Building 21 Surgical Addition will provide a new central surgical facility for the TNPRC.

In addition, a 2,216 GSF rooftop penthouse will be added to house mechanical and electrical equipment. A 300 GSF enclosure is also required over the existing building to provide conditioned space interconnecting the new and existing penthouses for piping and ductwork.
