Benefits of Having Parallel Trades Coordination in the OR
As you know, operating room and imaging suite ceilings can be one of the most sophisticated and complex ceilings in the hospital. A stick-built ceiling is a linear trades coordination process where structural, mechanical, electrical and plumbing are all reliant on the previous trade to complete their work before they start. This is not just a lengthy process, but it can also be disruptive if certain deadlines are not met. The AirFRAME from SLD is pre-engineered, designed, manufactured and tested prior to arriving onsite. The complexities of a stick-built ceiling, are already complete when the AirFRAME shows up on the dock. When it's time for installation, the installation can take place in about a day or two, and other trades can be working in the room simultaneously.
