Abstract : There are existing single pane windows in the 1955 portion of Building 600 with no thermal break. They are located in the following areas: 1. Second floor connecting corridor to Mechanical Equipment Room. 2. Second floor Chapel windows. 3. Dining Rooms. 4. Bakery. Replacement windows for these areas would be 1" tinted insulating glass set in bronze aluminum window units containing thermal breaks. The existing single pane clear window units with storms in Building 610 are also being replaced as part of this project. Tinted 1" insulated glass will be installed in 101 windows and 2" insulated wall panels will be installed in the remaining 230 units. Hospital entry vestibules at the main entry and the emergency/ outpatient entrance would be revised to create effective entry vestibules. The main entry vestibule was visited and field measured. An approximate 9'-O" wide curved hospital entry vestibule 6'-0" long on one side and 8'-0" long on the opposite side was added as part of the 1975 expansion and renovation project. The doors are medium styled, bronze anode, set in the original anodized window wall frame system. The vestibule does not provide adequate depth to ensure exterior doors are closed before interior doors are open and vice versa, especially when wheelchair bound persons use the entrance.
