During a   design-assist project, our team had an added responsibility of working with a design team, county plan reviewers, and inspectors to modify the complex mechanical system. Keeping code compliant was especially challenging when it came to the below grade plumbing work. 

Our first challenge on a recent healthcare facility project was completing field coordination for the 1st three levels of the building. Secondly, the building provided several design changes required to accommodate existing conditions.
