Week 6 – Cameron Foster


This week I spent the majority of my time working on an EP Lab equipment change at MUSC. I started working on this project a few weeks ago and have been revisiting it as we receive feedback from engineers and equipment vendors on where items will be placed in the rooms and the proximity of equipment in relation to other equipment. The project has been difficult for me at times due to my lack of knowledge on this type of medical equipment, therefore I have had to refer to prior EP Labs that we have worked on.  I am hoping to have my current set of drawings marked up with red lines today so that we are able to move into CD’s soon.

I am also now enrolled in an in-house CA school that one of our principals has in place to help practicing architects and designers to better understand what goes on in the construction administration process. I have my first class today and I am excited to hear from a practicing architect outside of school.
