Health Care is amongst the most important services provided to the public, and these services are delivered in some of the most complex buildings designed. Constant advances in medicine and technology necessitate continual evolution of Health Care facility capabilities. Principles of infection control, systems reliability, life safety, and facility sustainability are also continuously advancing. New facility design can accommodate the latest advancements in Health Care, but in most cases existing facilities need to be renovated to accommodate these advancements. Early planning to identify project risks is critical in the development of renovation or upgrade projects. Strong knowledge of applicable Codes and Standards can identify roadblocks to implementing facility upgrades. We strive to maintain our knowledge through continual professional development.
