Community Hospital of the Monterey Peninsula (CHOMP)
Monterey, CA

Syska Hennessy Group was selected to implement a Master Plan for the expansion and modernization of this historic regional health facility while generating significant energy cost savings with little or no impact on either the existing hospital operations. The original facility, designed by Edward Durell Stone, is carefully situated in a grove of mature Monterey pines overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Project Features:

  • 120 Med/Surg Beds
  • Cardiac Unit
  • Energy Study/Rebates
  • Integrated Cogeneration Plant

Innovations and Solutions: Solutions provided to the client included the analysis of new source of onsite energy to support the addition of the master plan. Syska worked with the project team to complete an energy consumption study of the existing Medical Center Building and presented a cost savings alternative that included the economical re-use of waste heat generated onsite. Our study resulted in significant cost savings for the hospital that included a rebate from the local utility company as a result of our work.
