Barrett Hospital Achieves LEED Gold
We would like to announce that Barrett Hospital recently achieved LEED Gold. Providing services for more than 12,000 people in Beaverhead, Madison, and Jefferson Counties, Barrett Hospital is a fully staffed medical facility. Barrett Hospital embraced the LEED certification process while building, not only showing their commitment to providing state of the art healthcare but also demonstrating a strong commitment to improving the environment as well. A LEED Gold Certification is a symbol of a well-designed, sustainable building.
The Barrett Hospital Project was a collaborative effort of JE Engineering, KB Engineering, Barrett Hospital and the construction team. Jonathan Jarvis, P.E., served as JE Engineering’s Project Manager during construction. He performed all engineering aspects of the project including design review, O&M review, on-site and static testing and cleaning of HVAC systems along with hospital systems such as medical gas and the pneumatic tube system installation verification. This LEED Commissioning building process focuses on the buildings operating costs over it’s lifetime and not just the initial costs of building, this provides significant energy and water savings and mechanical performance improvements for years to come.
Congratulations to Barrett Hospital on being the first LEED Gold Hospital in Montana.
