Knowing the most relevant mechanical, electrical and plumbing (MEP) questions to ask on day one of a project can avoid pitfalls according to a blog in a Healthcare Facilities Symposium newsletter. Dean Shellenberger, PE, offers a MEP checklist of questions, including.
1.“Does the team of healthcare design professionals truly have the right type of experience?”
2.“What are the MEP systems features that most impact hospital operations?”
3. “Do the proposed shaft sizes and locations work for the MEP, while still maintaining architectural space program?”
4. “Is it possible for your facility staff to be regularly engaged in the project?”
5. “What are your parameters for showing how sufficient access is available?”
