The impact of aging infrastructure and site on facility planning.Healthc Facil Manag Ser. 1993 FebHF
Infrastructure analysis should be a basic component of the facility master plan and specific information concerning the site and facility must be collected, evaluated, and analyzed at each phase of development of the master plan. The interpretation of such information can significantly impact the visibility of design solutions, department locations, construction phasing, and costs. This paper identifies the information to be collected, its potential impact on the master plan, and the facility manager's role during the planning process.
