A 120-acre medical campus served by the largest lake-coupled geothermal system in the U.S. has been recognized for technological innovation by the American Society of Heating, Refrigeration, and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE).

The system at Great River Medical Center in West Burlington, IA, also is one of the first applications for use in a hospital.

“The owner’s charge to the design team was a comfortable and easy-to-maintain acute care hospital that conserved energy and lowered existing costs,” said Warren Lloyd, P.E., project manager.
