Value Delivered

Combining advanced systems expertise and extensive experience in the healthcare sector, EMCOR Services Northeast’s (ES Northeast) controls division was selected by St. Luke’s Hospital to replace their existing building automation system (BAS) in their 300-bed facility. 

The new system consistently maintains the climate in the facility, helping to ensure the patients and staff stay comfortable, while also providing optimal performance of the building systems and reducing energy consumption and costs.

Client Objectives

St. Luke’s Hospital’s top priority was to replace the existing BAS with a more up-to-date, robust system.


After an extensive review of the multiple existing HVAC control systems, we collaborated with the client to create a customized program to replace the outmoded hardware and software. ES Northeast installed new equipment with an improved graphical interface that allows maintenance personnel to access the HVAC systems more effectively. 

This retrofit work will significantly reduce the building’s energy consumption and operating costs, as well as improving the comfort level for the hospital’s patients and staff.
