LeChase Opens New Center To Train Workers to Contain Noise and Dust in Healthcare, Lab Projects

In what is believed to be one of the first facilities of its kind in Westchester County developed by a private company, BCW Member LeChase Construction Services celebrated the opening on Friday of a new training center that will be used to teach best practices for containing noise, dust and contaminants during construction projects in hospitals, pharmaceutical research companies and other critical facilities.

Located at LeChase’s New York Metro office in Armonk, the new infection control risk assessment (ICRA) training center will be used as a resource organization-wide to ensure the firm’s employees and subcontractors stay at the forefront of the emerging and established health and safety protocols.

The mix of classroom and hands-on training in containment barriers, negative air pressure, HEPA filtration and good housekeeping techniques will reduce the risk of cross contamination and provide a safe environment for patients, staff and others while nearby renovations occur.

“As LeChase continues to grow its client base in the healthcare and pharmaceutical industries, this new ICRA training center will provide a critical skill for LeChase employees and for our subcontractors,” said LeChase Vice President David Campbell. Campbell made his remarks during an event introducing the center to customers, the media and other stakeholders. “With our center, we will train workers to properly use the systems and exercise the care needed to ensure our work does not disturb hospital patients and visitors, and researchers at pharmaceutical companies.”

LeChase, a leading national firm specializing in healthcare, life sciences, education and commercial construction, was among the first firms in Westchester County to invest in the technology and offer it to customers seeking superior infection control, enhanced safety and noise reduction during construction. “LeChase has already applied this system and technique successfully on important projects at several healthcare centers,” Campbell said. “Our core value is to do the right thing; this fuels our passion to create safe work environments and to deliver excellence for our clients.”
