Avoiding Pitfalls of Clinic Design & Construction

David Boome AIA
System Director - Design & Construction, Norton Healthcare
Steve Wiser FAIA
Director of Healthcare Design, JRA Architects

Schedule delays, escalating costs, and increasing frustration: these are several of the pitfalls of the clinic design and construction process. Healthcare projects require hundreds of decisions and if just a few are not properly implemented, then significant problems can occur. Preparing a ‘total project budget’ and establishing a defined ‘scope of work’ are a few of the upfront steps, that if correctly implemented, can save much time, money, and stress.

This discussion will include both new construction as well as renovation projects. It will feature methodologies to mitigate and lessen the difficulties of clinic implementation. Steve Wiser, FAIA, of JRA Architects, and David Boome, AIA, of Norton Healthcare, have each built over a billion dollars and millions of square feet in healthcare construction. They will share their expertise in avoiding the numerous pitfalls in order to achieve a successful clinic project.
