BLOX Units – Electrical Issues

Facility name: East Florida Division Office

Project name: DAVHOS-102018M-New Hospital (NOVAMC)
Location: Davie, FL
Project classification: Hospital – New
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 3597900001
Lesson Learned number: 59
Impact: Cost, Schedule, Quality

Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Make sure BLOX tightens all EMT conduit screws and couplers. Failed electrical inspections because conduit screws and couplers were loose on many units. BLOX is having to bring in multiple electricians to repair onsite.  Need to do a root cause analysis with BLOX and HCA on why their QA/QC process missed this.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Improve offsite QA/QC.  Bring in local inspectors early once BLOX units are onsite.

Issue has been addressed by HCA Healthcare with BLOX.  Actions have been taken by BLOX to correct the problem.
