Student Project Competition

Help support and develop the next generation of NEHES members! NEHES student chapters and New England students in healthcare related fields have been invited to participate in a competition where they will design a predetermined healthcare facility from scratch. All aspects, from architectural, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, infection control, hospitality, interior design, and countless others will be expected and reviewed. In this session, the top three teams will present their work to Spring Seminar attendees and the winners will be determined by a panel of NEHES members.
