Facility Maintenance and Engineering

The Precision Constructors team can provide guidance and protocols for the total maintenance of acute care hospitals and all operating equipment. 
 

GENERAL 

The Precision Constructors team and associates can evaluate the maintenance needs for each piece of equipment, the structure itself and the associated grounds.  The implementation of the appropriate maintenance protocol increases the operational life of equipment, reduces down time and allows for the care of patients without unnecessary interruptions.  Based on the type of facility, Precision can also provide a recommendation for the most cost effective Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) to organize and streamline the maintenance processes for quality assurance and review by Authorities Having Jurisdiction (AHJ).  Additionally, assistance is available for Engineering staff screening. Precision Constructors can serve as coordinator and manager of the various processes required to set up and implement a total maintenance program to support any facility.

 

PROGRAM

 

Maintenance Requirements 

Precision Constructors can develop an inventory of equipment, safety devices and systems, emergency support systems, building envelope requirements, and grounds maintenance, to provide a comprehensive assessment of the required maintenance program for the facility.  Here are a few samples of typical maintenance requirements:

 

  • Identify an appropriate CMMS for the facility
  • Establish a Building Maintenance Program
  • Set up a complete maintenance shop
  • Mechanical and chiller system maintenance
  • Coordinate Emergency Power Distribution System testing and maintenance
  • Fire and Life Safety System testing and maintenance
  • Medical Gas system testing and maintenance
  • Plumbing and Boiler system maintenance
  • Warranty maintenance and testing requirements
  • Establish a Preventive Maintenance Program
  • Identify maintenance staffing requirements
  • Staff Training Requirements
  • Material stocking and inventory program
  • Utility Management Plan
  • Operating and Maintenance Dashboards
  • Develop a Statement of Conditions 

 

Maintenance Outsourcing

Precision Constructors can review the maintenance requirements and perform a cost comparison of the in-house maintenance program versus an outsourced maintenance program for specific equipment with a summary of the advantages of each. Assistance is also available to develop outsourced maintenance contracts.  Here are a few samples of typical maintenance outsourcing:

 

  • Generator set maintenance and testing
  • Fire and Smoke damper maintenance and testing
  • Biomedical Equipment maintenance and testing
  • Information Technology programs and equipment
  • Waste and Biohazardous Waste management
  • Fire and Life Safety Equipment maintenance and testing
  • Medical Gas system testing
  • Linen services
  • Housekeeping
  • Food Service 

 

Maintenance Staffing

Precision Constructors can assist with establishing the facility’s maintenance staffing requirements. An organizational design can be presented with a breakdown of trades, skills, and backgrounds required to perform in-house tasks. Work hours required to maintain the facility and equipment will be calculated.  We can prepare descriptions for each position required and screen & recommend personnel to fill each position identified. 

 

Computerized Maintenance Management System (CMMS) 

Precision Constructors can help identify the most appropriate software for the facility’s CMMS.  Some available services include:

 

  • Oversee the installation of the CMMS program and upload required equipment data
  • Design report mechanism to ensure required documentation for all inspection authorities
  • Develop Work Order protocols
  • Establish a material stocking and tracking process
  • Recurring supplies ordering and tracking process
  • Identify critical equipment and develop appropriate Preventive Maintenance scheduling
  • Establish Initial Training Requirements
  • Identify Recurring Training Requirements
  • Oversee the development of a Dashboard monitoring for oversight by Quality Assurance and higher management levels
