    Cho, Jun-Young , Yang, Nae-won , 채종형 | 2008, 14(4) | pp.3~10 | number of Cited : 7
    Space program is not only meaning of area distribution on the planing of hospital architecture. The environment of health care such as medical examination, the level of service and constitution on hospital. And also space program implies the composition of space and plan of size in which are activity, required manpower and rooms, and mutual relation between spaces in hospital by quantitative analysis of the requered rooms and unit area. Accordingly space program is the data at the beginning of plan which can understand the pursuing direction of hospital at the beginning of plan. This study analyze how to express the role and function of hospital in space program by research of it in korean general hospital. Through those research, the purpose of this study is to sight the position of present hospital and produce the basic data for precise space program.

    A Study on the Service Area Planning of Elderly Care Facilities

    Choi, Jong-In , Lee,Nak-Woon | 2008, 14(4) | pp.11~20 | number of Cited : 1
    The demand of the care facilities for the elderly will be increased, because of the social changes which desire well organized medical treatment service. However, they have been illogically administrating such as preparing service at living space because of lacking places which provide living service. So the side of administration, it is necessary to have a security and improvement in that kind of needed place. The studies of elderly care facilities have been placing too much emphasis on the living space of the residential facilities and their welfare facilities compare with the service providing place which is ignored just as a part of the living space. This study focus on a situation of elderly care facilities and analyze a service space using in facilities, so it can be applied to service place plan for the future.

    A Study on the Changing Process in Hospital Architecture- A Case Study on the J University Hospital -

    Choi, Kwangseok | 2008, 14(4) | pp.21~30 | number of Cited : 0
    Domestic hospital architectures were developed with the nation's industrialization after 1960s. Particularly, with the rapidly growing healthcare demands according to The National Health Insurance Plan which was introduced in 1977 and expanded to entire nation in 1989, the number of healthcare facility is also increasing according to the expansion of the existing facilities and construction of new buildings. Now, twenty to thirty years were past since that growing period of healthcare architecture. Many hospitals are facing on the phase of restructuring and modernization for their resources. J university hospital is a representative case of hospital development which the growth of facility was stopped by insufficient site area. This study, analysing its past statistics and drawing data of that hospital, presents the characteristics of the changes and basic data of the master planning for the future hospital development.

    A Study on the Areal Analysis of the Sports Center for the Disabled User

    Ki-Chang Seong , Choul-Gyun Chai , Taesung Kang | 2008, 14(4) | pp.31~38 | number of Cited : 1
    As people's interest in the increase of individual leisure time and health grows, their interest in sports is also growing day by day to improve their standards of living. In the midst of the social changes, people's awareness of the disabled's sports activities is changing as well. However, the disabled's full access to public sports centers is restricted due to the shortage of facilities, area and available programs in public sports centers including community gymnasiums. In order to solve this problem, rehabilitation sports centers have been built as part of public sports centers, but the number of rehabilitation sports centers is still small. Besides, the disabled find themselves uncomfortable when using rehabilitation sports centers because most of them are outdated and too small in size. To make matters worse, sports centers for the use of the disabled only have a negative effect on the disabled's making inroads into society by hampering them from being a part of social unification. This study made a comparative analysis on the areal state of indoor gyms and swimming pools, which are the main areal factors of rehabilitation sports centers and public sports centers. Based on this analysis, this study aims to propose a sports center use plan for both the disabled and non-disabled. As a result, the total floor area ratios of indoor gyms for the disabled were found to be higher than those of public sports centers. This is because many indoor gyms for the disabled are not well equipped with resting areas, auxiliary or supporting areas. Regarding swimming pools for the disabled, their total floor area ratios and areas were found to be lower than those of public sports centers because, in many cases, these swimming pools are used for the rehabilitation of the disabled in rehabilitation sports centers. For this reason, swimming area for individual leisure activity or hobby is insufficient.

    A Study on the Proper Location of Ventilation Outlets and Inlets in the Germ Free Pigs' Room

    Kwon, Soon-Jung , 손덕영 , CHOI YUN HO | 2008, 14(4) | pp.39~46 | number of Cited : 0
    Construction and operation of Germ Free Pigs' facilities are very expensive because pigs' rooms and other major rooms of the facility require germfree environments. Especially, running the HVAC system of aseptic facilities requires a lot of expenses. However, proper location and efficient shape of outlets/inlets for the ventilation of the room can reduce the excessive running cost. In order to do that, this study proposes alternative location and shape of ventilation outlets/inlets to the existing design pattern in germfree pigs' room. The design condition of this study is the maintenance of adequate temperature(24℃), NH3 concentration level(below 1.5 ppm), and air stream speed(below .25m/sec) in the pigs' room for the summer and the winter together. As the Software Program, FLUENT(Ver. 6.2) has been used for the analysis of proposed ventilation patterns. In conclusion, wall inlets and ceiling inlet/outlet are advisable in summer, wall inlets and ceiling outlets is advisable in winter. As far as the shape is concerned, diffuser type for the ceiling outlet is desirable.

    A Study on Preconstruction Process in Support of Lean Project Delivery System- Case Study of Children,s Hospital at Bellevue, Wa, U.S.A.-

    Kim, Yong-Woo , KIM KWANG HO | 2008, 14(4) | pp.47~54 | number of Cited : 5
    Preconstruction process in a lean project delivery system was studied in one large healthcare project working for a general contractor. Researchers joined a new lean delivery project for approximately six weeks and participated in preconstruction process including design coordination, management coordination, and target costing while concurrently interviewing other project participants and employees, recording activity in meetings , and otherwise observing the process. The preconstruction process in lean project delivery system , called integrated project design, showed many benefits such as brining expertise of downstream players (i.e., mechanical and electrical contractors) into the design phase. However, lack of leadership and lack of design-integrator blocked the successful application of a new concept of design process.
