Projects Challenges/Highlights

  • This was an Office of Statewide Health Planning and Developmen (OSPD) job that PDC needs approval first to proceed if there’s any deviation in the design due to conflicting information.
  • Placement of boom supports were carefully coordinated with the Vendor drawings to ensure proper fitting of medical equipment.
  • BRB connections and workpoints were properly coordinated to ensure proper design by the BRB contractor and ensure proper erectability in the field.
  • The project was delivered within the clients demanding project schedule and multiple design changes.
