Children's National Medical Center - Ambulatory Care Center (Lanham, MD)

Children’s National Health System, a non-profit health system, is ranked among the top 10 children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report. AKF was selected to provide MEP/FP engineering design services for the new four-story, 60,000 SF ambulatory care center located within a large commercial development in the suburbs of Washington, DC.

The first and second floors of the pediatric clinic house diagnostic imaging, including MRI, PET/MRI, CT, PET-CT and X-ray.  A 20,000 SF ambulatory surgery center, central sterile, prep and recovery and associated support space are also located within the facility.

In order to support the program, AKF designed the MEP/FP infrastructure for the building.  Systems consist of a boiler plant, air conditioning equipment, new emergency generator plant, electrical service, domestic water service, sewer, fire alarm, medical gas, and fire protection.
