Program Descriptions: (Counts toward one AIA HSW LU) Storage secured will identify major storage concerns within law enforcement facilities. While identifying major storage concerns (specifically evidence), this presentation will also identify storage solutions for those concerns that maximize efficiency, save floor space, reduce construction costs, and keep criminals behind bars. Finally, the presentation will touch upon other major planning considerations for these facilities, such as floor loading and LEED® certification.

Program Descriptions: (Counts toward one AIA HSW LU) Planning spaces for higher education environments is not just about designing classrooms: A campus is like a small city, with people working, exercising, learning, performing, and even seeking medical attention within its grounds. We’re here to help you design facilities that manage risk, improve efficiencies, and enhance utilization of existing spaces across campus. This presentation outlines trends and challenges that are influencing campus decision-makers, demonstrates how thoughtful storage solutions can help create highly functional interior spaces, and briefly discusses how smart storage can help attain LEED® compliance.

Floor Loading 101

Program Description:(Counts toward one AIA/CES HSW LU) Speed up the building design and decision-making process by avoiding unnecessary delays and changes with an ability to identify the new construction building types most suitable for high-density storage. Moreover, several strategies exist to accommodate heavy storage system loads. These include the ability to reorient, redistribute, relocate, reconfigure and reinforce. This program contains an illustrated case study as well as several examples of post construction modifications and supplements for high-density storage.

Program Format/Length: Sixty-minute PowerPoint slide presentation including questions and answer period.

Program Description:(Counts toward one AIA HSW LU) In this presentation, we will follow medical supplies throughout the Acute Care environment in order to see how storage location configuration, if correctly designed, can influence staff functions, staff efficiency, staff productivity and ultimately... patient care. In addition, careful planning can produce marked improvements in inventory control--a prime importance in healthcare facilities today. Learn how to bring storage closer to the point-of-care, plan storage with sustainability in mind and understand the various storage planning considerations.

BIM Libraries

bim library for police and law enforcement evidence and gear lockers

Testimony

“As a BIM Manager, I have been making BIM library families from scratch and creating/adapting vendor families for years for a variety of commercial projects. Today I was literally breathless when first seeing the quality of families from Southwest Solutions Group. They have real parametric controls, are conscientious of the digital weight and aesthetically wowing. Not only are these families better than any vendor I have seen… I couldn’t have done it better myself! Fantastic work!”
