Repurpose & Renewal of an Aging Healthcare Facility
About this session:
Health-care facility managers are confronted by an increasing inventory of aging building stock and face the difficult decision of whether to remove these buildings and build new, repurpose, or relocate operations. This presentation documents the complete renovation of a 70's era critical care building while maintaining hospital operations throughout the construction phase. The highlight is an innovative approach that developed a high-performance, hybrid envelope system that results in a modern hospital design aesthetic that is energy efficient, sustainable, and improves building resiliency.
1. Be able to better assess the financial implications related to repurposing existing infrastructure to achieve a cost effective methodology for addressing aging buildings.
2. Appreciate the role that analysis and CAD technology plays in assessing, coordinating, and implementing design strategies for repurposing existing infrastructure.
3. Examine the impact of design decisions on constructability related to cladding materials, fenestration, roofing and insulation of a new building envelope on existing building structure.
4. Understand the complexities and challenges of repurposing an existing hospital building on a densely urban site while maintaining facility operations
