Stephen Carbery, BE, MBA, Vice President Facilities Design Construction & Real Estate Yale New Haven Health
Walter “Ted” Dow, PE, MS, Senior Fire Protection Engineer, Jensen Hughes
Scott Aronson, Senior Vice President, Security Risk + Emergency Management, Jensen Hughes
The emphasis on designing for the future while managing budgets and timelines often overshadows the focus on risk and compliance. Yale New Haven Health has incorporated a new process to address compliance in the early design phase of new construction and renovation. This includes initiatives such as ongoing engagement with the State Department of Health and early review of best practices for emergency planning and preparedness. These endeavors commence early and continue throughout the construction process. This session will provide an overview of Yale’s initiatives and outline the successful outcomes along with the areas for ongoing improvement.
