Event description

Description

Join AIAVT for an event at the UVM Medical Center to learn how E4H Architects approached the design and construction of the new Miller building bed tower. This event will include a tour of the newly constructed hospital wing, a series of educational presentations, and a networking social with complimentary hors d'ourves and cash bar in the Garden Atrium.


E4H Architecture worked with the University of Vermont Medical Center to acheive the hospital's goal of increasing the number of single rooms from 30%-90%, and thereby increase wellness through benefits such as lower nosocomial infection rates, decreased noise and stress, improved privacy/patient confidentiality, facilitated family support, and improved staff to patient communication.

The Miller Building inpatient bed replacement includes 4 inpatient floors and 128 private rooms. Each private patient room was designed with a medical/ surgical telemetry bed and enhanced monitoring capability. Patient rooms will also include space for supporting family members as well as ample natural light.

The presentations will include information on the design process, including the planning & conceptual design process, which involved heavy user group input including collaboration with a Facility Master Planning Steering Committee, a Sustainability Council, Internal Departments, Design User Groups for nursing, support, and ancillary services, and a Patients and Families Design User Group.
