Travel back to the year 1957.............
A ribbon cutting ceremony commences on a new, state-of-the-art hospital. In your wildest dreams, could you have anticipated the social, clinical, technological, or economic change that would drive the operations of that same hospital today?
Similarly, when you cut the ribbon on a new,
state-of-the art hospital today, can you imagine
what will drive health care in 2057?
Yet imagination is exactly what we need if we are to be successful in planning and designing a healthcare facility that will be built to last for 50 years—imagination and a physical planning solution that enables radical adaptability in the future.
Only when one thinks "outside the box" can you see the possibilities.
Diversified Fixture recently renovated a Veterinary Hospital in Long Island, NY. We understand the many issues, functional requirements and animal health and safety aspects specific to the animal care industry. For this project were able to give the staff an updated look without compromising purpose or functionality. Our favorite addition was the dog leash holder built in to the reception area. This design allows the pet owner to easily interact with the receptionist while having both hands free to sign in.
Chances are you probably haven't given much thought to how the shop of your cabinet manufacturer is laid out, but you should.
It's a debate that many in the technical fields of engineering, architecture and construction have been having for decades - which is better: hand-drawn or computer-generated plans?
At Diversified Fixture, we believe hand sketches are a great place to start as we're quickly drafting the project or taking measurements, but AutoCAD has significantly changed the way drafting is done nowadays, and thus all of our drafting is done via computer. Manual drafting is tedious, exacting, and extremely time consuming -- especially in stages of the project where many changes are being made. CAD (Computer Aided Design) on the other hand allows for easy changes, layers and very accurate dimensioning making CAD drawing extremely efficient. Additionally, CAD drawings are able to be imported to programs that allow our customers to view the drawing in 3-D, providing an accurate visualization of the finished project.
