Lesson Learned/Best Practice

Additional information on front-end/onboarding for trade partners to better understand HCA Design standards; At initial Big Room we suggest a daylong session walking through the HCA Standards and HCA Vendor list as a team and determine specific requirements for the project at hand.  Understand what is important to the architect, engineer, owner, etc; process to document all design ideas, compare against HCA standard, and make decision to move forward to keep innovation of new ideas flowing; encourage an environment to question standards; show dollar, schedule impact, and can it be repeated.
