The Environmental Design Research Association (EDRA) awarded HGA with a Certificate of Research Excellence (CORE) for the study “On-Stage/Off-Stage Clinic Design: Implications for Operational Efficiencies, Staff Collaboration and Privacy”. CORE recognizes rigorous, valuable, and impactful practice-based research that sparks innovation and promotes best practice in environmental design.
The design of a new medical/surgical unit can cause mixed emotions among users of the space: excitement from knowing that an improved work environment typically equates to improved workflow but also anxiety regarding changes to staff processes and delivery of care. A classic example of this can be found in transitioning from a centralized to a decentralized model.
Flexible workspaces and collaboration inspire today's office design.
HGA's Workplace Research Study "What Matters Most in the Workplace" identifies what drives corporate real estate decisions, what design features are most important to workers, and what's in store for the future of workplace strategies.
