GRAEF Healthcare – How can we help you?
One of the statements I hear from my clients from time to time is “I didn’t know that you offered that service.” That’s always a bit of a surprise. (Even if it is an understood one.) We offer many services in a lot of different markets to both private and public clients. So I understand how all of our services and markets are not always known to all of our clients.
I’ve been at GRAEF for 15 years now with most all of those years being spent in the Healthcare market working as a structural engineer. Now as the Market Team Leader for the Healthcare Group it is my responsibility to educate our clients about the services we offer in that market so I never have to hear one of them say, “I didn’t know you did that.” If I hear that, either, haven’t done my job or I have to do my job, depending on how you look at it.
With this being my first blog on Life is GRAEF (first blog ever as a matter of fact,) it felt like a good opportunity to give you a brief synopsis of GRAEF Healthcare and what we can do to help you. We offer healthcare services in structural, civil, mechanical and electrical engineering, plumbing design, parking structure design and layout, traffic studies, landscape architecture, environmental services, commissioning, sustainable and field services and all of the subspecialties within those disciplines. (Quite a list!)
In future blogs, I intend to use this space to answer some common healthcare design questions, share our successes, review our lessons learned and share other interesting topics in the world of healthcare design. In the meantime, if you have any healthcare engineering related questions please feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, see me on LinkedIn at http://www.linkedin.com/in/dkilbert and follow me on Twitter @DKilbert.
