Legionella Prevention VA Hudson Valley Healthcare System - Castle Point, NY

This project requires detailed field site work to physically identify all the dead legs as defined by the VA. The work includes opening ceiling tiles and accessing panels in order to inspect and measure the distribution pipes to determine which lines fall within the dead leg definition. The VA defines a dead leg as a length of pipe with one end open to the system and the other end terminating at a cap, closed valve or fitting, or a plumbing fixture.

NEI provides services which include various phases of design - site survey, design analysis, drawings and construction specifications. Project phasing will provide a minimum interruption to the medical Centers normal activity. Risk assessments including asbestos, lead base paint and environmental controls are provided by NEI's team.

Legionella Prevention Northport VAMC - Northport, NY

This project is a field study to identify the dead legs on the potable water distribution lines at the Northport, New York VAMC. Per VHA Directive 1061, dead legs are generally defined as pipe lengths greater than two times the pipe diameter terminating at a cap/closed valve/fitting. This was a multi-phase project that required NEI to access each floor, room, corridor, and area in 16 buildings totaling 997,000 sf. This project design had a 320 day completion schedule and required extensive phasing to minimize operational disruptions.
