About the Project
The New York State Office of General Services (OGS) tasked LiRo with performing building assessments at 21 hotel properties in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Long Island, and Westchester as part of an emergency response to COVID-19. The goal of the assessments was to identify if the facilities could provide non-critical and sub-acute level hospital environments. LiRo mobilized a team of Architects, Engineers, and Construction Managers to survey the sites and deliver assessments within a two-day span in late March 2020. The LiRo team rapidly assembled information to assess compliance with criteria for patient rooms, support spaces, MEP systems, and room finishes. LiRo’s GIS team created a custom database to organize checklists, photos, and site notes for each facility as part of a comprehensive deliverable.
