Lesson Learned/Best Practice
It was discovered that just before we started construction inside the building, we noticed that the entire hospital was not fire proofed. This resulted in design changes, communicating with local AHJ’s and time on pricing up and executing change orders.
In older buildings, it is critical to take the time to review areas that are available to see prior to starting construction.
Suggested Actions for Future Projects
