EwingCole’s Bayhealth Pavilion Wins Best of Year

 “Can you believe this is a hospital? Look, it’s gorgeous!” – Juror comment
Philadelphia, PA (December 2012) –  EwingCole, one of the nation’s leading architecture, engineering, and interior design firms, is pleased to announce that the firm’s design for Bayhealth Medical Center’s Phase II Pavilion has been recognized by Interior Design as Best of Year 2012 in the Health Care: Large category.

The work was honored on November 29, 2012, when over 800 designers and manufacturers gathered in New York City to celebrate the best projects and products of the year.

For this 7th annual event, Best of Year Project Design honorees were selected by Editor-in-Chief Cindy Allen and a jury of design leaders from four finalists in each of 45 categories, chosen from over 550 total submissions.

Present to receive the awards were Designer Saul Jabbawy, Architect Mary Frazier, Interior Designer Rebecca Ofsharick, and Structural Engineer Oscar Gomes.

Completed in March 2012, the $140 million, 391,000 sf project is designed as a base for a future seven-story patient tower. Connections to existing facilities resolve a campus strategy for the separation of operationally efficient service circulation from the clear wayfinding for public and patient flow. The program includes state-of-the-art emergency and trauma departments with a helipad. An integrated cancer center located just off the new entrance lobby houses radiation oncology, medical oncology and infusion, a central sterile department, compounding pharmacy and a conference and training center. The project had previously been awarded the “Best Interior Design 2012 Award” by the International Interior Design Association, PA, NJ & DE Chapter […]

EwingCole Completes Community College Library Expansion

Anne Arundel’s Library nearly doubles, turns high-tech and green

Washington, DC (November 2012) — EwingCole, one of the nation’s leading architecture, engineering and interior design firms, is pleased to announce the completion of the $17.2 million, Andrew G. Truxal Library expansion and renovation at Anne Arundel Community College in Arnold, MD. One of the three original buildings from the 1968 campus, the Truxal Library is now nearly doubled in size and completely upgraded technologically.

“As is true of most college libraries, the Truxal Library is the soul of the institution,” said John Chase, EwingCole architect. “The Library plays a critical role in campus life for both students and faculty.  Truxal is now state-of-the-art technologically and energy-efficient, with new areas for private study, collaborative research, and relaxing between classes.”

The expansion added 32,000 sf to the south side of the existing 45,000 sf structure, which is located adjacent to the College’s entrance road. The new two-story glass façade, emphasizing new technologies, is the first image of the library seen by visitors to the campus. According to school officials, positioning the addition on the south side, the last remaining open area on the central campus, reasserts the library as the focus of the academic quad while creating a new iconic image for the College.

Inside, a double-height space contains individual and shared computer work stations and surrounding group study rooms for collaborative learning.  The full-height glass is embedded with a ceramic pattern to control sunlight and reduce glare on the computer screens.

Features of the new library include

134-seat Technology Learning Center
224 […]

Ambulatory Facility of the Future

Presentation by Michael Hubble from The Advisory Board Company

Prior to the Great Recession, hospitals and health systems were pouring capital into outpatient facility renovation and expansion initiatives. As the economy has recovered and capital markets have begun to thaw, many organizations have jump started their planning efforts around ambulatory care. Yet the rationale for investing in outpatient sites has changed and it is clear that ambulatory space configurations will have to evolve to accommodate new care delivery models. Facility layouts must also adapt to advances in clinical and information technologies.

Looking Ahead
Inpatient Hospital Facilities: The Next 10 Years

By Patrick Shultz, AIA, EDAC, LEED AP
In May 2007, the American Hospital Association published its report “When I’m 64, How Boomers Will Change Health Care”. The report details how Baby Boomers, as they age, will impact U.S. healthcare. As Boomers reach age 65, they will do so at a rate of over 10,000 per day, or 4,000,000 per year. The report states, “By 2030, there will be more than 70 million Americans over age 65”. This aging population will utilize the bulk of health care resources and represent a full one-third of our U.S. population moving through the health care system and its facilities by 2030.
