1 AIA/CES SD LU and IDCEC/CEU Credit .01

Program Description:
Sustainable Design is more and more a significant consideration with new construction and renovation projects alike. As a result, architects and designers are faced with increased pressures to balance sustainability with the client’s usability needs and budgetary constraints.

This presentation compares and contrasts traditional storage products against today’s flexible storage solutions. The focus is on illustrating how today’s customizable storage solutions can contribute to sustainable design goals and LEED certification efforts by design. Attendees will see animations, application photos, and even video focused on demonstrating the fundamental characteristics of storage products and how each can be manipulated to balance sustainable design with the needs of the end user.


Learning Objectives

  • Increase awareness of today’s storage solutions having greater contributions to sustainable design over traditional approaches.
  • Establish clear understanding of the LEED certification categories where storage has contributions.
  • Develop enhanced knowledge of storage solutions being customized to achieve sustainable design objectives.
  • Identify ways a storage specialist can help you meet the needs and sustainable design goals of the end user.

1 AIA/CES HSW LU

Program Description:
Storage location and configuration, if correctly designed, can influence staff functions, staff efficiency, staff productivity, and ultimately… patient care. In addition, careful planning can produce marked improvements in inventory control–a prime importance in healthcare facilities today. Learn how to bring storage closer to the point-of-care, closer to the patient… healthcare’s point-of-need.

There are approximately 6,200 acute care hospitals in the United States, many of which are aging facilities that are in vast need of renovation. 78 Million Baby Boomers beginning to retire with increased life expectancies will push the healthcare industry to change the way in which we receive healthcare. The advent of ever-changing technology like 4-D ultrasounds and home remote monitoring systems are great examples. And how will Evidence-based Medicine drive room design. Also learn how consolidations in healthcare will affect profitability and the use of shared services.


Learning Objectives

  • Identify major storage concerns within specific areas of the Acute Healthcare market
  • Discuss trends that healthcare providers are currently facing and how storage can play a part
  • Identify storage options that maximize efficiency, floor space, reduce constructions costs and allow healthcare professionals to spend more time caring for their patients
  • Identify the elements to consider when planning storage spaces in order to meet customer and regulatory requirements

1 AIA/CES LU

Program Description:
We all have a role to play in our Nation’s security.

Facility and Logistic Planners will provide the architects and designers with the requirements and needs of the units going into those facilities. They will set the direction for what the needs are. Architects and Designers will plan efficient buildings to support the functions of the units. They will plan for productive flow of space and consider green initiatives and environmental impacts. General Contractors will be entrusted to build the buildings in the budget allowed. Equipment specialists will be tasked with providing the right equipment for the application at a fair cost and under contracts that make it easy for the Government to procure.

To accomplish the tasks before us, it is imperative that industry and designers, in tune with the government , drive new innovations that streamline functions, provide for changing and flexible missions, and provide overall cost savings to maximize future budgets.

Storage equipment and layouts play an important role in our Military’s ability to be Ready and Secure.

This presentation will focus on what Productive Storage means, illustrate various storage options and then drill into the applications where they can be used.

1 AIA/CES HSW LU

Program Description:
The facilities mandate is clear. “Do more with less space!” High-density mobile storage systems provide twice the storage capacity in the same floor space or free up space for other activities, but increased storage density results in increased floor loads in the building. With a basic understanding of floor loading concepts the non-engineer can become conversant with the structural professional and, thus, potentially speed up the building design and decision making process by avoiding unnecessary delays.

In addition to the basics of floor loading and building code requirements, this report touches on the main components and basic characteristics of floor systems in three general categories: 1.) Reinforced concrete frames that are case-in-place, 2.) Structural steel frames and 3.) Hybrid or specialized frames.

Structural systems must be evaluated for both uniform load ratings and concentrated load ratings. Most high-density storage systems create a concentrated load on a floor.

There are several strategies to accommodate the heavier loads in buildings created by high-density storage systems. These include the ability to reorient, redistribute, relocate, reconfigure and reinforce. This report illustrates several strategies to accommodate heavier loads with the use of real life case studies.


Learning Objectives

  • Why floor loading must be considered.
  • The floor load characteristics of high-density storage systems.
  • Introduce common floor construction types and their properties.

Program Format/Length:
Sixty-minute PowerPoint Slide presentation including Questions & Answer period.


Experience Level: Intermediate

 

1 AIA/CES HSW LU

Program Description:
The design mandate is clear. “Do more with less space!” High-density storage systems can approach or even exceed twice the storage capacity in the same floor space or free up space for other activities. The increased storage density results in increased floor loads which, if not anticipated or properly planned for, can lead to floor load compliance and operational problems down the road. With an essential understanding of high-density mobile storage systems and their load transfer characteristics the non-engineer and engineer alike will become conversant in issues related to optimizing storage space within a building. Speed up the building design and decision making process by avoiding unnecessary delays and changes. Furthermore, the architect, designer and structural engineer should be able to identify the new construction building types most suitable for high-density storage. Moreover, several strategies exist to accommodate heavy storage system loads. These include the ability to reorient, redistribute, relocate, reconfigure and reinforce. This program contains an illustrated case study as well as several examples of post construction modifications and supplements for high-density storage.


Learning Objectives

  • Describe high-density mobile storage load transfer characteristics
  • Identify building construction types most suitable for high-density mobile storage systems
  • Application of post construction modifications and supplements for storage systems
