CEDAR RAPIDS, IA--Four new articles that examine architecture, low voltage, fire and life safety, and green issues within the healthcare industry have been added to NSCA's building information resource web portal, the AE Toolkit.

The articles are in response to changing trends in the healthcare industry. A growing field ripe with opportunities, healthcare construction project starts are estimated to top $60 billion a year by 2010 according to data from Reed Construction.

"NSCA members can use the AE Toolkit to improve their relationships with architects, engineers and contractors in the building industry," said Chuck Wilson, NSCA executive director.

The AE Toolkit contains more than 300 articles on best practices within the building industry. The four new articles include:

* Electromagnetic Fields Force Change in Health Care Design
* Energy Efficiency Prescriptions for Health Care Facilities
* Healthy and Green
* Managing Fire System Upgrades for Health Care Facilities

"This updated content helps architects and their consultants in the commercial electronic systems field design better healthcare facilities," said Craig Park, vice president and chief marketing officer for LEO A DALY. "The better we know our clients' technology views, the better we can create designs to meet their needs."

Unique in the commercial electronic systems industry for its practice development resources, NSCA's AE Toolkit provides marketing strategies, engineering design guidelines, and resources for systems integrators and contractors, independent design consultants, equipment manufacturers and independent reps.

Registration for the site is free. Registered users receive access to free content; NSCA members may access both the free and premium content.
