Mesquite Specialty Hospital Addition

  • Project Location: Mesquite, TX
  • Owner/Client: Mesquite Specialty Hospital
  • Project Description:

Mesquite Specialty Hospital in Mesquite, Texas recently added a 10-bed wing to their facility, and asked DXS to incorporate an energy efficient HVAC system through a simplified front-end controller to work with the rest of the building.

The addition was provided with 22 tons of Daikin VRV heat recovery with 16 indoor ducted FXMQ units. Three Rebel rooftop units were also installed: one dedicated outdoor air unit, and two units for controlling space temperature. DXS was able to meet specific requirements from the owner regarding control capabilities that allowed the VRV central controller to tie into the rooftop units.

Healthcare Key Considerations

At a time when hospitals and medical services must find new ways to reduce costs, DXS offers one solution that has nothing to do with diagnoses and treatments.

Our team partners with architects and mechanical engineers who specialize in healthcare construction to design VRF air conditioning systems for hospitals, medical office buildings, long-term care facilities, and 24-hour emergency care clinics.  With an in-depth understanding of the compliance issues of these structures, we deliver energy-efficient systems that reduce overall operating costs.  Our clients also appreciate that VRF systems provide comfort to patients through greater temperature control of individual patient rooms.

Key Considerations

  • In-depth understanding of healthcare building codes
  • Systems have the ability to reduce and eliminate cross contamination of air sources
  • Tight temperature control of multiple zones for individual patient rooms
  • Opportunity to reduce overall construction cost
  • Energy-efficient system reduces energy costs 20 to 50 percent
  • Similar benefits for Assisted Living facilities
  • DXS onsite at five key junctures:  onsite training prior to installation, quality control checks during installation, during start-up, 30 days after commissioning for building owner verification, and ongoing training for staff
  • Fast, dependable service and maintenance support after installation
  • Complete inventory of parts and equipment
