Hospital Expansion Project
Multiple prime design delivery system for a private hospital expansion project. Plans called for separate HVAC units for each hospital room, rather than a centralized HVAC system. The compartmentalized cooling system led to inconsistent humidity levels, and the development of mold in certain HVAC units due to condensation. Owner claim against the design team for property damage, remediation costs and indemnity for patient personal injury claims exceeded the available design professional insurance.
