Eisenhower Medical Center and LSW Engineers California, Inc. have recently been recognized with a Merit Award from Consulting Engineers and Land Surveyors of California for the construction of Eisenhower’s innovative cogeneration power plant.
Completed in 2004 at a cost of $22 million, the cogeneration power plant includes five megawatts of cogeneration power, four megawatts of emergency power, 2,000 tons of refrigeration and a 60,000 pounds per hour, high-pressure steam boiler plant. The project was led by Ali Tourkaman, Vice President, Support Services, Eisenhower Medical Center. The project design team included: LSW Engineers California, Inc. staff; Austin Veum Robbins Parshalle Architects; RBF Consultants (civil engineers); Veneklasen Associates (acoustical consultants); and N.E.I. Consultants (electrical relay designers). WDL contractors provided general construction services with Cal-Air as the primary sub contractor.
“The real credit for this project belongs to Eisenhower Medical Center,” said LSW Engineers President John Littrell, accepting the award at a special ceremony in Sacramento. “The facility [Eisenhower] recognized the need for a more reliable, more efficient and more environmentally sensitive power supply.”
