Foreword to Construction Management of Healthcare Projects PDF

Whether it is a home, a school, or a healthcare facility, constructing safe, resilient, sustainable, and affordable structures is paramount for creating safe communities and providing public safety.

According to McGraw-Hill Construction, the construction value of institutional facilities hovers around $100 billion annually, which is approximately 22 percent of the nation’s total building construction value.

As such, the implications of the new Affordable Care Act for the healthcare construction industry could be profound.

Accordingly, the development of healthcare facilities—from the initial concept to planning, design, construction, completion, commissioning, and maintenance—has gained critical importance in the national economy.

While healthcare projects have much in common with other building construction types, they also have many unique features.

Elements such as medical gas systems, specialized medical equipment, the safety of patients incapable of self-preservation or self-evacuation, accessibility for patients in hospital beds and wheelchairs, and the requirement that healthcare facilities remain functioning and operational during severe natural events and disasters are only some of the unique issues of healthcare projects.

In this context, the importance of state-of-the-art codes and standards becomes evident. The International Code Council (ICC), publisher of the family of International Codes,

and the American Society for Healthcare Engineering (ASHE) of the American Hospital Association have been working closely to address needed advances in code requirements and have decided to partner with McGraw-Hill Professional in support of this book.

The great value of Construction Management of Healthcare Projects is its skillful coverage of several important issues dealing with healthcare projects.

Authors Andrew Collignon, Sanjiv Gokhale, Tom Gormley, Thomas Koulouris, Terry Miller, Christopher Payne, Rusty Ross, and Rick Wood, each an expert in a specific area, have joined together to produce an invaluable source for all building construction professionals.

Codes and standards provisions of the International Building Code, NFPA, and ASHRAE related to healthcare projects are featured, along with many other relevant topics, including planning and predesign, budgeting, business planning, financing, traditional construction delivery methods,

new delivery methods and alternate approaches, challenges of additions and renovations, specialized mechanical and electrical systems, medical technology and information systems, safety and infection control during construction, commissioning, occupying the project, and the future of healthcare construction.

I strongly recommend this publication to all those involved in planning, financing, budgeting, designing, building, commissioning, and maintaining new and renovated healthcare projects.

State-of-the-art technology, efficient project management, and the effective conclusion of projects will undoubtedly result in safer buildings and in saving millions of dollars.
