Lesson Learned/Best Practice
There should be effective communication with facility personnel through a consistent process. The use of a Disruption Notice Permit ensures full understanding and coordination between the construction team and hospital. The permit acts as an agenda guide to ensure all questions are asked and answered prior to commencement of work.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
Implement the use of a Disruption Notice Permit or similar process. Use this or similar method to implement a formal standard process of conveying the extent of disruptive construction activities. In order to reduce impact to hospital operations, effective communication and joint understanding ensures collaborative success.
