Faithful+Gould Operations Director Dave Scott and project team members Environmental Systems Design and Johnson Controls spoke at the Midwest Healthcare Engineering Conference and Trade Show on November 12th at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Dave discussed the John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County: Fundamental and Enhanced Construction Management Case Study which touched on Faithful+Gould’s guaranteed energy performance and clean steam piping replacement project at the hospital. The presentation included the day to day risks and challenges, security and logistics, unique requirements, communication and scheduling that this contract entails.
Dave states, “Stroger Hospital is a 1.2 million square foot public healthcare facility that receives over 155,000 ER patients each year, which includes approximately 600 gunshot victims, 260 stab wound victims and over 900 traffic accident patients. In 2013, Stroger’s physicians performed 5,242 inpatient and 6,664 outpatient surgeries. It is one of the largest and busiest public hospitals in the country."
"The projects that we have undertaken within the hospital have required us to be very creative and flexible with our construction methods, coordination, equipment shutdowns and scheduling. It was a great opportunity to share this experience with other healthcare constituents at the conference!”
