Optimizing Healthcare Construction, Operations With BIM

Building Information Modeling is an integral part of providing construction services for healthcare facilities. Whether during design, estimating or construction, the process lends itself to building virtually by demonstrating its true value. Whether saving labor through improved fabrication techniques, reducing risk by engineering a hazard out of the equation or operating a building more efficiently with a data-rich model — the use of BIM should always be where it makes the most sense. To do so requires an equal amount of commitment and coordination from clients, design teams and subcontractors. Read More …

Striking a Balance: Meeting present needs, future demands with preparation during design and construction

Begin with the end in mind, as recommended by Stephen R. Covey in his book on personal development, “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.” This concept also applies to the capital facility planning process. Aligning the guiding principles of design with the implementation of construction and the long-term effectiveness of operations will produce a highly effective facility. By defining the broad parameters and measurable metrics for success at the inception of the project, the owner can better control the end product.  Read More …
