Preventing Condensation in Healthcare Environments:  Understanding Communication Between Spaces, Environment, and People


Achieving proper enclosure performance requires an understanding of the interior operating environment.  Due to the inherent nature of healthcare facilities, one building can house multiple program types with varying interior requirements for temperature, relative humidity, pressurization, and/or ventilation rates. 

Given this, a one-size-fits-all approach to enclosure design may not be appropriate when considering optimal thermal performance and condensation prevention.  RRJ Building Enclosure Specialists, Sarah Flock and Andrea Baird's article in the recent issue of Medical Construction & Design magazine addresses the unintentional effects of these environmental conditions on the potential for condensation formation.
