This panel will be a reflective evaluation from various recent experiences in renovations and retrofits of Ambulatory Care and Outpatient Medical-Office projects set in non-traditional-healthcare building types. The panel will be comprised of one client, one mechanical/electrical engineer, one architect, and one general contractor. Each will share their top items, concerns & cautions to address at three key times – site selection, at pre-design and pre-construction.  More than just lessons learned, this panel will share insights to improve future projects and avoid unexpected surprised as more renovation projects are occurring in building types that were not originally designed to support ambulatory and outpatient building system needs. Types of non-traditional adaptive reuse building examples: Grocery Stores, Banks, strip malls, drug stores, factories, older office buildings.


1. Learn top concerns and check list items for project pre-planning, design and construction considerations.
2. Learn strategies employed when adapting to unforeseen site conditions to keep project and team on schedule.
3. Learn from different perspectives and lessons learned from past projects, what they know now, when designing and planning ambulatory spaces in non-traditional and older buildings.
4. Learn about strategies for maintaining clear communications across the team to minimize, respond, or anticipate impact of unforeseeable conditions.
