MLK County Hospital

Martin Luther King Jr Medical Center, Rooftop Cooling Tower

Compton, California

Phase-3 of MLK expansion includes a recently constructed central plant. The new upgrade consisted of designing new walkways to service the existing rooftop cooling towers and also adding new access ways to the main roof.

The innovative design approach selected by NIC Consulting managing principal, Mr. TJ Eimani was developed for BFL in such a way that it avoided the need for penetration into the existing PVC (new roofing). This was done through using a complex structural system that hangs from the sides of the existing platforms.
