ACI designed and constructed pre-manufactured piping, electrical, and wood blocking in a panelized wall system, which was then transported to the site and installed in the patient rooms. Other pre-fabricated efforts on the project included skids and piping for the boiler and chiller plant that were shop-fabricated and shipped fully assembled to the site.

What would normally take months, took only days in the field.
