The project required a disciplined approach to infection control. Constant communication with the facility’s staff, doctors and nurses was a necessity. DPR coordinated all activity with staff, working around the day-to-day needs of the patients, with their safety and comfort a driving focus.
Additionally, critically ill patients occupied adjacent floors. DPR sealed draft stops and ductwork to ensure debris from the construction area did not enter patient rooms. Negative pressure machines, tacky mats, HEPA filters and other barriers were used, as well.
