Success Story: General Contractor for Healthcare Industry Specializing in Commercial Construction
It takes more than just luck to be known as one of the best general contractor for healthcare industry in Southern California. The commercial construction industry is competitive and price-sensitive, but clients also demand quick schedules, minimal change orders and top quality for their projects. There is another requirement for a general contractor for healthcare space; HIPAA compliance. The Health Care Insurance Portability and Accountability Act sets the standards for protecting sensitive data and any company that deals with healthcare data or networks must provide and follow certain security measures. Not only does data need to be safeguarded, but so does office space and the potential of breaking privacy by having someone overhear sensitive client information.
According to Building Design + Construction, a general contractor for healthcare construction must design and construct reasonable safeguards when building out or upgrading space, such as:
- Sound-absorbing ceiling panels
- Blocking sound by constructing walls, panels, doors and partitions
- Covering up sound with sound-masking systems
- Privacy partitions
