Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design for the equipment replacement of Lower Bucks Hospital’s Central Plant helping to upgrade the hospital with a more efficient and effective building infrastructure system.  Specifically, the project included the replacement of the existing steam boilers with three new 250-HP steam boilers complete with all associated controls, boiler breeching and dual fuel burners, built to operate on no.2 fuel oil or natural gas. Included with the boiler replacements were a new boiler feed water system, a new building automation system, new domestic water heaters, new water treatment, new medical gas and vacuum equipment, a new double interlocked pre-action sprinkler system, new motor control centers and a new 20,000-gallon above ground fuel oil storage tank.  This project provided the Hospital with reliable, energy efficient systems that will serve the facility for the next 25-years or more.  Wick Fisher White was the prime consultant on the project, providing guidance to Lower Bucks Hospital from conception of the project through design and construction.
