In the current political climate of constantly shifting national healthcare policy, healthcare architects and their clients are facing new challenges when it comes to long-term planning. Former EYP Healthcare Sector Leader David Watkins recently authored the article, “The Future of Healthcare Architecture: Obstacles and Opportunities Abound,” for Building Design + Construction, exploring these challenges, along with strategies and opportunities for architects to make meaningful recommendations to provide long term value to their healthcare clients and the communities they serve.

Environmental Graphic Design (EGD) reinforces the “Well Building” concept that has become central to so many building designs. EGD is also an excellent way to extend the conversation of the sustainability of buildings to elements we all need to live and flourish within the built environment. Through strategic EGD installations, we can encourage people to make healthy choices throughout their day while simultaneously helping clients subtly promote wellness.  More

While we currently operate largely within the 3rd generation of BIM, we increasingly see owner requirements that suggest the next generation of BIM is fast approaching. In the 4th generation of BIM – BI(m) – the information contained in the model becomes more important than the 3D model element itself. One of the more concrete examples of BI(m) is the COBie (Construction to Operation Building Information Exchange) requirement, where design and construction-phase information is transferred to an owner for the operation of the building. Instead of creating a mountain of paper, all the information on equipment within the BIM model – color, model, manufacturer, links to PDFs on the component - is extracted into a spreadsheet format so that owners can easily access information for the future maintenance and operation of building equipment. In this newest generation of BI(m), the owner is able to benefit from the information in the model without actually having to deal with the model itself. More
