BOSNOMA’s Gerard Georges to Speak at MedEd

DSC03943_HeadshotGerard Georges will speak at the third annual MedEd Facilities Conference which will be held on April 26-27 at the Seaport Hotel in Boston, MA. Georges session, entitled “Designing for Rapid Response, Ebola and Future Infectious Diseases” will be on Tuesday, April 26 from 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM.

The recent outbreak of Ebola in West Africa put in sharp focus the lack of a coherent strategy for addressing infectious disease outbreaks. Fear and confusion around the crisis resulted many potentially preventable deaths. It also highlighted the importance of a systematic approach for designing facilities that can quickly be constructed to support the rapid response necessary to address such outbreaks, specifically in resource-limited settings. Before contemplating possible solutions, it is critically important to assess existing clinical protocols, infrastructure and protective measures currently in place within a particular healthcare system. Likewise, it is important to understand local construction practices, available materials, regulatory requirements, procurement processes and security issues. Finally, a broad awareness of potential infectious diseases and general risk mitigation procedures should be determined.This session will discuss strategic responses to this crisis by healthcare providers, governments, and non-governmental agencies, detailing a prototype for a standardized Triage Unit that could be built with local labor and materials and implemented at multiple locations.

Social Equity in the Built Environment

Social Equity has long been conceptualized as the third (and often last) leg of a triple bottom line sustainability stool.  While LEED has driven environmental concerns to have equal footing with economic ones, we are just at the beginning of developing tools that allow us to measure and examine social equity results in a similar way.

This special event will include presentations from Francis Janes – director of the JUST Organizations labeling program for ILFI, Shawn Hesse – co-author of the new LEED Social Equity Pilot Credits, and Tony Ransom – Past President of the Boston chapter of the National Organization of Minority Architects (BosNOMA) discussing the importance of a focus on social equity in design, construction, and operations of our buildings, communities, and our organizations.

When: April 4th, 2015 from 5:30 to 7:30

Where: Milk St, 15th Floor
                Conf Room “Aristotle”
                Boston, MA 02109
