Equipment Issues

Requirements concerning equipment must be clearly established early in the Design Phase of the project to avoid potential confusion/complications regarding new and existing equipment. The Design Team will use equipment stickers to tag all existing equipment and identify it with a unique designation. These stickers will remain on the equipment until after the project is complete. This will allow for clear identification of equipment, even after the piece of equipment has been moved to a temporary location. A log will be developed to help identify who will be responsible for handling, storage or purchase of each piece of equipment. This will become part of the bidding documents. An equipment schedule, as part of the bid documents, will be developed indicating key requirements of all equipment. This information will be provided by the users/department. If new laboratory equipment is to be purchased as part of the project the Department or Design Team will provide the required specification to the Project Manager to be forwarded to Yale Purchasing.
