A U.S. Coast Guard multimission building and vessel-support facility project required a revised site plan, ultimately benefitting the project’s overall outcome.
Collaboration between engineers and contractors leads to waste elimination and cost savings.
Bayhealth is central and southern Delaware’s largest health care system. The new health care campus anchors its services by hosting an inpatient acute care hospital as well as an adjoining ambulatory care center to create a community-focused health village (see Figure 3). At the onset of the project, Bayhealth made its goal clear: deliver the hospital at least 3 months earlier than comparable health care projects. Integrated project delivery (IPD) helped the team deliver a high-quality hospital below cost and ahead of traditional schedules.
Just about every building project, from a skyscraper to a small hospital renovation, must be commissioned to ensure its safety and functionality. By focusing on proper systems operation, problem solving, and teamwork, commissioning can ensure systems function as intended.
