This discussion of an “above and beyond” commissioning effort on two new medical office buildings for Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta puts special focus on how additional effort did not sacrifice project profitability. The course will show how the commissioning firm exceeded stakeholder expectations (and took on more responsibility as the projects progressed) by drawing on experience with past medical facilities and fully leveraging commissioning management software.

Learning objectives

  1. Coordinate the quality assurance/quality control process across the entire project team.
  2. Streamline and enhance delivery of closeout documents important for the facility operations team.
  3. Record and verify key equipment attributes to aid in development of facility preventative maintenance and inventory tracking.
  4. Lessons learned on coordination of room numbers across multiple disciplines during design and then into the facility’s wayfinding system.
