The Orange Line Holiday Train Exhibit: A High Rise Home for the Holidays

We had a great time building a model for this annual holiday tradition! Come join us tonight for the opening of The Orange Line Holiday Train Exhibit at The Center for Architecture and Design! December 4 @ 6:00 pm8:00 pm

As The Center for Architecture and Design said “The Lazarus department store holiday window displays were extravagant winter worlds in miniature, featuring trains, toys, and other festive decorations created for the flagship store at Town and High Streets. Inspired by that tradition, The Center for Architecture and Design again presents a contemporary take on the holiday train display. The well-crafted model is a powerful and evocative tool unique to the design professions.”

The Trinity design team shows off their model making skills for the 2015 Orange Line Holiday Train Exhibit.

Nationwide Children’s Hospital New 12,600 Sf. Behavioral Health Unit

This 16-bed Inpatient Behavioral Health Unit is the first of its kind for Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The patients in this unit have access to a multi-disciplinary team of pediatric experts including specialists for varying medical conditions. Private Rooms are a defining feature, which are especially useful for younger patients who may desire a parent to stay overnight.

For the architects and planners at Trinity Health Group in Columbus, Ohio the key aspect of this design was assuring safety, both the safety of patients and staff. Due to the nature of the unit, everything in the unit had to be tested to be sure it could not be used to harm oneself or another, from the screws used, to the special glass or the design of the observation room.  Secondly, a warm, calming, and non-threatening environment was needed. This was achieved by using the Nationwide Children’s Hospital interior design approach to guide finish selections for the durable materials.  The glazing with translucent graphic silhouettes allows sunlight to infiltrate the space, but also allows for an appropriate amount of privacy.

The Behavioral Health Unit is a brand new program added to the Hospital’s list of services and was part of a much larger 103,000 sf renovation in which Trinity Health Group was the Project Architect. The components of the 12,600 sf project include, 16 private rooms, seclusion room, activity and common rooms, family consult rooms, education and group rooms and treatment and staff support.

Trinity’s Bob Gesing Featured Speaker at 3rd Next Generation Healthcare Facilities Summit-East Coast

Columbus, OH — Trinity’ principal, Bob Gesing is a featured speaker at the 3rd Next Generation Healthcare Facilities Summit-East Coast, at the Royal Sonesta 40 Edwin Land Boulevard, Cambridge, Massachusetts, which takes place August 10-12th. He will be speaking on the first day of the conference at 2:00pm.

Bob’s presentation will focus on the emergence of the Affordable Care Act, Population Based Healthcare and the anticipated impact on healthcare reimbursements and economics, and how healthcare systems will be forced to redefine “doing more with less”. He explains, “Hospitals over the past thirty years have grown exponentially in size.  While driven often times by healthcare technology and perceived customer expectations, a new paradigm is needed to curb the exponential growth of facilities that may become unsustainable in the near future and seek a new value for healthcare facility delivery.” The presentation will outline one organization’s journey to accomplish this challenging objective and the pitfalls, successes and failures along the way.

IQPC’s 3rd Next Generation Healthcare Facilities Summit – East Coast was designed to address the challenges and solutions within the healthcare industry, through design and construction, so as to better equip healthcare organizations to be more competitive in today’s customer driven marketplace.
