“Be sure that you’re asking the right question... because questions that involve “better, faster, cheaper” may lead to the wrong answer”

  Walter Jones, SVP, Campus Transformation, The MetroHealth System

“The design for the new hospital is conceptually similar to a warehouse, department store, spec office building, or convention center where size, configuration and arrangement of the building’s contents are not limited by the facility”

  Tips, Tricks and Traps to Avoid – In-the-Field Experts
Air Filtration/IAQ   Roofing   Sound Masking  
Dave Blackwell, Camfil   Joseph Slattery, Tremco Roofing & Maintenance   Tom Zimmerman, Cambridge Sound Management  
Tip: “There has been a change in air filters and manufacturers are required to test filters for a MERV rating. Have the ASHRAE test report for filtration on record”   Trick of the Trade: “Assign a “roof monitor” for the building. Make sure that the roof monitor comes along with rooftop visitors and keeps a journal of all visits. There’s a better chance that problems associated with damage to the roofing system will be avoided”   Trap to Avoid: “Creating a great acoustic environment is a combination of the ABCs — Absorbing, Blocking, Covering — not the over-use of one with lack of another. Look at all three contributions before making a change to address speech privacy”

“Latest research is showing patients can benefit by using the lighting as it simulates
