Cedars-Sinai Medical Center has high standards for the delivery of care and patient experience, and building systems must also meet this high standard. Under this premise, the facility staff is undertaking a strategic planning effort to assess and address engineering systems. The presentation team will share the process for identifying major engineering equipment to create recommendations for maintaining the equipment and will walk through typical infrastructure challenges faced, not only by Cedars-Sinai, but also by similar facilities as a campus ages. Beyond general maintenance and upgrade issues, the team will discuss sustainable options to optimize system performance that could be implemented in conjunction with facility maintenance and upgrade efforts.
Create a method for evaluation and assessment of existing engineering systems.
Discuss maintenance issues and replacement strategies in an existing functioning health care facility.
Create a checklist for protocol for construction projects in an existing facility to ensure alignment in system performance and equipment.
Explain how sustainability can be implemented in conjunction with engineering system general maintenance and upgrades.
