A sustainable hospital is also known as a “green hospital”. The concept grew considerably in the last decades in healthcare to counter the conundrum of public health vs. the environment.
However, even though the global health crisis kept disrupting on-ground operations, it by no means stopped creativity. 2021 brought the launch or development of some of the most ambitious architectural projects of our times, many of which united under the themes of sustainability, inclusion, and robust public spaces.
The new restrictions and sensitivities introduced to our societies by COVID-19 forced many architects and designers to re-think and re-imagine our built environment. The result is an accelerating number of buildings designed to minimize touch, optimize fresh air flow, and manage foot traffic more efficiently.
The information and data used in the BIM process must be managed efficiently for the desired outcomes. The solution for this challenge: A Common Data Environment (CDE).
Following a public health crisis, notorious series of cyberattacks, and the evolving nature of modern threats, people in all spheres — private, public, or commercial — have never been more invested in security.
Digitization allows individual products to be seamlessly connected, reducing complexity and minimizing the cost of installation and commissioning
Thanks to the digital innovations and solutions available, Notre Dame can enjoy a process of rebirth — which will be done better, faster, and cheaper than it was ever possible.
Over the last ten years, intelligent buildings have emerged as a crucial component of the design process. Connected and automated solutions have provided operators with greater comfort, energy efficiency, and cost savings. But the COVID-19 pandemic brought another challenge to the frontlines of the building design projects: Hygiene.
Wood delivers excellent results for projects of all scales: It's light and versatile, eco-friendly, provides insulation and energy benefits, and aesthetically pleasing.
Modern historians often trace the beginning of the environmental movement to 1970, when Gaylord Nelson, a former Wisconsin governor (1958-1962) and a senator (1963-1981), wanted to foster dialogue and conversations about environmental issues. Nelson's teach-ins formed Earth Day, a catalyst moment that brought the environment into the political and cultural zeitgeist, forever changing its perception by the masses.
Upon reading the acronym "BIM", one often thinks of the three-dimensional mapping of products in a digital model. But there's much more to it: With BIM, architects and planners can manage any information related to building design and represent processes, thus making data available at the right time and to the right extent.
Biodiversity is the variety of life on the Earth. Its spectrum might include anything from the number of species of plants, animals, microorganisms, and the gene pools in these species to the different ecosystems on the planet, such as deserts, rainforests, and coral reefs.
