Equipment Planning

You need equipment that serves your needs — and drives business — for decades to come. We’ve successfully managed more than 500 projects with an estimated construction value of $80 billion.
With projects ranging from 100,000 SF to more than 1,000,000 SF, they all started with a comprehensive needs and inventory assessment, concluded with construction phase services and commissioning and installation, and included everything in between.
FDI operates independently of equipment manufacturers so we provide impartial equipment advice. We facilitate the evaluation, selection and acquisition of appropriate technology, navigating the many available options and pinpointing exactly what will best serve them now and into the future.

Existing Inventory (Capital/Non Capital Strategic Planning)

FDI will assist you in ensuring that capital and non-capital dollars are used practically and strategically to ensure the availability of appropriate equipment for the right patient at the right time in the right place.


Budgetary Analysis

By continually updating equipment and pricing in our database, we know when changes to equipment mean changes to your budget. We review changes with you on a timely basis and make recommendations for managing these changes to stay within your budget. We believe there should be no surprises when it comes to your equipment costs.

Equipment Evaluation & Selection

FDI equipment planning staff provides knowledgeable, proactive information to incorporate new equipment technologies into the design of your project. We determine the precise equipment you need based on the modalities needed by the facility. We thoroughly research technical data and specifications and communicate information to the design team in a timely manner.

Equipment Layout

We produce equipment diagrams which are shared with the architect to be incorporated into the design documents. Our expertise and past experience guarantees that we know the best placement of equipment to ensure optimal functionality.
