Physician Office Renovation
Multiple prime design delivery system for the renovation of a physician’s private office space to accommodate MRI equipment and a “clean room” for lab analysis. Structural plans failed to account for the load presented by the MRI equipment, resulting in overstress of floor joints and deflection of walls on lower floors. “Clean Room” was not functional, as the HVAC system was undersized and generated negative air pressure. Owner claim against design team for remediation costs and lost profits due to inability to perform MRI/lab tests exceeded available design professional insurance.
