Dipping to Offer Expertise on Preventing Waterborne Infections, Healthcare Design Amid Pandemic

3rd Annual Watts Healthcare Symposium to tackle variety of topics.

Amid a pandemic, there are few areas more important than healthcare. ESD has always been involved in the space, but we have gone into overdrive since the coronavirus arrived. We have helped design a 3,000-bed healthcare facility at McCormick Place and revised systems and infrastructure to allow a nationally recognized academic medical center to participate in meetings, conferences, and discussions outside of its facility – conversations that saved lives.

James Dipping will offer his healthcare insights across four panels during the 3rd Annual Watts Healthcare Symposium. “Preventing Waterborne Infections During COVID-19” will take place Nov. 10. Dipping will no doubt touch upon the importance of choosing the right plumbing fixtures, as he highlighted in his piece for HVAC & Plumbing Product News.

The other panels Dipping is participating in are “Next Gen Facilities in a Post-COVID Health Environment” (Dec. 1), “Healthcare Design from a Facility Manager’s Perspective” (Dec. 8) and “Consequences of Poor Design” (Dec. 15).
