In 2014, NewYork-Presbyterian (NYP) Health System initiated a contract with Insight Civil Engineering, PLLC for Asset Management and Preventative Maintenance Program Deployment at the Lower Manhattan Hospital campus. Requested services included creating a comprehensive inventory of hospital assets, cataloguing assets utilizing barcoding tags and handheld scanning devices, managing an Asset Database build-out that mirrors existing asset conditions in the facility, developing a Preventative Maintenance Procedures Manual with schedule, and Quality Assurance/Quality Control. The scope of work included development of recommended maintenance procedures and best practices based on knowledge of requirements outlined in applicable codes and standards (i.e. Joint Commission Standards, NYC Building, Fire, Plumbing, Electrical Codes, Department of Health, ANSI, ASHRAE, and OSHA).
The project was delivered utilizing a phased approach. Phase I scope encompassed all assets in the facility subject to regulations and standards governed by the Joint Commission Environment of Care codes. These asset groups included all components of the fire protection system, piped medical gas systems, all emergency power supply systems (EPSS), life safety components such as fire and smoke doors, eye wash stations, and infection control assets. Phase II scope consisted of more general mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) system components.
Between the scope for Phases I & II of the project, Insight Civil Engineering inventoried and assessed over 2,200 assets throughout the 170 bed facility. As a direct result of the successful delivery of this project, the client has requested additional ancillary services and contract extensions from Insight Civil Engineering.
