Sustainable & Resilient Healthcare Infrastructure: Valuing our Assets



Infrastructure is typically considered in a utilities context, but the MEP systems that support the organization can be equally critical. And, just like utilities, these systems must adapt to changing occupant needs. By better understanding the capabilities of existing equipment, facilities can better control their systems, reduce operating costs, and ultimately identify low-cost improvements that support sustainability and resiliency. This session highlights three healthcare projects--upgrades in an existing building with major deferred maintenance, a chiller plant optimization initiative and the implementation and results of a resilience evaluation—that focused on improving the sustainability and resiliency of existing facility infrastructure, from triage through optimization.


Learning Objectives:
1. Assess facility impacts from pressures to increase space utilization, add more features and equipment, and increase energy efficiency
2. Understand how to create a resilience strategy for existing buildings with a Master Plan for maintenance
3. Learn how to take raw data from HVAC systems to optimize energy performance, without tedious analysis
4. Discuss the benefits of resilience planning as part of capital projects
