Reduced energy consumption by nearly 40% IMEG provided structural, MEP, technology, acoustics, and architectural lighting design for Advocate Sherman Hospital’s 255-bed greenfield hospital in Elgin, IL. The facility features the largest lake-coupled geothermal system in the world and saves nearly 40% in energy usage and upward of a million dollars a year, making it one of the most energyefficient healthcare facilities in the world. The 18-foot deep lake provides 2,400 tons of cooling, with room to expand to 3,400 tons as the campus grows. Loops of piping structured in 30’x8’ pre-assembled grids are floated to the bottom of the lake. The system features 177 miles of polyethylene pipe, 175 heat exchangers and 757 water-to-air heat pumps to circulate energy throughout the facility. The hospital’s entry and lake levels meet in a dramatic, multi-story atrium framed by a unique steel structure dubbed the Tree of Life. This feature utilizes interconnected round columns curving simultaneously in two directions to dramatically cantilever 65 feet above the lobby floor. In addition to providing a warm and welcoming feel for patients, the Tree of Life supports the weight of the lobby’s smoke evacuation equipment and roof framing.

HOSPITALS Shriners Hospital for Children (MO) - 90,000-sf New Children’s Specialty Hospital MEP, Technology, Medical Equipment Planning Deaconess Hospital (IN) - 363,000-sf Master Plan & Greenfield Hospital Structural, MEP, Technology 10 IMEG provided MEP, fire protection and technology and security engineering design; medical equipment planning, budgeting, and procurement; and construction administration services for the new, 90,000-sf Shriners Hospital for Children, located on the BJC Healthcare campus in St. Louis, MO. The new pediatric orthopedic hospital replaced the former, 50-year-old Shriners hospital. The new facility includes 12 inpatient beds, three surgical suites, 18 clinic examination rooms, central sterile, lab, outpatient clinic and radiology. The project also features enhanced space for the clinical research center for metabolic bone diseases and more room for same-day surgery patients. A major challenge for medical equipment planning on this project was to maintain equipment costs within pre-project budgets. Also challenging was brokering local requests with Shriners International equipment standards. IMEG provided MEP, technology and structural engineering services for Deaconess Hospital’s Gateway campus located on 36 acres adjacent to the original hospital and a new central utility plant in Evansville, IN. The new Gateway site features a 145-bed main hospital linked to the existing hospital, a three-story heart hospital with provisions for a future fourth floor, a four-story MOB, a new 14,000-sf central utility plant, and a 15,000-sf, two-story atrium connecting the buildings. IMEG developed concept layouts and presented viable options for site utility routing, decision matrices for planning meetings and presented multiple central plant layouts. We also were involved in various pre-planning sessions after the master plan to identify utility routing for utility companies to prepare the site for the current and future expansions.
