Building as If Every Day is Earth Day

Unfortunately, the construction industry has historically been the biggest culprit of energy depletion and CO2 emissions, to the tune of globally accounting for about 36% and 39%, respectively.1 These numbers may be disheartening, but global dialogue has increased awareness and industry leaders have responded with action. By implementing green building policies, sharing data-driven information, and promoting environmentally-sustainable practices, we can all do our part to be conscious, responsible contributors within the construction industry. As the preeminent tenant improvement general contractor in Southern California, Howard Building Corporation (HBC) builds workspaces – or “second homes” – while recognizing the potential impact on our larger collective home. At HBC, we do everything in our power to positively impact the environment, and it is crucial, more than ever, that we continue to be a leader in the green building movement.

As our aging population grows, new technology arises, and overall health improves, healthcare priorities have adapted. HBC’s healthcare division has seen this firsthand. The shift has resulted in a changing healthcare real estate market which, in turn, impacts how these projects are constructed. The healthcare industry is one of the largest in the U.S., and the demand for new facilities continues to grow exponentially. Approximately 40% of demand is for the construction of outpatient facilities and medical office buildings.1 This article will explore how healthcare design has shifted within the past five years and how these changes reflect the values of our healthcare-seeking population. We will then turn to our own recently completed healthcare projects as case studies for the current healthcare model and for what is to come.
