Facility name: Menorah Medical Center

Project classification: Hospital – Horizontal Expansion
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 0972300007
Lesson Learned number: 32
Impact: Quality


Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Starting the project with A/E/GC on board and interviewing major trades as a team seemed to work very well in terms of entire team buy-in and creating collaborative culture on a Early Design Involvement (EDI) project.

Bring on Steel and Exterior Skin earlier; Elevators early was a big win; Ptube was unnecessary to bring on early; evaluate the p-tube system early to determine extent of EDI involvement needed

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

Mid-SD/end of SD seems like the optimal time to get trade partners on board to get maximum input and not waste time; Replicate this approach in the future
