As a building type, the nursing home falls under the jurisdiction of the Guidelines for Design and Construction of Residential Health, Care, and Support Facilities (FGI 2014), but nursing homes have different applicable standards. This forum will review the applicable codes, explore case studies, and discuss improvements to the codes that regulate the design for nursing homes or skilled care units.

Learning Objectives:

  • Acquaint attendees with the code and design implementation strategies for different regions of the country.
  • Familiarize participants with code and licensing requirements.
  • Examine relevant case studies to determine common code characteristics of nursing homes.
  • Illustrate the tools needed to create code compliant nursing homes that also match the business strategy for the client.

For over 40 years, the award-winning former ABC News’ White House correspondent’s job was to trace the president’s every step to get the stories her audiences want—and need—to hear. Get a glimpse of the lives and experience of the seven presidents she’s covered through anecdotes, documents, and off-the-record conversations. Drawing back the curtains to reveal the personalities of many members of the First Family, Compton will share poignant and candid moments that historians—and most reporters—don’t get to see. She will also share her observations about the current political landscape with the new administration and how its policy is meshing up with competing ideas on Capitol Hill.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the history, experiences, trials, and tribulations of former presidents based on fresh scholarship on historical precedents.
  • Outline the experience and dedication of a White House correspondent.
  • Compare and contrast former presidents' stances and policies to President Donald Trump.
  • Describe the relationship between the executive and legislative branches in the current political climate, based on fresh academic research and first-hand experience by the speaker.

Digitalization Drives a New Standard for Health Care Facility Design & Operations

Mar 13, 2017 9:45am ‐ Mar 13, 2017 10:45am

Identification: 1500

Credits: None available.

Humber River Hospital optimized design, applied technology and innovative change processes allowing staff to spend more time with patients and deliver more accurate and faster treatment. Humber's lean, green, digital vision resulted in the first fully digital hospital in North America; however, the new hospital is focused on patient care, not technology. By integrating the latest technologies across all systems of a large, urban, academic hospital, care providers are better able to accomplish their primary task: patient care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the important role of digital technology in health care facility design.
  • Demonstrate how a fully digital hospital enhances operational efficiency by reducing costs and improving patient care.
  • Describe how automation systems address complex logistics and automate workflows.
  • Optimize design and apply technology and change processes to allow staff to spend more time with patients and to deliver more accurate, faster treatment.

Complying with Locking Arrangement Requirements of the 2012 Life Safety Code® and 2015 International Building Code

Mar 13, 2017 9:45am ‐ Mar 13, 2017 10:45am

Identification: 1463

Credits: None available.

This session will detail the requirements of the NFPA 101-2012: Life Safety Code and 2015 International Building Code for locking arrangements and the differences between the requirements contained in the two documents. The session will also discuss in detail the advantages, disadvantages, and appropriateness of the different types of locking arrangements as well as the most common design/installation mistakes associated with each type of arrangement.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the most common mistakes and pitfalls when designing and installing different types of locking arrangements.
  • Review significant locking arrangement code changes in the 2012 Life Safety Code and the 2015 International Building Code since 2000.
  • Apply the information learned in this session to current and future design projects as well as existing facilities.
  • Describe the most appropriate locking arrangement installation for different security needs.

Drawing Inside the Lines: An IPD Approach to Building Renovations

Mar 13, 2017 9:45am ‐ Mar 13, 2017 10:45am

Identification: 1590

Credits: None available.

In this session, the multi-discipline presenters will each provide insight into the challenges of working within the box when applying integrated project delivery to renovation projects. The presenters will also explain the environment that is driving the push toward renovations in lieu of green-field construction and additions. A case study will summarize the process used to minimize cost and maximize space utilization while underscoring the importance of a team planning process for success.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the complex and ever changing nature of the health care PDC market.
  • Establish a plan for eliminating inefficiencies and improving performance while working directly with the owner to align with present and future strategy.
  • Do more with less by converting underutilized and non-code compliant spaces into new service lines and streamlined functional areas within the same square footage.
  • Establish a team process to identify goals, challenges, and solutions from the schematic design to the final owner occupancy.

Healing People, Healing Buildings, Healing Ecosystems: Biophilic Design

Mar 13, 2017 9:45am ‐ Mar 13, 2017 10:45am

Identification: 1508

Credits: None available.

What does it mean to apply biophilic design to health care buildings? Biophilic design principles connect health care facility users to nature and create a positive, healing environment, which can reduce patient length of stay and lead to better outcomes. Biophilic design promotes positive interactions between people and nature. If nature's genius is applied correctly in designing spaces, the result will be a healing, recovery-conducive environment for all humans. This approach can also reduce the cost of health care.

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain effects of biophilic design on human health.
  • Apply biophilic design to health care and senior living facility design.
  • Implement biophilic design adapted to local climate.
  • Describe the economic benefits of implementing biophilic design in health care buildings.
