Tour of LEED GOLD Boone Hospital Patient Tower

Join us in Columbia on July 2 for an in-depth tour of Boone Hospital Center's LEED Gold patient tower addition.  During this event, we will take a tour of the facility, looking in detail at some of the sustainable features that make Boone Hospital Center a better environment for employees and patients.  This tour will include details of how LEED sustainable features were implemented as design and construction progressed through the project. The presentation will help Architects, Engineers, and Construction Professionals understand how LEED can be implemented in the strictly regulated Healthcare industry.  Many of these principles will translate well to other industries and building types.  Specific learning objectives include:
  • Describe how outdoor gardens can be used to enhance the healing environment
  • Identify "behind-the-walls" sustainability features such as recycled and locally manufactured materials
  • Assess the methods used to achieve 95% construction waste recycling 
  • Explore how natural light was used to improve the indoor environment
  • Examine a commercial rooftop solar array
  • Assess the challenges involved in executing LEED in the heavily regulated healthcare environment.
