Mitigating Operational Risk in Life Sciences and Hospital HVAC SystemsApril 15, 2017
When does it make sense to bring in Trumbull Campbell Associates to discuss a potential project?
We believe it makes sense to bring us in at a very early stage in the process. In our experience, HVAC decisions made too late in the design-development process can be subject to unintended limitations forced by footprint considerations, incorrect load assumptions, or even the manufacturers’ scheduling constraints. Many of our clients call us at the initial budget and schematic phase, where we are able to identify multiple ways to save on costs and help “value-engineer” the project.
What do you need to know before you can project an accurate project quotation?
The following basic information helps us provide correct estimates and specifications for the HVAC equipment we represent:
- How the building will be used, both currently and in the future
- Budget and schedule constraints
- What applications are needed from the equipment, such as precise air filtration for certain types of laboratories
- The location of the project (air temperature, freight access, available power supply)
- Owner expectations for lifecycle costs
- Need for precise operating controls
