Equipment Layout & Technical Services



Upon approval of the preliminary design concepts, and general layout medical plans, UHS will furnish the layout drawings showing the locations and footprints of all approved major equipment and furniture within each room on a floor by floor basis. This is done to test for space adequacy and efficiency of circulation patterns. The 1:100 loaded drawings will be worked out to indicate all recommended spatial changes.

They are designed to indicate the recommended finishes for the components of each space, i.e. walls, ceilings, floors, doors, and windows, or wherever medical considerations require hospital-specific finishes.

Once the spatial configuration of the hospital is finalized in the 1:100 loaded drawings, 1:50 or 1:20 environmental and technical requirements layout plans are prepared. 1:20 room-by-room loaded technical layouts show all electromechanical requirements necessary, such as technical information on space heating, ventilation, air conditioning, controlled temperatures, relative humidity, structural and any other requirements for hospital-specific conditions.

1:20 layout plans are also prepared to illustrate on a room-by-room basis the exact locations and layouts of approved equipment and furniture, in plan and elevation. They also show the distribution of major electro-mechanical loads, including water supply, drainage, exhaust and gas outlets, main power supply, emergency power supply, uninterrupted power supply (UPS), medical gas, general lighting intensities, emergency lighting conditions, and any other special electro-mechanical requirements related to hospital specific conditions.
