Technology Solutions Case Studies

Regions Hospital Campus
In addition to providing a full suite of integrated low voltage services for the hospital expansion, ECSI was the low voltage contractor selected for the recent addition of the new 8-story Mental Health Clinic. We installed a cutting edge fire alarm system that ties into the existing campus network and a state of the art paging system. In addition to providing on-going maintenance for the hospital, we have worked on several projects throughout the Regions campus.
The Mother Baby Birth Center
The Mother Baby Center was an addition to Abbott Northwestern Hospital. ECSI’s work included expanding the existing Notifier fire alarm system into the new space, and re-working Abbott’s existing paging system and expanding it into the new space. We also provided a new Accutech infant protection system as well as consultation services for the access control and CCTV systems. The 96,000-square-foot four-story building includes 24 private patient rooms, a 20-bed ante-partum/post partum unit, 13 labor and delivery rooms, three operating rooms and skyway access to Abbott Northwestern. Hunt Electric Corporation was the electrical contractor on this project.
Bishop Henry Whipple Federal Building
This project is a multi-phase remodel and modernization of a 618,000 s.f. facility with approximately 1 million feet of communications cabling installed. We have teamed with Leviton and Superior Essex for hardware and cabling. The installation includes over 1 million feet of category 6 cable, nearly 7,500 category 6 jackets, 50,000+ feet of fiber optic and copper backbone cabling, and more than 100 closets with equipment racks and ladder racking.
The Science Teaching + Student Services Building
The Science Teaching + Student Services Building at the University of Minnesota replaces the demolished Science Classroom Building. The 115,000 s.f. facility houses (10) new, state-of-the-art “active learning” classrooms, (5) multi-purpose classrooms, (2) larger lecture halls, and numerous student services offices. ECSI performed the installation of the voice/data cabling system and the installation of distributed audio and video systems. These systems were installed to fit into the unique architectural elements of this cutting edge educational facility.
