Increasingly, hospitals are providing a more coordinated continuum of care, sharing medical expertise across departments to optimize the patient-centered experience. Medical Design & Construction explores how the project team's work on the new Integrated Care Pavilion helped Stamford Health achieve their goal of incorporating a clinically integrated, collaborative environment that welcomed patients and attracted physicians to their hospital campus.
Originally constructed around 1840 as a sentry post for Washington Navy Yard guards and relocated to Indian Head Naval Yard from 1909 to 2015, the 450-square foot Watch Box has a fascinating history. Home & Design shares how EYP approached moving the Watch Box back to its original Washington Navy Yard home. Aided by careful research, photographs, and clues in the existing structure, design team leader Matthew Chalifoux said, "We were trying to recreate something that was gone, to understand changes to a building over time."
A primary challenge of restoring Midcentury Modern buildings – an architectural style associated with technology and materials experimentation – is adapting these often outmoded structures to meet current and future requirements. As featured in Architectural Record, EYP Historic Preservation and Design Expert David Fixler, FAIA, explores modernizing Louis Kahn’s Richards Medical Research Laboratories at the University of Pennsylvania as an example of a successful renovation that remains true to the designer’s original architectural vision.
U.S. and Danish healthcare design teams are collaborating to test and explore design solutions that balance innovation, best practices, and cultural sensitivities. In Medical Construction & Design's "Developing a New International Healthcare Standard," EYP Health's Kyle Basilius and Sara Shumbera explore how the consortium is working toward the ultimate goal of developing a new international model and standard for healthcare facilities and patient care.
In June of 2016, at the start of a new MassChallenge Accelerator program, 12 start-ups applied for the EYP Scholarship for Design Innovation. Our goal was to identify and support start-ups who inspire creativity and problem-solving through design. More
Academic science institutions today are experiencing tough competition for funding and faculty and student recruitment. Often, facility upgrades can help leverage success in these areas. Planning for the University of New Mexico's new Physics and Astronomy Interdisciplinary Science Building (PAIS) is underway, and the Laboratory Design Newsletter recently featured the collaborative effort as part of the University's focus on the future of science and new faculty recruitment.
Savings potential for new buildings increases when energy analysis is used early in the design process. In The value of energy analysis from design day one, featured in The New England Real Estate Journal, we show how our real-time energy modeling approach can increase energy savings for new buildings by 15%.
Research demonstrates that integrating healthy practices into the workplace can help foster engagement, improve employee performance, and increase the bottom line. In The Globe and Mail article, “Have a Healthy New Year,” Leigh Stringer explores 10 healthy workplace strategies that companies can incorporate to maximize success.
Building energy use is the primary contributor to greenhouse gas emissions for colleges and universities. Benchmarking and monitoring allows institutions to identify which buildings have the greatest savings opportunities, and what technologies and changes are appropriate for those buildings. In our work with colleges and universities, we’ve identified campus wide savings potential between 18% and 56% of their current cost and carbon impacts. We have help our clients achieve these savings with proven cost effective technologies and maintain this savings over time. We have also helped our clients understand their energy use and performance and avoid costly and unnecessary audits and studies by simply tracking and comparing energy and emissions use. More
