On Wednesday, February 12, 2020, AIA Philadelphia hosted a lunch and learn panel discussion featuring contractors specializing in healthcare construction. The panel discussed trends and changes taking place in healthcare construction in the Philadelphia region. Panelists spoke frankly about issues such as implementing Integrated Project Delivery (IPD) processes, modular construction and prefabrication, and working with building regulations and inspectors.

An overall theme in all of the responses was the value of collaboration and communication, as well as the willingness of contractors to work with different partners to ensure the best product.
