Exterior Demolition Drawings

Facility name: Menorah Medical Center

Project name: MENORA-092018M-Bed Tower Expansion
Project classification: Hospital – Horizontal Expansion
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 0972300007
Lesson Learned number: 159
Impact: Cost, Schedule

Lesson Learned/Best Practice

On future projects requiring demolition provide drawings indicating extent of work at each level.  The scope of the demolition spanned across four levels but no demo drawings were provided for the roof, only Level’s 01-04 and some exterior elevations.  The demo indicated on the drawings occurred but it was quickly identified that there were multiple discrepancies on the drawings at the roof level, and the extent of demo was not clear.  This resulted in multiple RFIs to understand the scope required, structurally and architecturally.  Due to the lack of drawings there were multiple RFIs and cost impacts associated with the extra demo.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

For each level requiring demolition provide a drawing indicating the extent of demo required.  This will minimize RFIs and potential cost impacts.
