Lunchtime Learning: Low Voltage Technology Systems & Acoustics in Healthcare


Designing a state-of-the-art healthcare facility requires an understanding of low voltage technology systems and acoustics. Join AIA|DC and Convergent Technologies Design Group, Inc. to review key design considerations, project-specific applications, and current trends and innovations in healthcare design. Various low voltage systems and their impact on building occupants will be discussed. Additionally, participants will learn how to choose the best acoustical products for meeting HIPAA privacy requirements in healthcare facilities.

Sponsored by: Convergent Technologies Design Group, Inc.

After attending this course, participants will be able to:

1. Describe the preliminary core architectural space allocations required to meet the needs of telecommunications and low voltage building systems in healthcare facilities;
2. Articulate the differences between low voltage systems and describe the relevance to facility security, operations, and personnel;
3. Summarize basic concepts for acoustical product selection to achieve various acoustical performance criteria in healthcare facilities; and
4. Explain HIPAA legal requirements for privacy and their impact on acoustical design considerations in healthcare facilities.
