Adaptive interior design grows in healthcare sector
The healthcare industry is undergoing rapid change in terms of technologies and process. New systems are being put in place in rapid succession and interior designers who specialize in building unique healthcare facilities are trying to create more adaptive spaces.
Using adaptive, sustainable design in medical facilities
According to Contract Design Magazine, approximately 170,000 commercial buildings are constructed each year in the U.S. and another 44,000 commercial structures are demolished. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has stated that 48 percent of the waste stream created each year in the nation comes from building-related construction and demolition debris. This fact has led many interior designers, architects and contractors to reconsider their creation of specialized spaces.
Together, these two trends are combining to create an overall movement toward creating adaptive sustainability. Those experts in the commercial construction and related industries are working together to build new or renovate old structures with a more adaptive design that can be modernized in the future without too much difficulty.
Because the healthcare industry is in an almost constant state of flux and changes at such a rapid pace, it's important that medical facilities are designed with adaptability in mind. The right materials, floor plan and interior design can be created by professionals to support the creation of medical facilities that can be easily renovated to meet the changes needs of the industry.
