Industry Spokesperson: Mr Surender Kumar, Head Projects-Fortis Healthcare Ltd

Mr Surender kumar, Head Projects joined Fortis Healthcare ltd in Oct.2000 and has been associated with the company for the last 17 years. He overlooks the design and engineering of the company and verticals of project management. Mr. Kumar is an Engineering graduate from M.I.T. Manipal after which he did Post Graduate Diploma in Business Administration from Symbiosis Institute Pune. AS per him, there is a huge gap between supply and demand of hospital Beds in India. Indian Healthcare is growing at a 15 percent CAGR to reach US$158 billion by 2017.

He recommends, while designing a hospital building you should consider the grid Size of 7.8X8.5 m for Indian conditions. The standard roof for Hospital should not be less than 4.2m, to provide area for MEP services and to have a clear height of room as 2700mm

As per Mr. Surender there are certain advantages of using Steel structure over RCC building like faster construction, Low carbon footprints , more floor area is available as sections dimensions are less, dust free construction, better quality control and Steel are a recyclable material.

His emphasis is more on Green Buildings as they are very useful in conserving natural resources and energy efficient. He feels that companies in the healthcare should promote green material and should incorporate green materials like, Insulated blocks for the periphery of the building to reduce heat gain, Low VOC paints, LED Lights, Green Laminates, Structural Steel for Canopies, trusses, Efficient Glass for the envelope, Low flow fixtures, grass pavers to reduce Heat Island effect to make an efficient Hospital building.

As per him the latest trend in healthcare is Mobile Health Apps and its' adoption is increasing, New Strategies are being discussed to deliver Low-Cost Healthcare & Pace of setting up Cancer Centre is on the rise.

Advantages of Using Steel Buildings for the Healthcare Industry:

The Health sector demands buildings that are flexible and adaptable in use and which can be constructed rapidly to meet tight schedules.

bullet.png Steel structure is faster to erect, as compared to RCC frames being lighter in weight & offers speed in construction and time saving resulting in an overall cost saving in the project news-jan18-img5.jpg
bullet.png Easily expanded in the future without providing any hindrance to the existing hospital operations & minimum disturbance to the patients during construction as no wet construction is done.
bullet.png Steel structures are ideal for construction for healthcare facilities in remote locations & hilly areas as work is carried out by skilled labour.
bullet.png Steel structures are manufactured in a plant, and no fabrication is done on site which guarantees quality product
bullet.png No site storage space is required, as JIT delivery is followed
bullet.png Steel occupies less space and can be designed for larger span/column free spaces, resulting greater floor area in comparison to RCC
bullet.png Better seismic performance & Fire resistant structures option & Low maintenance cost

Industry Spokesperson: Artika Aggarwal &Yashas Watwani, Design HKS Consultants

HKS Inc. was founded in 1939 and currently has 24 offices worldwide that are serving projects located in over 1,500 cities throughout 92 countries. HKS is a team of more than 1,400 professionals working together across industries and across the globe to create places that delight, heal and stimulate peak performance. Their services include Design Consultancy, Planning and development, Programming, Project Management, Interior Design, Advisory Practice, Research, Sustainable design, Design Interpretation

As per Ms. Artika, any multi-storey hospital buildings should be designed using codes like NBC, FGI, JCI and local byelaws. Spatial requirements and structural codes determine the live loads, dead loads, wind loads and seismic loads considered. As per NBC 2016
(Part 6, Table 1) UDL for Patient rooms can be taken as 2 KN/m2, for Operating rooms as 3 KN/m2, and for OPD rooms can be 2.5 KN/m2., The loading details depend on the location and the building working requirement. Designers should also consider sustainable design practices that help in improving the wellbeing of the user, reducing carbon impact and creating a triple bottom line for the client.

Mr. Yashas suggests, that for a healthcare project, typical grid sizes can be determined by the size of internal modules such as patient rooms and OTs, as well as parking. For optimum patient room clearances, FGI guidelines are taken into consideration. For surgical spaces, FGI guidelines along with vendor specific data is used. Parking also impacts grid sizes, for which a minimum spacing of 8200 X 8200mm is considered.
As per best practice the grid sizes ranging from 8200 X 8200 to 8500 X 8500 should be considered, depending on the bed tower configuration.

The team feels that the role of architects & consultants is first to address the needs of the client. This is done by adopting global best practices to local climatic, social, financial and operational requirements. It is also imperative to continually advise and make the client aware of potential issues that may arise in meeting the client mandate while arriving at an optimized design solution. Further fire safety is very important and any building designed should be fully compliant with the NBC and local fire authority in terms of fire safety and prevention. Designers and consultants should ensure all applicable fire safety codes are taken care of.

Building Made Possible in Steel: The New Stobhill Hospital, Glasgow
The New Stobhill Hospital is one of two new ACAD (ambulatory care and diagnostic) facilities for NHS Greater Glasgow Clyde under PPP. This new hospital deals with about 80% of the patient load of a district general hospital with a high throughput of patients, about 2,000 per day. Very great care was taken to design a functional building with clear way finding and a non-hospital feel.
The new Hospital was constructed adjacent to the existing facility, on land that was formerly occupied by a car park. It has become one of Scotland's largest hospitals with its two three-level buildings having a total floor area of 30,000m2

The hospital's two three-storey rectangular buildings comprise a steel frame construction on reinforced concrete foundations. The simply jointed steel frames with composite concrete floors on metal decking act compositely with the plain UB floor beams. The hospital's steel frame was completed in just 15 weeks and by the 30th week of start of construction out of 122 week, the contractor started fitting out services and partitions. This was due to the speed, sequence and efficiency of the steelwork
bullet.png 1,600 tonnes of steel and 6500 m3 of concrete were needed to build the New Stobhill Hospital. news-jan18-img2.jpg
bullet.png The hospital has 1,400 doors and more than 550 windows.
bullet.png Laid out together, the hospital's internal partitions would stretch for six miles – which is greater than the distance between Bishopbriggs and Glasgow city centre.
Latest trends in technology to watch out for in 2018 in the Healthcare Industry: Wearable's

Wearable technology, wearable's, fashionable technology, wearable devices, tech togs, or fashion electronics are smart electronic devices (electronic device with micro-controllers) that can be worn on the body as implants or accessories Wearable technology is related to both ubiquitous computing and the history and development of wearable computers. Wearable's make technology pervasive by incorporating it into daily life. Through the history and development of wearable computing, pioneers have attempted to enhance or extend the functionality of clothing, or to create wearable's as accessories able to provide users with surveillance - the recording of an activity typically by way of small wearable or portable personal technologies. Tracking information like movement, steps, and heart rate is part of the self-movement.

Now, mobile devices as small as a cell phone can perform ECGs, DIY blood tests, or serve as a thermometer, all without even leaving the house. With help from automation, patients can even be prompted to check their weight, pulse, or oxygen levels, and enter results into mobile patient portals. Even better: They can transmit the results to the doctor in real time. Those details, when entered regularly, can help predict one's risk for heart disease and other illnesses, ultimately saving lives. This trend is catching up very fast on only with the young, but people in the their 50's and 60's
