In 2005, ISES Corporation was commissioned to conduct Facility and Elevator Condition Assessment studies of the Greenwood Leflore Hospital in Greenwood, Mississippi. ISES personnel evaluated the entire exterior envelope and site, as well as all building mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems. The ISES team also analyzed the existing condition of life safety systems, vertical transportation systems, and compliance within the building to the American Disabilities Act Accessibility Guidelines.
Based on the visual, nondestructive inspection, ISES personnel identified capital renewal needs for this facility that amount to almost $38 million over ten years. From this capital projects identification, a comprehensive long-range renewal and replacement strategy was developed for the hospital complex. Several hazardous conditions were also reported to the hospital for immediate redress.
