The Lurie Childrens Hospital is the tallest childrens hospital in the world. The building is 23 stories high and in total 1,255,000 SF. The small footprint and high energy needs of the facility required a special fuel system design. The central plant included 5 generators of 2 MW capacity located at the lower level, and a set of boilers located on the 23rd level upper floor. Fuel is stored in 3 underground storage tanks of 40,000 gallon capacity.
The Earthsafe integrated solution included C900 Master Controls, pump controllers, day tanks, filter polishers, and boiler feed tanks. All fuel system data was integrated via BACnet to the larger facility management system.
