Redundancy is a vital aspect to consider when evaluating system infrastructure on a medical campus with critical care facilities. A detailed phasing plan and sequence of operations can be key to a successful project. In this presentation, we’ll examine the importance of these factors through a recently completed central emergency power plant (CEPP) project on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU).
