Construction in the healthcare industry in Houston is growing due to steady population increases and technology changes. Houston area engineering and architectural firms generally hire subcontractors to design medical communication designs to include hospital related fire alarm systems, nurse call systems, code blue systems, and medical gas controls. This practice is often inefficient because the work from the subcontractors do not always coordinate with engineering resulting in construction change orders and added costs. A limited number of local engineers in Houston successfully design medical communications with their plans. Thus, this project proposes an engineering firm that specializes in these services.
