Description

After opening phase one of the 630,000-square-foot Hospital of the Future, Baystate Health faced a problem that health care providers with new construction projects are confronted with too often: 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 resulted in a significant reduction in the number of life safety issues and overall project costs and improved patient safety.

Learning Objectives:

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