Advancing Energy Efficiency at Healthcare Facilities
Mazzetti partnered with Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) in advancing innovation in energy efficiency in healthcare. The U.S. Department of Energy, the Department of Science and Technology and the Government of India provided joint funding for work under a U.S.–India Partnership to Advance Clean Energy Research. The specific US-India program is called CBERD–Center for Building Energy Research and Development. Join the research--become a pilot hospital!
Healthcare Ventilation Standards: Why More Research is Needed
Our hypothesis, though controversial for some, is that we frequently over-ventilate spaces. We don’t truly understand ‘why’ the standards prescribe a certain number of air changes. As a result, hospital owners (likely) are wasting energy dollars without improving indoor air quality.
IFHE Launches Global Healthcare Energy Awards
The International Federation of Healthcare Engineering (IFHE), with support from the Association of Medical Facility Professionals (AMFP) and Mazzetti, has launched its first ever Global Healthcare Energy Awards. The awards aim to encourage healthcare facilities around the world to commit to a reduction in energy use that will ultimately lessen the entire global health system’s intensive carbon footprint, all through a simple energy tracking process.
Pushing MEP Boundaries for New UCSF Parnassus Heights Hospital
University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) has selected San Francisco-based, healthcare specialists Mazzetti and global consulting and engineering firm Arup as the lead MEP engineers of record for its new hospital, UCSF Helen Diller Medical Center at Parnassus Heights (Parnassus Heights). Collaborating with architect partners HDR (Architect of Record) and Herzog & de Meuron (Lead Designer) to design the “hospital for the future”, Mazzetti and Arup will integrate forward-looking, innovative design, supporting UCSF’s commitment to world-renowned clinical research and training.
