Sustainable and wellness strategy implementation in complex health care environments comes with inherent challenges. This session will focus on staff and patient wellness as well as owner and collaborator integration with Green Globes, the green building standard and rating system developed by the Green Building Initiative. A case study of the new UF Health Heart Vascular and Neuromedicine Hospitals will also be presented as an example of innovative thought leadership toward sustainability and improving the human experience.
1.) Identify the challenges and strategies associated with balancing the implementation of sustainability and wellness measures on a highly complex health care project.
2.) Assess innovative collaboration models between the owner and utility as well as the owner and design/delivery teams.
3.) Evaluate the tools that can inform design decisions aimed at balancing environmental impact, occupant wellness, and clinical purpose.
