Submittal process for prefabricated headwall units

Facility name: P-SL Medical Center

Project name: PRSTLK-022017M-Pre-Op & Recovery
Location: DENVER, CO
Project classification: Hospital – Renovation
Project type: Acute Care
Project number: 2720000019
Lesson Learned number: 89
Impact: Schedule

Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Start the submittal process for prefabricated headwall units at the start of the project.  Headwall units were not submitted and approved by the time they were ready to be installed resulting in out of sequence work for the patient bays. Because the headwall units are required when walls are being framed they need to be submitted and approved as soon as possible because they have a significant lead time.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

For trade fabricated headwalls, trade subcontractor must coordinate with the design team upon award to ensure that shop drawings are developed, submitted and approved in a timely fashion to avoid schedule delays.
