    I know this is not boating related but it pays for my boating! I just wanted to share some shots of the major project I have been on for over 4 years. I managed the design process and now the buildout of this public hospital in the middle of a residential neighborhood in Oakland. Plenty of gunshot victims and crack babies here!

    Interesting. In 2009 I assisted with the moving of patients from the old to the brand-new hospital in our city, A beautiful $200 million building.

    About a week after the move, the emergency generators fired up (not sure if it was a test or the power went out for a bit).

    Anyway the air draw from the generators created a bit of a vacuum in the room and sucked down A 30 foot section of block wall........ quite a commotion at the new hospital that day!

    Yes Jason, we went down this road once before. We use Navisworks MEP and are moving to Revit. We have a full BIM model and plot out installation drawings from the model. All equipment is identified in the model with unique identifiers which is referenced in a spreadsheet or data is embedded as a hyperlink.

    Some of the equipment these days is amazing. Nothing like when I turned screws! We have a full prefabrication shop and we order many of the bent conduits from them and simply install them onsite. Very efficient that way. We have had 2 guys pulling all of the cable made possible by the equipment we utilize!

    Thanks for sharing! I feel right at home looking at these pictures. I've spent many a hour inside hospitals and commercial buildings pulling low voltage wire. Now I'm at a MEP firm with ACAD2014 and Revit open doing the design side of it.

    Ken, This stereo project is really getting to him, he forgot he posted a response in less than a minute. LOL

    That is not nice of me to bust on Jason twice in two days but I'm mean like that when I haven't seen my boat in 4 months.

    Ken, The project looks impressive.

    Curious what is the name of the hospital? I haven't been to Oakland in years but use to do business with a few hospitals in the area.

    I am amazed at the advancements in technology. My dad was an electrician first class in the Navy and rewound motors. Not the little guys but the big boys that turn the submarine screws. When he got out he would rewind motors part time. I can't tell you how many wraps are on an armature be he could.

    It must be a real task to figure out the loads and limits on the system you are installing. Hats off to you to and your crew!

    Ken, that's an amazing project to oversee. I wouldn't even begin to know where to start on something like that....but that's why we have people with your skills.

    Cool project pics, thanx. Sure a far cry from the spec houses we were wiring back in the 60's. Are ya old enough to remember the tar paper wire? Or how 'bout knob an' tube wiring.
