Hospitals have to be build within codes for the city, and also to appease the health board where you live. Also, the fire marshal will be interested in the building too. Basically since this is a building that has a lot of things that need to be done to it or else it won’t be able to work or be paid for, you need to know what to do. Don’t think that you can leave something out because you think it’s silly, because that could get the project cancelled fast and make you lose money.
Remember that this is a place where people are going to need to go when they are ill. This means that nothing that you use in its construction should have the potential to make people sick. If you, for instance, use lead based pain on the inside or outside, it could get into the building and that could cause a lot of problems, especially if someone very sick were to get it into their system. If people were to fall ill because of how you build the building and lied about it, then you could get in deep trouble.
Check into what materials and tools you’ll need because chances are this is a very large job that a lot of money will be going into. You may be best off buying as much equipment as possible, and if you plan to do more work like this later it’s a great way to get ahead in getting what you need. It’s okay to rent something here or there, but know that if you break something you’re renting without insurance on it, you have to pay for it and might as well of bought the machinery in the first place.
Contractors and anyone else involved with the building of a hospital should be very well trained. Have a lot of time to interview people and see if they are a right match before you let them near the project. It may be that the city has you and your company working with them and they probably will have very strict hiring guidelines that you have to work with. If you’re not going to want to have to deal with the hiring process it’s always easy to get HR to do it, but make sure they know exactly what the team needs.
