In the healthcare design response to COVID-19, one of the biggest hurdles to clear is delivering fast, effective building systems and infrastructure. As we see the industry roll out solutions like temporary structures and field hospitals, retrofit existing hospital space to negative pressure rooms, and convert alternate sites like convention centers to house COVID patients, innovative solutions to MEP, HVAC, and other critical systems are necessary.
To help guide the industry through this process, Healthcare Design magazine will bring together a panel of healthcare engineers to share an inside look at what their organizations are delivering right now, including case study examples. Join the conversation in the webinar “Understanding and Solving COVID-19 Healthcare Building Systems Challenges” at 4 p.m. EDT/1 p.m. PDT on Wednesday, May 6.
The experts will explore best practices that have emerged from their efforts and offer insight on how the industry should approach building systems going forward to be better prepared for the next COVID-19 surge or a future pandemic.
The panel includes:
• Jeff Hankin, PE, senior principal, buildings, health sector engineering lead U.S., Stantec
• Michael Sheerin, PE, LEED AP, chief executive officer, TLC Engineering Solutions
• Scott T. Fote, PE, LEED AP, senior vice president, RLF
• Jennifer Kovacs Silvis, editor-in-chief, Healthcare Design (moderator)
