Bluewater Health Central Heating Plant

Milman has designed a 9m x 18m steel platform capable of supporting 50 metric tonne combined heat and power unit on the roof of a Bluewater Health hospital in Sarnia, ON.

Due to the sensitivity of the nearby operating rooms, strict vibration criteria needed to be met. To achieve this, we designed the platform to include two levels of steel with the upper level supported by spring vibration isolators. Additionally, the lower platform connects only to existing building at the columns.

A cladded wall was also designed to partially conceal the unit from public view.
