OFIS' SOLUTION - OFIS provided support for site teams during each key stage when opening the new building, eliminating the risk of contamination during operations:

  • A pre-acceptance technical assessment to ensure the sanitary compliance of the hot and cold water systems;
  • Checking the balancing of the sanitary hot water recirculating loops;
  • Preparing procedures to maintain water quality;
  • Defining water sampling strategies;
  • Opening the sanitary log for the hospital;
  • Regular inspections. The sampling plan is updated based on results and corrective/curative actions are proposed where necessary;
