September Design Lecture

sept chap flyer

Presented by the Committee on Design. Part of the [Re]Visiting the House series.

The lecture, titled "What do You See?", explores both the customization and conversely the commoditization of the house and how these two contradicting trends are simultaneously shaping their current body of work. Residential clients, which include both private homeowners & multi-family developers, are often seeking ambitious proposals on highly constrained urban infill sites located within economically and culturally diverse neighborhoods. These sites, and the municipal and community organizations that oversee them, often serve as a point of departure for the firm to explore the latent potential within each project. Thus, their process renders unexpected results driven by a variety of unseen socioeconomic forces, regardless of whether the client's demands are highly personal or market-driven.

Presented by Healthcare Committee

A New Class Act: The 2018 Guidelines and Major Revisions to Imaging, Procedure, and Operating Rooms

Join AIA Columbus and the Healthcare Committee at the June Design Lecture! This presentation will review major revisions in the 2018 FGI Guidelines for hospitals and outpatient facilities, focusing on the sections that address operating, procedure, and imaging rooms.

The 2018 Health Guidelines Revision Committee (HGRC) made a concerted effort to align the definition and application of requirements for the various room-types where procedures take place. This alignment is based on the level of invasiveness of the procedure and the perceived level of risk to the patient. The HGRC also created a classification system for imaging that gives basic imaging room requirements, with additional details for specific modalities, so imaging room design can more easily adapt to new technologies.

Finally, the Guidelines has added multi-layered clearances to the space requirements for procedure and operating rooms, and the appendix includes expanded guidance on determining OR size and layout, including a list of equipment often used in operating rooms.

Presented by TAP Committee

Drone and Lidar use advance data gathering similar to when the calculator replaced the slide rule. The math was the samethe results much more efficient. Learn how Heapy Engineering and Woolpert are impacting the AEC Industry through advanced aerial imagery programs. Upwards of 85% of buildings standing in 2030 already exist today. Therefore, to meet future energy standards (ie: the carbon-neutral goal of the 2030 Challenge), we need to wage a massive campaign to upgrade our current building stock. Drones and Lidar are powerful tools to enhance energy efficiencies and identify which buildings to prioritize.
