Healthcare facility projects involve nuances that
can be overlooked by design and construction teams being pushed to meet
deadlines, presenting an opportunity for the commissioning provider (CxP) to go
above and beyond a typical commissioning scope. The CxP can add value to the
role by understanding and identifying what these nuances are, and offering
input to the design and construction teams throughout the entire project. An OPR session for a healthcare project can sometimes
exceed 30 people. While this may seem
overwhelming, it is the beginning of gathering valuable information that will
be used throughout the rest of the project.
With the proper process, a development session of this size can easily be
managed. The design review process
should be performed by a CxP with an in-depth understanding of the codes,
standards, and regulatory requirements that will influence and guide the design
and should occur at multiple stages. The detail gained through developing the
OPR will include input from such team members as hospital infection control,
which becomes important to focus on during review. During construction and post-occupancy phases,
special attention to healthcare-specific considerations must be maintained. During
this presentation the speakers will elaborate on these nuances and provide real
world examples of how a CxP can add value to healthcare projects.
