Kirsten Waltz, AIA, ACHA, EDAC, LEED AP
President U.S. Operations, Steffian Bradley Architects

Itís not often that design teams have the chance to reevaluate and improve a design and the way that design is delivered in a controlled environment, but thatís exactly what Baystate Health, Steffian Bradley, and Suffolk Construction were able to do with the 641,000SF addition at the Medical Centerís Main Campus in Springfield, MA. Delivered in three phases, the design team researched the success of earlier phases utilizing post-occupancy evaluations, enabling them to improve the design of the units that followed. The phases also saw an evolution of project delivery methods, from traditional CM on earlier phases to phase three, an interior fit-out of four shell floors into inpatient beds and pharmacy, delivered using Integrated Project Delivery. The development of methods has resulted in increased safety, and allowed Baystate to save millions. Attendees will hear from the owner, architect, and contractor about the successful usage of evidenced-based design and assess lessons learned.

1: Explain the value of post-occupancy evaluations for patient and staff safety and satisfaction.
2: Discover best practices for creating and administering post-occupancy evaluations.
3: Assess lessons learned through a multi-phase project utilizing different delivery methods and how future projects will be addressed.
4: State the importance of the post-occupancy evaluation process as it relates to the development of evidence based design.
