One of the latest trends in healthcare facilities is connecting with nature using windows and natural daylight, according to an article on the Healthcare Construction + Operations web site.
Not only does introducing more natural light benefit the patients in their rehabilitation efforts, but it also provides energy and cost savings to the hospital. The glass provides increased energy efficiency and reduced HVAC requirements.
The use of electrochromic glass has been gaining momentum as hospitals continue to install more glass walls. This glass allows hospitals to program the windows to tint on demand or follow the path of the sun.
It eliminates the need for blinds or curtains and is helpful for maintenance and cleanliness.
