Keyword: Interstitial Space
Flexibility of services is needed for modern hospitals along with the requirement to install and service newer and more complex equipment.
New programs need space and additional heating and cooling loads require additional equipment and ductwork. Duct shafts and equipment space is at a premium and interstitial space would be an ideal solution to the ever changing requirements in the health care industry.
Require that interstitial space be studied for inclusion in all new IHS Hospitals. Evaluation should rely heavily on life cycle costing of this space.
