Healthcare design represents one of the biggest challenges for consulting engineers. Medical Facilities often contain a diverse mix of specialties, services and programs including patient care, education, research and community outreach. Medical Facilities today include preventative care practices, medical office buildings, ambulatory surgery centers as well as full facility hospitals. Each type of facility is unique. This blend of functions are the most challenging facilities to design. Further, the engineered systems in these facilities require complex mechanical, electrical, piping/plumbing and information technology systems. Healthcare facilities have specialty equipment and space needs with very unique requirements. PET imaging, NMRs, MRIs, electron microscopy and BSL labs often require specific engineered systems that support their safe use now and allow for future flexibility as technology evolves.
