  • The Los Angeles County Department of Public Works is in the process of upgrading the existing 38-acre Martin Luther King Jr. Medical Center Campus. The project, being constructed under a Design Build Methodology, involves multiple buildings broken into two main projects to be constructed and coordinated simultaneously – the Hospital Renovation Project or Inpatient Tower Renovation Project (IPT) and the Multi-Service Ambulatory Care Center (MACC). The County has a goal of LEED Silver Certification for the MACC, IPT and Ancillary projects. Of utmost importance are the start-up and commissioning of the newly upgraded Central Plant and phasing out of the existing plant in order to minimize disruptions to the operation of the new Hospital. Systems to be commissioned include Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, Low Voltage Systems, and Specialty Systems.
