City of Hope Cancer Center – Irvine
Location: Irvine, California
Date of Completion: 2021
Representative: J.D. Sales
Griswold Controls Products Used: QuickSet Manual Balance Valves -Brass and Steel Flange versions and other complementary components (Flanged Strainers, Isolator S, etc).
The City of Hope Cancer Center will be a 190,000 square-foot, LEED-certified cancer center of the future in Irvine, California, and one of our personal favorite projects since it is a few miles from our factory. It is to be located on 11 acres of the master-planned FivePoint Gateway community. The center will become a regional cancer care hub in the heart of Irvine for years to come.
This patient-focused location offers highly specialized cancer care, clinical research with access to Phase 1-3 clinical trials, precision medicine, and early detection and prevention programs. It will be the home of leading cancer researchers and care professionals and be a center for innovation and compassionate care.
Every step of the way, they have been working with patients, caregivers, and the community. In fact, they began planning for the building by inviting hundreds of people to a design session. They asked participants to walk through mock-ups and provide feedback on everything from patient rooms to corridors to meeting areas. The result will be a facility that is tailor-made to Orange County.
However, not only the design work is tailor-made. The HVAC is as well and it needs to be for such an important building. This project is using brass and steel flanged QuickSet valves along with some complimentary equipment in the form of Isolator S and Flanged strainers. For those that don’t know a lot about QuickSet, here is why our clients choose it.
When a Contractor’s Manual Balance Valve readings are anything less than ±1% accurate, the engineer’s system design is costing someone money. In many installations, contractors may sacrifice accuracy for space considerations since traditional Manual Balance Valves require straight pipe length upstream and downstream. Straight pipe length is not required with Griswold’s Disturbed Flow Measurement used exclusively in the QuickSet Manual Balance Valves. When the engineer specifies a QuickSet, they can count on the balancing contractor getting a ±1% test accuracy no matter what space the contractor has to install the valve. The engineer’s QuickSet specification guarantees the energy efficiency and lower operating cost desired by the owner (Read more here).
We are so excited to be working with the City of Hope and we can’t wait to see the City of Hope Cancer Center help an immeasurable amount of lives!
