Mar 20, 2019 8:30am ‐ Mar 20, 2019 9:30am

Credits: None available.


This session focuses on major infrastructure components including heating systems, power, chilled water, and IT in the development of a resilient infrastructure network. The presenters discuss the pros and cons associated with flood proofing measures and share key resiliency strategies from the design and implementation process. The project’s design takes into account long-term strategic growth, increases in infrastructure resiliency , and a design process that integrates plant operations in the concept planning stages to ensure project resiliency goals are achieved.

Learning Objectives:

1.) Identify MEP infrastructure vulnerabilities.

2.) Balance programmatic need against infrastructure resiliency.

3.) Discover collaborative and integrative planning initiatives.

4.) Ensure continuity of service for continuous patient care operation.
