Premier Engineering For Healthcare Design
The team at Fitzemeyer & Tocci Associates, Inc. understands that different specialized buildings require a special kind of design. Not only do buildings have certain internal features that must be included, but they must be able to function differently from conventional buildings. One of the best examples of this is healthcare design. Hospitals and medical facilities require a special design to make sure the people and patients within the building are functional and comfortable throughout the day and night. Healthcare design has several added features that must be considered before constructing a new building, or revamping an existing facility. Ventilation and plumbing are the utmost important in healthcare design, ensuring that germs, dust, and allergens are properly moved and vented away from the facility. Further, electrical power is essential in healthcare design. So many delicate machines, that are often necessary to keep people alive, must be functioning without fail. Emergency power generators must be reliable in healthcare facilities because it can make the difference between life and death.
Aside from the patients in the medical facility, the facility design must also be easy to use and function within for visitors and employees. A facility design must be comfortable and easy to navigate, meaning that visitors and employees must be free to move about the space. The purpose of any facility design is to be able to improve the quality of interaction between the building and the people. A perfect facility design will not only be easy to navigate, but will also be energy efficient. Lighting, plumbing, heating and cooling needs should all be considered in a facility design. The team at Fitzemeyer & Tocci Associates, Inc. specializes in facility design for the healthcare industry. They understand the delicate nature associated with healthcare and pay attention to every necessary detail, ensuring a functional, comfortable, and efficient space. The team is happy to build a new facility , or help revamp an existing structure to improve efficiency and functionality.
The healthcare industry in particular has several codes and regulations that must be adhered to in order to have a compliant building. These codes are for the safety of both the patients, and the employees and visitors working and moving throughout the building. Often, codes can be technical, making them difficult to understand. The team at Fitzemeyer & Tocci Associates, Inc. offers code consulting to help make sure your facility is meeting the necessary requirements. Code consulting is the perfect way to allow a professional to examine the current structure and ensure that the building is meeting the required standards. By having code consulting completed early in the construction process, you can save valuable time and money by ensuring the building is completed correctly the first time.
