LT2 Speech Privacy and Sound Masking in Modern Healthcare
Tuesday, April 1 12:30 PM -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 1:00PM - 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 1:30PM - 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.
