A model of collaborative working

The Be Collaborative Contract is a new form of contract for construction projects that underpins collaborative behaviour. This scheme at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital was one of three piloted in the UK to test this way of working.

This scheme meets all clinical requirements, providing a new integrated facility for maternity, gynaecology and neonatology services. It achieves critical operational relationships while maximizing patient comfort, natural ventilation and daylighting.
