Understanding the Demands of Healthcare Design
EDM has been providing exceptional healthcare design services since the firm's inception in 1973. Our professionals work closely with our healthcare clients in planning and implementing innovative engineering design, considering issues such as patient experience, privacy, security, safety, efficiency, sustainability and technology.
Pain Management Center Relocation and Expansion | St. Louis, MO
The PMC was relocated into a new 11,000 GSF site on the 14th floor of BJC’s Center for Advanced Medicine. EDM was the lead MEP/FP Engineer to the prime, OWH Architects. Originally for a previous tenant, the existing drawings were insufficient for construction documents that would achieve BJC construction standards. EDM provided a field investigation, existing conditions verification, and established the basis for properly sized equipment, distribution systems, controls and devices. Plumbing and medical gas work required careful planning and coordination with the existing interfaces, so to not impact the day-today operations of the tenants.

Crider Health Center | Wentzville, MO
Compass Health Network
Working in coordination with the Crider Facility Manager, EDM was the Lead Engineer to renovate 2,800 SF of the main level into the new Dental Clinic. To seamlessly connect the new clinic to the existing facility, ceilings, fixtures and other infrastructure were refigured and/or removed and replaced. EDM predominately reused ceiling tiles and lighting fixtures to help keep new purchases to a minimum. EDM also designed a new fire alarm system, which tied the entire facility into one system. EDM also provided services for remodeling 4,600 SF of the lower level to accommodate a conference center that included two large classrooms, breakroom, and a catering kitchen.

Gamma Camera | Chesterfield, MO
EDMprovided structural and electrical engineering services for the installation of a new gamma camera. The structural engineer checked the load-bearing capacity of the floors in the Nuclear Medicine Laboratory for the installation, and the electrical engineer designed the power to the machine.
Mechanical engineering was provided for an evaluation of the increased load and subsequent replacement of a VAV air terminal to increase the cooling capacity to the space.

Family Health Care Center, St. Louis, MO
The Carondelet neighborhood location no longer was able to meet the number of clients, and satellite centers were, in some cases, not up to ADA compliance. Instead of updating or expanding their cramped spaces, the Owner decided to construct a new two-story facility next to the original one. At 34,000 SF, it is also a 40% increase in size.
The Center included dental facilities, vision care, laboratories, 30 exam rooms, administrative offices and large meeting rooms. The Center has two waiting rooms - one that caters to families with small children, and a second that caters to adults.
