Mercy Medical Center-No. Iowa Energy Center, Mason City, Iowa
Henkel is winding down on the completion of a multi-phase expansion project which includes a new emergency power generation and distribution system for the entire hospital. The project also included an expansion of the hospital’s loading dock, waste removal system, new concrete paving and site work including and underground storm water retention system.
The Energy Center building was constructed of precast wall panels and has incorporated state of the art acoustical elements to meet the sound limits of the surrounding residential neighborhood including a decorative precast concrete wall screen north of the project site. Henkel crews installed two 2.25 MW emergency power generators that are Tier 4i certified which are the first of its kind to be installed in Iowa. The project involved many carefully scheduled shutdowns of all critical areas of the hospital, often at night. The first phase of construction started late 2013 and the full project including all phases were completed on schedule.
