Q1 2022 Newsletter

The way we design and build healthcare facilities has increasingly changed over the last decade through evidence-based design, and this shift has only accelerated in our post-pandemic world. In a recent report, a Task Force from the American College of Health Architects (ACHA) sought to address this rapid change, broadening its focus on health over a wide range of building types to better understand how hospitals can better treat the “whole” person.

Q4 2021 Newsletter

The last two years have brought a great deal of disruption to the construction industry at a time when we’re already seeing great change and innovation. Further investment in technology such as BIM, AR/VR, and modularization are met by volatile material costs and supply chain issues resulting in schedule challenges. Disruption, however, can often bring meaningful change. And from our perspective, the increase demand for coordination among owner, design team, and contractor early in the process has made our approach to construction delivery on all projects even more critical to their success.
