in 2005, later becoming a full-time employee
after graduating from the University of Louisville's Speed School of Engineering in 2009.
Currently, he serves as a senior project manager for CMTA's corporate office. His responsibilities include overseeing the engineering
firm's healthcare department and emerging
design concepts while leading other electrical
engineers throughout assigned projects. He
works closely with his team to establish project goals and seek new opportunities, while
also helping colleagues grow in their careers.

HEALTHCARE DESIGN INDUSTRY IN
2019?

One ongoing issue I find myself frequently concerned about is patient safety and regulatory
changes and how they affect behavioral health,
specifically. Keeping abreast of ever-evolving
regulatory conditions and product development is a constant challenge. However, I, along
with healthcare clients and design partners,
are seeking innovative solutions to address this
concern.

Sandrella: As a kid who was naturally drawn
to anything involving math or science, I knew
I had to find a career that allowed me to work
in the STEM field. Throughout my childhood,
I can vividly remember my scientific curiosity pushing me to learn how things are built
and operated. While attending college, my
undergraduate years solidified my dream of
becoming an engineer, but I struggled with
choosing a specific project pathway. It wasn't
until I joined CMTA and began solving healthcare project conflicts that I was drawn to the
healthcare sector. Now approaching 10 years
in the healthcare industry, my concern for patients' well-being drives me to design sound,
sustainable, innovative, and comfortable facilities. Since healthcare is continuously evolving, and so is the design process, the challenge
to stay ahead of that curve and solve the newest
issues constantly drives me.

I'm most proud of the way I managed the system engineering for River Parishes Behavioral Health Hospital, located in LaPlace, La.
This renovation project focused primarily on
improving the existing building with major
infrastructure replacements and repairing envelope issues. The result was a significant facilities upgrade. From the first day of team meetings to the last day of construction, I assured
the clients that we would transform the facility into an inviting place for people to receive
much-needed treatment and care. Although
the project's budget was unforgiving, we adopted creative methods to find efficient solutions.
By the end, my team and I successfully orchestrated multiple MEP system improvements
that required extensive site investigations and
use of old infrastructure to support the revamped architectural and programmatic goals.

Although behavioral health patient safety can
come across as a complex task, I believe issues
like regulatory changes can be resolved by using a holistic approach-specifically, involving
direct interface between the owner, team, and
manufacturing communities to produce solutions. To keep up with the evolving healthcare
project field, it's essential to address and approach all projects in unique and innovative
ways. I like to view the healthcare patient as
the "real" A/E/C master. On several occasions, patients who identify facility and/or
experience issues are the ones who ultimately
teach engineers new project concepts and approaches. For example, as more patients use
CMTA-designed buildings, we continuously
receive vital feedback in regards to patient
experience, comfort level, and preventative measures for patient and faculty errors.
To learn from them, I review every issue that
arises from three different viewpoints: the
patient, provider, and community members
directly affected by the project. By reviewing previously unexpected errors, the design
team, clients, and I can discuss all ideas for
resolutions.
