Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
Advanced Thermal Solutions was recently consulted to help design a flooring refurbishment system for a critical air handling unit at Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. This high profile project focused on an existing 200,000 CFM AHU that was experiencing a lot of water carry over due to the high air velocities through the cooling coils. During the peak cooling season, this resulted in up to 3”-4” of standing water which was a health concern and was damaging the unit floor. ATS worked with the engineer to provide a sloped system that would drain the water and provide protection against future damage.
A 2-4” concrete overlay was installed on top of the existing AHU floor which was then sloped to 2 new side drains. Once the concrete work was completed, ATS coated & sealed the concrete with an anti-microbial epoxy that meets all NFPA-90A fire code standards. There were many challenges with this project including the installation around the existing chilled water piping & coils. ATS also helped develop a schedule to install the flooring system around the hospital's busy schedule. The unit had to be up and running after each shift since there was no redundancy in the HVAC system. In the end, ATS was able to provide an engineered solution that met the customer's expectations and limited the down time of this critical air handling unit.
