Crossing our t’s + dotting our i’s with effective code review
Healthcare facilities have some of the most rigorous and continuously refined building codes; requiring continuous learning and knowledge sharing to accurately assess, navigate and implement solutions. Understanding the importance of code in healthcare design, we set an architectural industry standard through our seasoned team of architects that not only know these codes, but also help write them. Our healthcare process incorporates quality control review and code analysis at each phase, facilitating code approval and supporting project timelines. Whether it be a new or existing building, our code assessments will identify the best path forward. Our rigorous approach to code establishes a basis of trust and partnership with our clients.
One of our dedicated code experts, Marty Petroviak, has over 39 years of experience and oversees all code analysis and implementation while mentoring our team. He is a firm-wide resource, provides on-site code reviews and works closely with the authority having jurisdiction to assist resolution on unique code deficiency concerns. In addition, our entire healthcare team is versed in the latest code requirements, proactively researching code requirements, sharing findings and bringing problem solving solutions to challenging code conditions. And not only do we review code, but EUA President Kristin Dufek is on the Facility Guidelines Institute (FGI) Health Guidelines Revision Committee of nationwide experts in healthcare facility design authoring new versions of the guidelines.
