High Level of Collaboration Allows Operating Suite to Remain Open During Renovations
Any time a project requires various subcontractors to work together, challenges are expected. There can be miscommunications, unrealistic expectations, culture clashes and difficulties coordinating schedules. That is why the Inova Fairfax Hospital Immediate Needs Project, a complicated infrastructure upgrade with major updates to the mechanical, plumbing, medical gas and electrical systems, stands out. Led by L2 Construction Management Corporation, the project called for the highest levels of collaboration to prevent any interruption to the operating rooms suite.
This exceptional feat earned L2, Inova and the subcontractors on the project the Great Team Award during the 2018 Metro Washington’s American Subcontractor Association Subby Awards. BION, inc., which served as the mechanical contractor on the project, nominated L2 for the award.
“The logistics of performing this work while keeping the operating suites functional created quite the notable challenge,” said BION CEO Josie Geiger, CHC. “We attribute the ability to overcome this challenge to the level of involvement and consideration given to everyone on the construction team. The recognition is well-deserved; we are honored to have been able to work with this great team of professionals.”
BION remains impressed with the coordination orchestrated by Inova and L2, and by the cooperation shown by all of the subcontractors throughout this highly complex project. Learn more about the Inova Fairfax Hospital Immediate Needs Project and view photos of the work.
