Safety Week 2024 – Project Highlight: Maimonides Medical Center

Developing a logistics plan for construction around a hospital in New York City involves meticulous planning to minimize disruptions to hospital operations and the surrounding community. At MMC, challenges include phased work affecting different departments, deep excavations, and building over existing operational areas. Coordinating with city agencies, hospital management, community engagement and detailed planning for traffic management are vital and challenging aspects.

Barr & Barr’s approach encompasses comprehensive logistics planning tailored to MMC’s needs.  This includes assessing impacts on the community and hospital operations while establishing clear routes of access without disruption of the constant flow and activities around the hospital and community. Measures such as traffic management, noise mitigation, and emergency preparedness are prioritized.  Regular monitoring and evaluation ensure adjustments are made promptly to minimize disruptions.

Safety measures implemented by the Barr & Barr team include daily pre-shift meetings, inspections of access zones and equipment, thorough risk assessments, and regular safety audits. The safety efforts of the Barr & Barr team ensure a seamless integration of construction activities while prioritizing safety and the community surrounding the MMC Modernization project. Barr & Barr remains committed to building safely today to achieve the dreams of tomorrow.
