Free Sessions and Special Events

2014

C1 - Construction ICRA : Best Practices in Healthcare Construction
Tuesday, April 1 2:00-3:30 PM Waterfront I
Susan Field, Instructor, New England Carpenter Union

In response to the needs of the medical community and the contractors that serve it, the Carpenters International Training Fund developed an innovative training and qualification program that teaches carpenters how to reduce the risk of contamination while working in occupied healthcare facilities. Learn about his 24-hour training program, which delivers comprehensive skill-sets for continuing pathogens, controlling airflow, protecting patients, and productively performing work without disturbing adjacent operations.

C2 - High Performance Masonry Design, Details and Costs
Tuesday, April 1 4:00-5:30 PM Waterfront I
Richard Filloramo, Director of Market Development & Technical Services, International Masonry Institute

This program is designed to help the attendee understand the basic functions of the building envelope/enclosure and how masonry design and details can create high performance buildings. The presentation will specifically review insulation options and wall configurations and the resulting R-Values for code compliance. Thermal mass benefits will be explored. It will also cover design, detail and cost options for several masonry materials and systems, and review other building performance requirements such as security, durability, fire resistance, blast resistance, structural integrity and life cycle costs. The presentation will include "feature projects" from the New England States. 

C3Evening CSI Meeting and Presentation
The Future of Construction Specifications
 
Tuesday, April 1 6:30-8:00 PM Waterfront I
Greg Ceton, Technical Director, The Construction Specifications Institute
Mark Kalin, FAIA, FCSI, LEED, President, Kalin Associates 

It isn't hard to see the dramatic changes that have taken place in the last few years in construction information and documentation. It may surprise you to know from how many additional directions change is coming from, and what the shape of those changes may be. This presentation will examine standards and resources now in place or in development including MasterFormat, OmniClass, SPie and Data Dictionaries. We also look forward to the possible impact of BIM robots, mobile devices, and an intelligent cloud, among other things, on specifications and construction projects. You'll need this knowledge to help you make business decisions and plan for the future. 

C4 - New Construction Market Transformation
Wednesday, April 2 2:00-3:30 PM Beacon Hill II
Mark Stafford, National Grid
Tracey Beckstrom, National Grid

We will be learning how colleges, universities, and hospitals can take advantage of incentives from National Grid for energy efficiency measures they include in their new construction or major renovation projects.
Learning objectives are:
1. Understanding the programs available from the energy companies and how to apply them to their projects.
2.  Who to contact to determine the best path to maximize energy savings and financial incentives to support those measures.
3.  Understand the process of the New Construction program, when to start, how long it will take, when the incentive is paid, etc.
4.  Compensating the design team for their time working with National Grid in determining the best energy savings measures for the project.

C5Making Green Building Greener 
Key Attributes of Sustainable Building Products

Wednesday, April 2 10:00-11:00 AM Beacon Hill II
David Wilkerson, Director Of Sustainability for Shaw Industries

This CEU is designed to help specifiers of commercial interiors products better understand and identify sustainability criteria for environmentally responsible building products by investigating the four primary aspects of product sustainability across the life cycle: material health, material re-utilization, environmental impact, and social responsibility. The course also addresses the role of the specifier as an influencer by exploring the way their product choices help drive the development of new sustainable product design, innovation and environmentally responsible manufacturing practices. 
 

LT1 - Healthcare Acquired Infections
Tuesday, April 1 12:00PM-12:20 PM
Aaron Bortz, Improved Illumination

Healthcare acquired infections (HAIs) are the 4th leading cause of death in the US. Your Healthcare clients, impatient acute care hospitals, surgical centers, long-term care facilities are looking for solutions. The Arcalux HRMS, a patented 24/7 lighting system, eliminates deadly airborne pathogens to 99.8% with proven UV technology.  Learn how you can assist your clients eliminate HAIs, help lower readmission rates and avoid staggering Medicare re-imbursement penalties.

LT2 - Speech Privacy and Sound Masking in Modern Healthcare
Tuesday, April 1 12:30-12:50 PM
Robert Luckey, Field Sales Engineer, Cambridge Sound Management

This course reviews how speech privacy is achieved and what metrics are used to measure it. We review goals for acoustic privacy in healthcare and explore design options: sound masking. The implementation of sound masking is discussed and compared to other available options, along with results of sound masking deployments.

LT3 - Low Carbon Concrete
Tuesday, April 1:00-1:20 PM
Jennifer Wagner, CarbonCure Technologies

CarbonCure is leading an initiative to reduce the carbon footprint of the concrete sector by sequestering carbon dioxide into concrete. The company is working with concrete producers across North America to recycle CO2 and issue documents that disclose the environmental and health impacts of concrete - Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) and Health Product Declarations (HPDs).

LT4 - Hospital of the Future + Baystate's CAFM Solution
Tuesday, April 1 1:30-1:50 PM
Andrew Madden, AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions
Lynne Jewell, Baystate Health Center, Springfield, MA

This presentation and case study will walk through how the Facilities Planning & Engineering (FPE) department set ambitious goals to implement a "face of facilities" web portal using FM:Systems CAFM software. Partnering with AMS CAD + CAFM Solutions, the portal was developed to combine both facilities news and engineering project information integrated with a maintenance module handling on-demand employee requests. Leveraging the asset and service request modules of the software, FPE had a particular focus on important life safety equipment that involve over 2,000 key preventive maintenance (PM) tasks that can be reviewed for performance and audited as needed for the Joint Commission. Having both owned and lease space being managed in the Real Estate Portfolio module, FPE has also been able to track maintenance costs and charge back departments in leased facilities. Bringing employees the tools and information they need together, FPE has successfully implemented a best-in-class workplace information system that continues to look to grow by adding mobile iPhone/iPad solutions for maintenance as well.

LW1 - Living Up to the Promise of BIM
Wednesday, April 2 12:00-12:20 PM
Matt Mason, IMAGINiT Technologies
Peter Costanzo, Rand Facilities Management

Architects and other building designers have been working with the “Building Information Modeling” (BIM) concept for a long time. BIM has paid off for designers to be able to develop coordinated 3D models and 2D drawings. However the promise of BIM included better collaboration between disciplines as well as between designers, owners and other project stakeholders—but the reality has fallen short. Nowhere is this more acute than in the design and management of healthcare facilities. In this presentation we will look at some of the cultural, procedural and technical obstacles to get the most out of the BIM data, from design to facilities management.
