SWVS 2021 Hospital Design Satellite Session

This year BDA will be hosting a FREE 3-hour Hospital Design Satellite Session: DESIGNING and BUILDING the FACILITY you can AFFORD and PROSPER in.

Thursday September 23, 2021 from 2:00 PM to 5:00 PM
Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center – Room 006 A

The Southwest Veterinary Symposium is always a great event with live sessions, interactive labs and an exhibit hall for the veterinary community. This year BDA and our construction partners CMP, Inc. will be sponsoring a Hospital Design Satellite Session within the conference that will be FREE to attendees*!

The event will be a 3-hour assembly of TED-style presentations to address the concerns veterinarians must face for a successful design and construction project. The sessions, presented by leading industry experts, will be valuable for all types of projects - freestanding buildings, renovations or leaseholds. Attendees will leave with tools to move forward in their decision making, and design ideas from leading-edge facilities that they can consider incorporating.

Experts will be on-hand to provide guidance in hospital design, financing, acoustic and odor control, and contracting for construction.

BDA will also be providing free 30-minute veterinary architect consultations to attendees on Friday, Saturday and Sunday following Thursday’s presentations. Speak to an architect and bring your questions, ideas and sketches!
