NYC Test & Trace Corps Partners With Acuity International to Expand Testing Access

More Than 20,000 Tests Administered in Less than a Week

Through the partnership of Acuity International and NYC Health + Hospitals, more than 500 healthcare professionals have been deployed to stand up 60 COVID-19 testing sites in locations across all five boroughs of New York City. Each site is testing an average of 400 people a day.

Acuity International is a leading provider of process and technology-based critical services to global government and commercial enterprises. NYC Health + Hospitals is the nation’s largest public hospital system. NYC Test & Trace Corps is an interagency effort led by NYC Health + Hospitals and NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene to ensure New Yorkers have no-charge, no-barrier testing access. The partnership was formed to surge COVID-19 testing teams across New York City in direct response to the Omicron wave.

During New York City’s efforts to rapidly respond to the global COVID-19 pandemic, Acuity and NYC Health + Hospitals have worked side-by-side to provide emergency healthcare support to New Yorkers. “The working relationship and great esprit de corps that we have built together over the last year and a half have enabled our two organizations to effectively deliver excellent health support during this historic and challenging time,” said James Hill, Acuity project manager.

“Acuity has deep expertise supporting large, complex projects that need to be deployed quickly and is proud to bring this expertise to bear in New York City again as it works to give access to testing to all of its citizens,” said David Franco, Acuity assistant project manager. This is Acuity’s fourth support mission in New York. In early 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak, Acuity deployed 500 medical personnel and established within a week a temporary 450-bed medical facility on the grounds of the U.S. Tennis Open at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens.

“Our growing relationship with NYC Health + Hospitals is a testament to our ability to be agile and draw on our significant logistics expertise, information technology prowess, and medical know-how as we’ve helped them meet the challenges of a dynamic pandemic that has required a nimble response,” added Megan Riedy, Acuity’s chief nurse on this project. “We are also drawing on the operational know-how and solid relationships in each of the boroughs that we have developed over the last 24 months.”

COVID-19 testing is offered as a walk-in service with no appointment needed. Sites open daily at 9 AM. NYC Health + Hospitals has a COVID Hotline, 1-212-COVID19, and a full list of testing sites is available online at: https://www.nychealthandhospitals.org/covid- 19-testing-sites/.

PT&C Releases the First Collaborative Cloud-Based Cost Estimating Solution With Native MII Interoperability

With the rapid rise in cloud computing, the Project Time & Cost (PT&C) team, based in Acuity’s Center of Excellence for Construction Engineering, has rolled out a significant update for their cost engineering cloud suite. This is a milestone release of robust features that include Geographic Cost Index (GCI), accelerated database updates, and native MII interoperability.

The growing PT&C team has provided professional services and technology solutions for commercial and federal agencies for nearly 40 years. While their history focuses on consultancy, this release of PT&C CostCenter software and construction cost data will revolutionize the estimating space.

“Cost estimation is both an art and science,” said Frank Richardson, Senior Cost Estimator. “You need reliable cost data and the ability to make immediate adjustments to accommodate unpredictable environments. We’re setting a new standard with the transparency of our cost data by showing you the source of our data and when it was updated.”

The team that supported major parts of the Tri-Service Automated Cost Engineering System (TRACES), including MII and Area Cost Factors, aims to provide engineers and managers an innovative cloud solution with their newest features.

Architecture, Engineering, and Construction (AEC) teams can leverage the various applications within PT&C CostCenter to ensure they have access to up-to-date information for accurate detailed estimates. Along with construction cost estimation functionalities, seamless USACE/TRACES MII interoperability allows agencies to gain maximum value from their investments. AEC teams, regardless of their physical location, no longer need to worry about MII file versioning and the time required for rework. With PT&C CostCenter, users get a single source of truth to keep projects organized, a view of progress, insights on key financial indicators, and have real-time collaboration for accelerated productivity.

“To empower estimators, our responsibility as engineers and cost experts is to keep our cost database current,” explained Andy Reape, VP of Engineering & Consulting. “For us, it is also essential to provide users a tool where they’re not bound to a single device and can develop complex estimates with teammates spread across the world.”

In this release, PT&C is rolling out an industry-leading white-glove pilot program, a tailored onboarding experience offering users a dedicated success representative, priority support, and a direct line of feedback on product roadmaps. This is an open pilot program that comes with training benefits at no cost and grants users firsthand experience with the newest improvements.

PT&C has delivered solutions within the engineering field for decades and their recent expansion is indicative of the advancements in construction technology. AEC firms that assess their technology stack today, and implement specialized tools sooner, will find it easier to remain competitive. A peek at the larger roadmap within the PT&C CostCenter tools includes exciting capabilities such as assemblies, parametric modeling, and even advanced analytics backed by artificial intelligence.
