Their challenge

United Technologies Corporation (UTC) approached Salas O’Brien to provide permit and construction design for their new system and to streamline process and approvals required by the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) and the interconnection with Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E).

Our solution

In collaboration with UTC and the Director of Facilities at St. Helena Hospital, the Salas O’Brien team designed a system that would fit into the hospital’s long-term sustainability plan while meeting current and future needs. The installation was the first of its kind for a healthcare facility on the West Coast.
