This videos has been free to view for all. This presentation will explore the challenges and opportunities to optimize hospital projects. Shifting energy codes are challenging engineers and architects with a wide array of parameters to balance like energy, cost, daylight, views, and embodied carbon. Many design teams are harnessing simulation to shape the design and details of their projects while optimizing for cost. This is critical now given than hospitals take 7-10 years to be built, todays designs should already be targeting carbon neutral operation. This 60 minute session showcases data driven workflows for full building optimization, tradeoffs, and system integrations to design high performance hospitals.
