Element 8 design

  1. 1. At Element 8 Design we believe that design is more than aesthetic execution. The design of space directly impacts health & well-being, productivity, and the bottom line. Everyone thrives in their own element.

  2. 2. GUIDING PRINCIPLES Sustainability Element 8 Design is committed to our clients and the communities they serve by designing responsibly. With a LEED accredited professional on staff, we are prepared to aid our client's decisions by identifying the most sustainably viable and appropriate options for surface materials, lighting, furniture, energy efficiency, indoor air quality and more. Evidence-Based Design Credible, peer-reviewed research informs our design decisions. This ensures solutions that promote quality, safety, productivity, health, accessibility, and an enhanced bottom line. The designers at Element 8 Design work hard to stay informed of current research and implement findings to create highly functional spaces. Collaboration Successful realization of any built vision relies on effective interdisciplinary collaboration. The board of trustees, patients, vendors, caregivers, family members, community partners & organizations, donors, and designers are a few of the key stakeholders that form the backbone of many healthcare building projects. Flexibility The rapid cycle of medical and technological innovation has long dictated the need for flexible spaces. Master planning, loose-fit design, and attention to adaptable and convertible environments allows for long-term occupation of spaces able to dynamically accommodate functional and adjustable use.
  3. 3. Efficiency Understanding work and patient flow is key to designing efficient healthcare environments and patient-centered care. We strive to understand the processes that dictate movement so that we can plan for effective wayfinding, durable surface materials, and unobtrusive furniture, both free-standing and architecturally integrated. We aim to provide space that optimizes the entire system of care. Wellness Our goal at Element 8 design is to create environments that aid in the healing process and promote wellness for all users. We understand the calming effects of the natural environment, are proficient in our understanding of color theory & implementation and carefully choose materials that will not hinder indoor air quality. Safety & Accessibility Patient and staff safety initiatives are an important part of the design process. As many organizations move toward decreased staff & patient injuries and minimizing nosocomial infections, we are prepared to offer solutions in the built environment that support these goals. As part of the safety culture, the implementation of universal design, in conjunction with ADA guidelines, ensures user-friendly environments that minimize risk to staff members, caregivers, visitors, and patients.
