ASHE 54th Annual Conference & Technical Exhibition

WED14 - Master Planning the Entire Building—An Integrated Architectural and Engineering Approach

Aug 9, 2017 11:20am ‐ Aug 9, 2017 12:20pm

Credits: None available.

Standard: $30.00
Members: $15.00


A master plan cannot thrive on architecture alone. A complete facility planning effort cannot consist of only programmed architectural spaces, and the building cannot function without engineering systems. Through case studies, the engineering and architectural team show how integrating engineering efforts into a master plan effort will result in a better utilized space and design. Attendees will leave armed with a process checklist and tools to understand and explain the importance of including engineering in a master plan design effort.

Learning Objectives:

  • Determine options for engineering systems to complement architectural program needs
  • Evaluate facility needs for new, modified, or upgraded engineering systems and planning
  • Identify opportunities to incorporate engineering master planning efforts
  • Engage all stake holders of a facility to actively participate in master planning


  • Dennis Vonasek, AIA, NCARB, ACHA, CID, Architect/Healthcare Principal, HGA Architects and Engineers
  • Jeff Harris, PE, Director of Engineering, HGA Architects and Engineers
  • Krista McDonald Biason, P.E., Electrical Engineer, HGA Architects and Engineers
