Senior Living & Healthcare Design: An Architect’s Perspective
August 19, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Concrete Masonry is an effective solution for the ever-changing design environment. Masonry buildings offer a wealth of health and safety benefits to the occupants, including mitigating moisture (which can lead to mold growth and degraded air quality), resiliency and the overall energy performance of the built environment. Moreover, for medical buildings and hospital structures masonry can be used to assist the patient wayfinding and create a sense of permanence within the community it’s built to serve.
In this session, Mike Jerabeck, with WJW Architects will walk through a deep-dive review of health care design and construction and discuss the use of concrete masonry products. Attendees will walk away with a better understanding of the best design practices and criteria used by architects in selecting materials and systems for health care design, as well as preventative measures used to maximize the health, safety, and wellness of its occupants.
