Schematic Design Proposal

Casey Schardt

project information
Project Information
  • Location: Columbia, Maryland
  • Size: 81,000 square foot addition , and 44,000 square foot renovation to an existing 230,000 square foot facility
  • Cost: $20 Million Construction Cost
  • Constructed between September 2000 and July 2003.
  • New Emergency Dept., Birthing Dept., Neonatal ICU, Pediatric Nursing Unit, and expanded Imaging Dept.
redesigned spaces
Redesigned Spaces
  • Lobby/Reception Area: Includes reception desk, waiting room, vending area, and connecting corridors
  • Nurse Station: Features 2 desk areas open to the surrounding corridor, and an enclosed charting area
  • Conference Room: To be designed to accommodate meetings, audiovisual presentations, and video conferencing
general considerations
General Considerations
  • Cost/Efficiency
    • It is important to minimize costs while maintaining quality of all systems.
    • This includes initial costs, maintenance costs, and operational costs (power consumption)
  • Age of Occupants
    • Increased light levels to accommodate the elderly.
    • Increased uniformity (older eyes are more sensitive to glare sources.
  • Atmosphere
    • It is important to keep the hospital as uplifting as possible, to ease the feelings of anxiety and depression that the patients may be experiencing.
    • An appearance of cleanliness should be conveyed.

lobby reception area design criteria
Lobby/Reception AreaDesign Criteria
  • Reception Desk
    • Ambient Illuminance: 30 fc
    • Illuminance on Desk: 50 fc
    • Low uniformity (4:1) on surfaces to minimize veiling reflections both in paper tasks and VDTs

lobby reception area design criteria1
Lobby/Reception AreaDesign Criteria
  • Waiting/Vending Areas
    • Local level of 30 fc available for reading
    • Minimal glare to reduce veiling reflections in reading material, such as the glossy pages of magazines
  • Corridor
    • At least 5 fc for orientation

Semi-Indirect Pendant

reception area1
Reception Area
  • The semi-indirect pendant is to provide the receptionists with an ambient light level, while minimizing veiling reflections in their VDTs
  • The fluorescent slots are to provide the necessary additional light on the desk surface, while minimizing glare and veiling reflections from the horizontal surface.

Uniform background minimizes veiling reflections in VDT screens

Veiling Reflections are harmlessly bounced upward

waiting area1
Waiting Area
  • The semi-indirect pendants are to provide ambient light levels in the waiting area. They also provide a bright ceiling to convey a brighter appearance to the room.
  • Table Lamps are provided to allow the user to increase the light level for reading. They also convey a more comfortable residential mood.
  • Paintings with spot lights are added to contribute some visual interest to the space for patients to take their mind off waiting.
lobby reception area1
Lobby/Reception Area
  • Corridor and Vending Area
    • These spaces will also have the same pendants to match the waiting area and reception desk.
  • Color
    • The standard CCT for the hospital is 4100 K, however this area is to have a lower CCT of 3500 to give the space a less intimidating, more residential atmosphere.

  • The linear semi-indirect pendants are to provide the nurses with an ambient light level, while minimizing veiling reflections in their VDTs
  • The fluorescent slots are to provide the necessary additional light on the desk surface, while minimizing glare and veiling reflections from the horizontal surface.

  • Corridor
    • 2x4 lensed troffers will be used in the surrounding corridor spaces.
  • Color
    • The hospital’s standard CCT of 4100 K will be used for the nurse station and surrounding corridors.

Semi-Indirect Pendants

Wall Slot

Wallwash Downlights

conference room2
Conference Room
  • The linear semi-indirect pendants are to provide light to the table and give the ceiling a high uniform illuminance
  • The wallwash downlights, along with the pendants provide indirect light delivering light to the background, and contributing to a high uniform vertical illuminance.
  • The wall slot is simply to provide light to the white board when necessary
conference room3
Conference Room
  • The table surface is to have a high reflectance which will help to reflect some light to the underside of people’s faces, increasing uniformity
  • The wallwash downlights and the direct light from the pendants deliver a direct component for better facial modeling.
  • Dimming controls will be provided to achieve various scenes for each of the different uses of the space
overall lighting design
Overall Lighting Design
  • There are many ways that the efficiency of the lighting system can be improved.
  • For example, downlights with 2 horizontal compact fluorescent lamps are used extensively throughout the building. These fixtures have an efficiency of 39%.
  • 1x4 linear fluorescent fixtures, which are much less efficient than 2x4 fixtures are also used in many locations
  • The benefits of using more efficient fixtures will be examined.
overall lighting design1
Overall Lighting Design
  • T-5 lamps can be used in many types of fixtures also to increase their performance.
  • More dimming controls will be added in many spaces to allow the users to reduce the amount of light they use, if desired, especially in those spaces with available daylight.
  • Automatic shutoff devices, such as occupancy sensors will be added in spaces where energy can be saved when no one is in the room.
electrical design
Electrical Design
  • The emergency power loads will be calculated.
  • A new emergency generator will be sized for the addition (the facility’s existing generator was accurate, but I’ll design one assuming it wasn’t).
electrical design1
Electrical Design
  • An uninterruptible power source will be designed to serve the radiology equipment (currently when the generator starts up, the small power fluctuation affects this sensitive equipment.)
  • Panels located in the interstitial spaces will be eliminated and served from panels in other locations.
electrical design2
Electrical Design
  • New load calculations will be done to account for reduced lighting loads due to installing more efficient systems.
