BAM Community

In addition to her role as BAM principal, Pamela Cole is a certified yoga instructor and shares her passion for yoga with the office.

Each yoga session has a theme, and the theme for the recent sessions focused on BAM community.

Pamela opened the yoga session by explaining the origins of the name BAM. BAM does not stand for anything – it is not the initials of the founders nor is it the name of any one person. Instead, we are BAM, and it symbolizes the talented and inspiring people that comprise our team.

Above are two yoga moves that Pamela has introduced to our team over the January and February yoga sessions. Much like BAM’s approach to projects, successful execution requires strong communication, trust in those around you, and smooth collaboration.

BAM’s community yoga was featured on Defy Daily.

Thank you, Pamela, for providing an opportunity for reflection and team bonding.

Improving Experiences Through Design: Yale Teen Center

Do your little bit of good where you are.
It’s those little bits of good put together that overwhelm the world.
– Desmond Tutu, Emeritus Archbishop

BAM’s goal is to contribute to making the world a better place through the power of design, and we are proud to celebrate the completion of the new Teen Center at Yale New Haven Health. The new center is the resulting collaboration between Yale New Haven Health, The Who’s charity Teen Cancer America and Lauren Telesz, a cancer survivor whose passion raised a majority of the project’s funding.  The funding was supplemented by a long-term donor to Yale.

An exciting expansion at Yale New Haven Health, this center focuses on the needs of a unique and often overlooked demographic – teenage cancer patients. At its core, the Lauren Telesz Smilow Teen Center is a place for hospital bound teens and young adults to go to do what people that age want to do… socialize, explore, imagine, and grow.

Everyone at BAM is proud to be part of the team involved to make this dream a reality.

Teen Cancer America features the opening on their website, here.

We welcome you to view the gallery below, which features photos from the ribbon cutting ceremony and additional photos of the space.

BAM: Solving Complex Design Problems

Ascension&StVincent_graphic_blog

SOLVING COMPLEX DESIGN PROBLEMS

Collaborating with St. Vincent’s Medical Center, BAM designed a high-end hybrid operating room for their Bridgeport hospital.  Marrying hospitality with hard science resulted in the patient entering into an EP lab outfitted with relaxing, spa-level amenities.  Upon discovering that surgery is needed, the space is instantly transformed into a sterile operating room.

The capacity to examine and perform surgery in one room resulted in reduced patient stress, the ability for doctors to provide more efficient treatment, and the hospital to gain higher patient throughput and profitability.  A win-win-win for all parties involved.
