Maintenance for critical infrastructure in hospitals and universities

IPS works with facilities management in hospitals and universities. We install, commission, and maintain the reliability of critical infrastructure — rotating equipment, electric motors and generators, and power management equipment.

Our single-source capabilities include vibration analysis and the installation and maintenance of NFPA 110-compliant emergency and standby power systems. We also install and maintain HVAC equipment to comply with all federal, state, and local codes.

IPS has extensive experience with mechanical and electrical contractors. These firms design, engineer, and manage the installation and commissioning of critical equipment in hospitals and universities.

Our work with these professionals allows for a seamless transition to maintaining these assets. We know the equipment, how it performs, and how to maintain it for reliability and energy efficiency.
