Infinite Consulting Corp. (Infinite) provided site safety management and prepared and expedited the site safety plan for the new School of Nursing, a seven-story, 68,000-square-foot building that anchors the east end of Columbia University Medical Center. Infinite was responsible for overseeing multiple contractors with varying scopes. Infinite personnel conducted daily site walks, enforcing the health and safety programs of the contractors and the owners as well as the construction management firm.
The school provides a new space for research, a sunlit atrium, and a two-floor medical simulation center. The simulation center will include model healthcare settings like a mock in-patient room, exam room, critical care unit, and operating room. Three clinical teaching labs will have six beds and 14 exam tables where students can practice their skills on lifelike mannequins. The building will also have a café, rooftop terrace, and event space. The new building will create an environment that inspires instructional excellence, interactive learning, collaborative research, and clinical distinction.”
