Seminar 4: What Happened to our Hospitals after the COVID-19 Fiasco? HVAC Design, Control and Operation

Chair: Frank Shadpour, P.E.
Most of our hospitals survived the COVID-19 fiasco; and, quite frankly, we don't know how. Every hospital scrambled to remain operational, including providing makeshift negative pressure rooms to safeguard its occupants to the extent possible. Now what? We need to plan for the battles of the future rather than focusing on the wars of the past. This seminar focuses on the lessons learned and presents the latest technology for the proper design, control, and operation of hospitals. New standards regarding air changes per hour, filtration and building automation are among the topics of discussion.
