Facility name: Menorah Medical Center
Location: OVERLAND PARK, KS
Project classification: Hospital – Horizontal Expansion
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 0972300007
Lesson Learned number: 47
Lesson Learned/Best Practice
Based on early discussions with Kansas City Power & Light (KCP&L owner/operator of charging stations), the team was advised there would not be an extensive shutdown required for the relocation of the existing charging stations. The week prior to relocation, KCP&L surprised everyone that a 1-2 day shutdown would be required. Lesson learned was to anticipate a minimum of a one day shutdown when relocating existing EV charging stations.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Ensure better communication between KCP&L, owner and GC to understand impact to EV service. The right people should be engaged sooner to ensure that everyone understands the scope.
