Mount Sinai Hospital

Lobby, Art Gallery, Security Renovations

Mount Sinai Hospital is world renowned as a research facility and acute care health sciences centre with numerous clinical strengths, including women’s and infants’ health, chronic disease management, specialized cancer care, emergency medicine, and geriatrics.

HH Angus’ scope of work for this renovation project included two new entrances, exterior pathway lighting, a showcase art gallery/healing centre, food court, security desk and waiting area. The work also incorporated part of the level above the main lobby.

The mechanical scope included a dedicated Air Handling Unit for the kitchen, an ecology unit with roof-mounted exhaust to serve kitchen hoods in the food court concessions, as well as the complete renovation of the HVAC, fire protection, and plumbing systems for the renovated area. This included mechanical services for concessions and the provision of DDC controls.

Our electrical scope included reworking the fire alarm and security system, new electrical infrastructure, and new custom lighting. A lighting control system was designed to manage lighting in a variety of spaces, including the new art gallery/healing centre, waiting area, food court, exterior pathways, and synagogue. Design for the two new main entrances provided power for revolving doors, along with custom interior and exterior lighting.

Several design changes were required during construction to satisfy owner-driven revisions. User meetings were held to confirm that the scope of work was clear before final drawings were submitted. We also provided review sets and cut sheets to ensure the design met the unique requirements of the end users.

Continous operations

The project had to be executed in multiple phases because the Hospital’s main floor could not be closed to visitors and patients. HH Angus responded by providing close coordination with the prime consultant, the hospital and contractors on site in order to ensure smooth project delivery.

Listening to stakeholders 

An interesting challenge for the lighting design team was the need for the custom lighting and controls package to incorporate the design requirements from the curator of the new art gallery, as well as from the Rabbi of the Hospital’s synagogue.
