The Orlando Health Interior Design Guidelines, undertaken by Asset Management, sought to capture the essence of the brand, set quality standards that would better predict costs for varying levels of institutional and medical office builds on finishes and furniture, make more efficient use of staff time and decision making for projects, organize multiple existing and new campuses to a central control by the healthcare system, and institute a process for post-occupancy evaluations to actively adjust the guidelines based on in-place performance. This presentation will include and address the following questions: What were the decisions made to define, challenge, and assimilate the design process? What aspects of the process are adaptable to other healthcare systems? What benefits and ongoing assessments can be made to objectively measure the quality and performance of materials and furniture utilized in healthcare settings?
