Banner Thunderbird – Medical Center

Banner Thunderbird Medical Center is a 513-bed acute care hospital offering heart care, surgery services, cancer care, orthopedics, pediatrics, critical care nursery, neurosurgery, and women’s and infants services program. The scope for this project included acoustics, noise and vibration control design services. The seven-story tower includes a new emergency department, telemetry floors and 200 beds. Deliverables included an acoustical analysis for the HVAC equipment systems for the South Tower Expansion. Recommendations were made for ductwork for patient rooms, medical procedure rooms, senior staff offices and conference and training spaces. Radiated noise from air handler units was also addressed. Additionally, the relocations of CVA units were recommended. Vibration control issues that could compromise noise critical spaces were detailed. Based upon device quantities for each room, maximum Noise Criterion-levels for diffuser/grilles was provided for selected spaces. Sound isolation between spaces was also addressed and partition sizes and designs were provided. This project has been complete since 2008.
