Michigan Covid-19 Projects
Michigan- 1,000 beds, 656 required Oxygen
BeaconMedaes was asked to provide the equipment for an oxygen system being installed in a convocation center in Detroit, MI to aid in the treatment of COVID 19. The project was conducted by the Army Corp of Engineers and had a 10 day timeline from start to the first patient being admitted. The facility has approximately 1,000 beds of which 656 of them required oxygen. The main lines (3” & 2.5”) were suspended from the catwalk and a line was dropped to each patient bed. The bulk O2 system and all of the pipeline which included outlets, valves and alarms were delivered and installed to allow the timeline to be met. Patients are currently being seen at the facility.
Michigan- 90 Bed ICU
A hospital in the greater Detroit area has installed a 90 bed Covid ICU. The floor was currently under construction when the COVID pandemic hit the Michigan area. The facility halted construction and immediately switched gears to create a 90 bed ICU, each bed consisting of O2, Air, & Vacuum. The facility had a 10 day time construction schedule. The contractor partnered with Beacon who was able to provide all of the outlets, alarm panel and zone valve box within 3 days of getting the green light. The contractor had 12 – 18 plumbers on the project for 6-7 days to complete all of the water, sanitary and medical gas piping. The floor was completed in 10 days and fully operational.
