Description

After opening Phase One of the 630,000 sq. ft. Hospital of the Future, Baystate Health faced a problem with which many health care providers with new construction projects are too often confronted: non-compliant life safety conditions cited in a building that recently opened. This case study explores how the facilities, design, and construction team collaborated to implement processes that significantly reduced the number of life safety issues, decreased overall project costs, and improved patient safety.

This session will enable attendees to:

  • Discuss the importance of an integrated design team from the onset of a project that includes the owner, contractor, and design team as part of the life safety implementation team.
  • State the cost benefits of integration of life safety processes early into the design.
  • Identify  holes regarding life safety in the typical design and construction process, how these issues arise, and how to develop processes to prevent them from reccurring.
  • Assess lessons learned through a multiphase project and determine how future projects will be addressed.
