PPG Industries announced that Palomar Medical Center West, a new $956 million hospital in Escondido, Calif., featuring SOLARBAN® 70XL and Solarban 60 glasses, has been named health care facility of the year by ENR California, a McGraw-Hill publication.

Designed as a “hospital of the future” by CO Architects, Los Angeles, Palomar Medical Center West is a model of sustainability that incorporates, among other elements, a 1.5-acre “green” roof, garden spaces on every level of an 11-story nursing tower, and extensive natural light transmitted through ground-to-ceiling panels of Solarban 70XL and Solarban 60 glasses.

Tom Chessum, a principal with CO Architects, said greenery and daylighting are part of a comprehensive strategy to incorporate nature’s healing qualities into the hospital’s design. “Every floor has outdoor terraces with trees and smaller plant material to provide respite and access to nature,” he said. “There’s a large number of skylights and the use of daylight opportunities, basically bringing daylight and view into work areas that would ordinarily never see the light of day.”

Solarban 70XL and Solarban 60 glasses are transparent, solar control, low-emissivity (low-e) glasses coated to transmit high levels of daylight while blocking solar heat gain to limit the use of artificial lighting and air conditioning, two of the largest sources of energy consumption in most commercial buildings.

Solarban 70XL glass has visible light transmittance (VLT) of 64 percent in a standard 1-inch insulating glass unit (IGU) and a solar heat-gain coefficient of 0.27. This produces a light-to-solar gain (LSG) ratio of 2.37 that is among the best in the industry. Solarban 60 glass has VLT of 70 percent and a SHGC of 0.38, which yields an LSG ratio of 1.85.

In addition to energy-efficient glazing and a complex “green” roof system, Palomar Medical Center West incorporates high-efficiency heating, ventilation and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems that help the hospital consume 14 percent less energy than prescribed under California Title 24 energy standards. The facility also features low-flow plumbing fixtures, a system for recycling wastewater from air-conditioning cooling towers, and extensive use of recycled or renewable building products.

ENR California’s Best Projects competition recognizes top achievements in local construction and design as selected by a panel of judges. Honored projects were highlighted in the Dec. 3 issue of the magazine.
