Project Update: Marlborough Hospital Cancer Pavilion

Last week the Marlborough team managed to fight off an increase in the RTU size from 50 to 60 tons.

At the beginning of the week the mechanical engineers informed the team that they had been using glazing values for triple glazing, which had since been switched to double glazing earlier during a budget validation, deeming curtain wall unaffordable.

Tocci put into motion a search for a double pane glass that would meet the requirements to keep the unit as currently sized, avoiding larger ductwork, more money for mechanical equipment, dropped ceilings, and compromised aesthetics throughout the whole building. Luckily, the labor cost of having to coordinate the mechanical changes across the entire project was also avoided.
