could be constructed with the funds that were available. Hunt Engineering worked as a sub-consultant to Lindberg Smith on this project.
Park View Villas, Assisted Living, Port Angeles Washington:
Working with Lindberg Smith Architects, Hunt Engineering has designed several projects for Park View Villas. Our projects include: designing a commercial laundry facility with the special requirements for industrial washing and drying machines; an addition for a nursing office and exam room; enclosing a courtyard to provide a dayroom and adding a dinning space.
Data Centers supporting Electronic Medical Records:
See Data Centers (link) for additional information on our Data Center design qualifications. Hunt Engineering has designed significant facilities for multiple clients.
MRT/ CTs and X-Ray:
Hunt Engineering has designed mechanical and electrical systems to support the complex requirements of for these systems. Our familiarity with both medical facilities and data centers allows us to be very effective in the design, and coordination with the equipment supplier for these facilities.
