HGA Wins EBD Touchstone Award for Advancement of Evidence-Based Design Process

HGA Architects and Engineers has won a Silver Level Evidence-Based Design Touchstone Award for its research-based planning approach of a medical-surgical unit at Froedtert & The Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Presented by the Center for Health Design, the inaugural EBD Touchstone Awards recognize outstanding achievement across three touchstones of EBD process: collaboration, evaluation and sharing.

The data-rich award submission detailed pre- and post-occupancy research methods used to plan the medical-surgical unit, in which the design team combined Dr. John Kotter’s eight-step change-management theory with EBD tools and Lean strategies to transition from a centralized to decentralized nursing unit to improve workflow and patient care.
