(Duration 59:41)

  • Save to my AU Saved



In August 2015, Arkansas Children's, Inc. announced plans to build a freestanding children's hospital in Springdale, Arkansas. The new building, Arkansas Children's Northwest, will include 235,000 square feet of inpatient beds, emergency care, diagnostic services and clinical space. The hospital's construction and facilities team assembled a detailed set of data specifications to streamline the handover of the building and jumpstart operations & maintenance. The goal was to have all equipment data populated in the CMMS (maintenance management system) by substantial completion in the fall of 2017, to allow for critical maintenance processes to be in place prior to completion. To realize that vision, TME led an initiative to drive the successful transition and handover of asset data before the end of the project. This presentation walks through the planning, design, and construction phases of the project as well as the beginning of operations.
