Free Live Course August 16: Failure Is Not an Option: Risk Mitigation for Healthcare Facilities

  • 1.  Free Live Course August 16: Failure Is Not an Option: Risk Mitigation for Healthcare Facilities

    Posted 07-26-2023 11:00 AM

    How does the building enclosure help meet critical design needs in healthcare facilities?

    The mechanical systems used to prevent transmission of airborne diseases in healthcare facilities require a comprehensive solution for air control within the building enclosure – all six sides. This session will explore how the roof, walls, below-grade areas, and plaza decks all play a role in mitigating design risk. Learn about air movement, the potential for condensation and moisture accumulation, and how to achieve control layer continuity across the entire building enclosure.
