Lesson Learned/Best Practice

For HCA Tenant Improvement Projects located in 3rd Party Owned Buildings, verify existing construction is suitable to allow work to start and avoid schedule delays.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

HCA Design and Construction, the Design Team, and the Contractors should walk the area as soon as access is available to review the existing construction conditions.

At any point during planning, design, or pre-construction that a non-compliant issue arises, it should be communicated to all parties so solutions can be determined prior to planned construction start.

Cracking is a structural issue that needs review by a structural consultant. “Residue” of Fibers on the face of the slab affects flooring installations and required a planned solution.
