Video Explores the iEXCEL at University of Nebraska Medical Center

Yesterday I shared a series of articles about the University of Nebraska’s ambitious project to improve the quality of healthcare education through simulation and advanced visualization technology. Today, take a look at this video that explores the university’s forthcoming Interprofessional Experiential Center for Enduring Learning (iEXCEL) and its home, the Davis Global Center. You’ll see and hear about:

  • The different medical practitioners who will train and learn using iEXCEL technology
  • Design engineers who will work with doctors to create
  • Huddle and collaboration spaces and the holographic theater
  • The Davis Global Center’s ability to reach learners around the world
  • Surgical labs and patient simulators

You’ll also get a quick peek at the visualization labs, including a five-sided laser immersive space, curved 3D CAD wall, and iEXCEL Helix.

AVI-SPL is the integrator for this project, with a track record of successful visualization technology integrations for other schools. Call us at 866-559-8197 or sales@avispl.com.

Maximize Office Real Estate With 3-30-300 Rule

To help decision-makers determine where their real-estate cost savings will be most valuable, Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL)—a global professional services company specializing in real estate—established the 3-30-300 formula. The idea is that there is an average order of magnitude for a company’s cost per square foot—$3 in utilities, $30 in rent, and $300 in payroll.

A 10% increase in energy efficiency translates to a $.30/sq ft cost savings. A 10% reduction in rent yields a $3.00 cost savings. A productivity improvement of 10% equates to $30/sq ft of value.

This formula demonstrates why changes to the human experience has the greatest impact. Watch the video below to learn more. Our page, “Maximize Real Estate Savings With the 3-30-300 Rule,” includes a form so you can talk to us about reducing your real estate costs. To learn more about reducing real estate costs, visit our resource page —  Workplaces Strategies for Commercial Real Estate and Facilities Professionals.
