Whether building a new healthcare facility or renovating an existing one, medical equipment planners work with architects, engineers and clinical staff to identify medical equipment needed, utility services required and appropriate spaces.
The outcome of this process includes:
• Preliminary medical equipment Bill of Quantities (BOQ) during Programming/Planning Phase of the project with pricing.
• Medical Equipment BOQ during the Design Phase of the project with technical specifications.
• Loaded Drawings which are loaded floor layout plans showing locations and general layout of major medical equipment and furniture systems. These typically include all Group 1 and Group 2 equipment in addition to some Group 3 equipment.
• Engineering specific reports that highlight typical detailed design requirements needed by other sub-consultants and engineering such as MEP, structural engineers, security, interior designers, IT, Telcom, environmental services and so forth.
Medical equipment planning is followed by Medical Equipment Procurement.
