Patient Privacy & Tranquility: Creating Optimal Healing Environments

01:10 PM - 02:10 PM

Patient privacy and tranquility are top priorities for healthcare facilities to reduce stress and promote healing. Recent studies have shown that excessive noise, glare, and lack of privacy can create stress in patients of all ages, which significantly impedes the healing process. More and more healthcare design professionals are specifying design elements that promote privacy and tranquility – all while underscoring hygiene. These trends include:

• A desire to better manage privacy with easily adjustable vision control options in patient rooms, nurses’ stations, surgical areas etc.

• A desire to better manage or filter light from external sources (for both interior and exterior windows) to reduce glare and optimize thermal efficiencies.

• A move toward improved air quality and away from curtains and blinds that collect dust, are not hygienic and require regular cleaning/maintenance.

• A desire to better attenuate sound for optimal tranquility.

This course will review options for privacy, lighting and sound control, and will further detail recent case studies from several leading healthcare facilities. It will also illustrate how good design can dampen noise and create a healing environment that is less stressful and more restful for patients.

Vinyl in Design: The Material for21st Century Building & Construction

02:10 PM - 03:10 PM

Vinyl plays a major role in the design and construction of modern buildings. It contributes to sustainability, wellness and resilience of people and their communities.
This session will demonstrate the importance of achieving client performance goals using thoughtful, multi-attribute material selection criteria.
Learning Objectives:
1. How vinyl is made, most versatile plastic in construction
2. Three parts of sustainability, how resilience enables people and communities to bounce back
3. Understanding disclosure and optimization, selection criteria, hazard, exposure, risk
4. Role of materials in health and wellness
5. Industry improvements, best practice, aspirations for a sustainable future

LEED Pilot Credit #103: Integrative Analysis of Building Materials

03:30 PM - 04:30 PM

In the materials selection process, builders seek to balance numerous product performance attributes, including durability, aesthetics and health, safety and environmental impacts. Transparency and life cycle thinking are central components of a robust materials selection process, one that enables builders to choose the most appropriate materials for their project. The U.S. Green Building Council now offers an innovative LEED pilot credit (#103), Integrative Analysis of Building Materials, to encourage building project teams to evaluate products and materials using available life cycle information to identify those that have positive environmental, health and safety impacts. The credit informs project team decisions by providing access to information shared by building materials manufacturers on their product’s life cycle impacts.

Eliminating Concrete Moisture through Sustainable Design

04:30 PM - 05:30 PM

Few aspects of the design process are conducted in “silos” as disassociated from one another as how many projects approach interior concrete slab specifications and subsequent flooring specification sections. This is not done intentionally, rather it is by-product of lack of coordination, and fundamental misunderstanding, between those involved with the structural elements and those involved with the aesthetic and finishing elements. During this presentation, we will discuss sustainability and what it means; drawing the attendee into a clear discussion of how sustainability relates to LEED, Lean Construction, Green Building, and process improvement. Inconsistencies with current specification processes related to concrete moisture as compared to the tenets of sustainability will be exposed, with clear recommendations given as to how the specifying professional can resolve those disconnects.
