Our Best Practices and Lessons Learned Ensure Reliable & Compliant Patient Care

We will enhance the commissioning process at your hospital by evaluating the specifics and adapting our process to meet the unique needs of each project. Our approach is simple: we evaluate what is working, what is not working, the reason of non-conformance and provide a clear path to resolution. All of our efforts are focused on how we can add value to the team, rather than standing on the sidelines and recording events.

We work with the operations staff and contractors to identify and resolve issues that are critical success factors to the operators, including maintainability; infection control; system flexibility; and quality; rather than reporting construction status and minor issues. We use a Fishbone Diagram to help the team identify the underlying root causes of an undesired condition, rather than chasing symptoms and "fixing" the problem until it happens again.

Lean Construction Techniques

We use our in-house construction experience and knowledge of Lean Construction techniques to work with the team and identify the optimal times to integrate commissioning into the construction process, rather than waiting until the end of the project where schedule and budgets are greatly impacted with changes.
