CRW Mechanical and W.E. Bowers Team Up to Support COVID-19 Patient Care

May 6, 2020

As the number of COVID-19 patients in Maryland has grown, so has the need for additional patient care facilities throughout the region. CRW Mechanical and W.E. Bowers, both members of the MCA of Metropolitan Washington, Inc., teamed up to meet that need by participating in the construction of several temporary patient care facilities.

The companies’ involvement began when Leonard Murphy of CRW Mechanical was contacted by the Verified Gas System on March 26. The request: produce and install essential headwalls and medical gas containers needed to supply medical gas for the temporary structures. The headwalls contribute to the use of medical air, oxygen and vacuum systems and provide power and data connections to serve patients and their caregivers.

Leonard Murphy and CRW Mechanical’s President, Rudy Ford, understood the immediate need and the strict timeline. They contacted Kenny Colburn, Executive Vice President at W.E. Bowers. With collaboration and coordination from concept to fabrication,  the teams completed the first fully functional tent structure at Fort Washington in Prince George’s County, MD by April 1.

“Our group of contractors has been working together 24/7 to meet the deadline of the project. A huge thanks to the suppliers who have helped us reach our deadline. Everyone’s really come together to make this happen. I can’t say enough great things about the work we are all doing. We’re all in this together.”

MCAA thanks CRW Mechanical and W.E. Bowers for their collaboration to better serve patients with COVID-19. We will get through this together.

NFPA 70E is the industry consensus standard for electrical safety in the workplace.

One of the provisions in the standard calls for affected employers to establish a lockout/tagout program that is specific to electrical safety. MCAA's Model Lockout/Tagout Program for Electrical Safety, which addresses work on mechanical equipment pushing 480 volts or less, was recently revised to make it consistent with NFPA 70E - 2021.…
