Designing MUSH Facilities is a three-part e-book that explores the various factors design professionals need to consider when working on municipal, university, school, and hospital (MUSH) building projects. This Construction Canada digital supplement on institutional architecture illustrates:

  • how the architectural team for the Teck Acute Care Centre at B.C. Children's Hospital in Vancouver went beyond code requirements to create a model of resilient design and ensure the facility remains operational during natural disasters;
  • the importance of acoustically balanced spaces in MUSH facilities, and explores new materials available in the commercial ceiling space to reduce excessive noise and sound reverberation; and
  • the use of advanced doors and grilles to safeguard building occupants from extreme weather events, restrict the spread of toxic smoke in multilevel facilities, and construct safer parking structures.
