Key innovation: zero defects strategy
The most challenging but possibly the most beneficial of the innovations being developed at the £95M, 571 acute bed hospital site is a zero defects strategy. This PFI scheme is on a fast programme and minimum complications at completion is the aim. A right first time approach, and clearly defined zero defects policy are being developed, with existing QA procedures being reviewed and enhanced to reflect the need to minimise snagging. Over the next 12 months expenditure on snagging and making good will be monitored in terms of man hours and cost, and compared against national and Kvaerner averages.
