Winter Park Memorial Hospital
Winter Park Memorial Hospital neded a replacement HVAC system to serve their operating rooms. The existing system needed to be removed along with virtually all of the air distribution and controls. Then, a new system would have to be installed, commissioned, and inspected by AHCA before surgeries could commence. Downtime had to be kept to an absolute minimum.
Florida Hospital executives set the goal of completing replacement in four days. MSI was awarded the project based on our commitment to meet the schedule and immediately assigned the task to our Fast-Track™ team. They developed a project plan that entailed extensive planning with the owner, coordinated the prefabrication of major structural components, met with AHCA officials and hospital representatives early in the process to make sure that as key milestones were met during the Memorial Day weekend, inspections could be made and the 60,000 cfm system could be installed and commissioned on time.
Over 100 MSI personnel worked ‘round the clock shifts during a 96-hour push. The AHCA inspections occurred on time and the project passed with no exceptions. The hospital was conducting surgeries the morning of the forth day.
We were awarded the 2003 Eagle Award (Best in Class) for this project by Associated Builders and Contractors.
