Our Approach to Human Centered Design

Project Delivery

Some people are great at dreaming, but nothing ever happens.

Some people are good at ‘doing’ but just doing the same thing over and over – cookie cutters.

The people of Mazzetti create visions (with you) and deliver them.

And we use four lenses of foursight to make it happen.

We help drive the future by disrupting the status quo—removing barriers (restrictive policy) and establishing better solutions (through research). Because we drive the future of healthcare design and other critical infrastructure, we help you: plan for it, identify realistically how to pay for it, and realize it. (We deliver on our shared vision.)

Research & Policy

To be able to design buildings of the future, to be “the scalpel”, Mazzetti employees pro-actively serve on various code committees, and research initiatives. The codes they are working to adapt and write are positively changing the way the industry designs MEPT systems and the way in which healthcare providers provide care. Mazzetti’s staff has contributed tirelessly to the ASHE Sustainability committee, served on FGI (Facilities Guideline Institute) HGRC (Healthcare Guideline Revision Committee), ASHRAE Standard 170 Ventilation of Healthcare Facilities (Natural Ventilation Subcommittee, Clinical Subcommittee & HVAC Subcommittee) ASHRAE Standard 189.3P Standard for the Design, Construction and Operation of Sustainable High Performance Health Care Facilities, and ASHRAE 188P Standard for control of Legionellosis.

Planning

Most buildings are out of date the day they open. Mazzetti helps you, our clients, make forward-looking infrastructure investments with critical planning. We help you in the master planning-process, to better anticipate building needs and operations. We help you plan for resource constraints, prepare for disasters, and leverage new technologies. Through LEAN planning and process engineering, we help you improve operations and reduce waste. We help you assess facility and program needs, develop total project costs and ROI assessments, and analyze cash flow for both short and long-term planning.

Finance

Good research and planning only work if you can pay for these infrastructure investments. We help you understand creative ways to finance infrastructure investments. We conduct financial analyses and develop national financing strategies for hospitals and healthcare systems. We help you take advantage of the latest rebates and incentives from utility companies.We design creative financing solutions: power purchase agreements, performance-based compensation, carbon offset credits, and social impact investing.

Project Delivery

We deliver results. We want our doctors to heal us, not just to operate on us. In the same way, you want us to give you what YOU want. (Delivering a project that is on budget and on time is a given, not a differentiator.) So, it is imperative that we understand the question you are trying to answer, the problem you need solved, and the investment you are trying to make. We deliver results in the form of high-quality engineering and technology solutions to fit your needs.
