2015 PDC Summit

589 - Engineering a Flexible Health Care Facility One Building Block at a Time

Mar 17, 2015 4:10pm ‐ Mar 17, 2015 5:10pm

Members: $15.00
Standard: $30.00

Description

As health care trends ebb and flow, engineering systems must be flexible to support ever-changing program needs without sacrificing the needs of the facility or impairing the budget. Drawing from several case studies, the presenters will share fun and exciting ways MEP system designs allow a building block approach to address upfront costs and allow future flexibility.

This session will enable attendees to:

  • Evaluate proposed building programs or modifications to determine infrastructure requirements.
  • Identify priorities for expansion and modification of health care facility infrastructure.
  • Determine options for engineering a flexible and resilient system design.
  • Develop a strategy for designing and phasing the MEP infrastructure for future programming needs.

Speaker(s):

  • Krista McDonald Biason, P.E., Electrical Engineer, HGA Architects and Engineers
  • Jeff Harris, PE, LEED AP, Director of Mechanical Engineering, HGA Architects and Engineers
