Preparing a Capital Construction Project Budget

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn the components of a project charter and program.
  2. Obtain tools and tips for conducting program and design meetings to avoid scope creep.
  3. Develop a budget, based on the pre-design program requirements.

Session Abstract

Since project budgets originate with the program, this presentation will be focused on learning program components and how to efficiently develop and implement capital project programs to meet master plan and corporate goals.  The importance of determining a program budget prior to designing the project will also be discussed, along with a checklist of costly items that are often overlooked.  Project examples and practical tools will be provided.

Architectural Principles of Safety and Security in Healthcare Environments

In response to rising violence in healthcare settings, there is a critical need to prioritize safety and security in these facilities. HFG (Health Facilities Group) Architecture presents a comprehensive approach informed by Crime Prevention Through Environmental Design (CPTED) principles and dedicated expertise. This presentation outlines three high-level aspects for a multifaceted approach to safety.

Organized Security — The organization of people, including hospital security, to enhance the perception of safety through observation, deter criminal activity, and promote psychological safety

Mechanical Security — Understanding the role of hardware and software to facilitate security goals; for example, implementing controlled access points and wayfinding elements to reduce crime opportunities and foster a sense of security

Natural Security — The design of the site and building to promote observation, ownership, and control of spaces and users, including:

  • Natural Reinforcement | Naturally deterring crime by guiding visitors towards staff-populated areas, fostering a sense of perceived ownership
  • Ongoing Maintenance | Ensuring both the interior and exterior of the facility presents a well-maintained image, utilizing landscaping and repairs as psychological tools to deter criminal behavior
  • Site Analysis | Understanding the geographical context and community trends to inform design decisions effectively

By integrating these layers into a healthcare setting, whether at the onset of design or as an analysis of existing conditions, architects work collaboratively with the Owner to create healthcare facilities that prioritize safety and security. The application of CPTED principles provides a proactive approach to mitigating violence in healthcare settings, ultimately ensuring the safety of patients, staff, and visitors, while also optimizing the functionality and efficiency of the site’s or facility's infrastructure.
