Healthcare is facing unprecedented challenges with constrained budgets and increasing demand. Meeting these challenges requires a creative approach maximising the opportunity of the existing estate to create flexible, technology enabled patient centred environments that support innovative models of care.

Working on over 70 healthcare projects a year our experienced team are continually engaging with and adapting to current healthcare trends to support our new and long standing clients. We work collaboratively with clinical and facilities management teams to understand their requirements to provide creative, cost effective solutions.

Our experience includes strategic masterplanning, Acute care, Mental health, Specialist healthcare, Community and Social care, Primary and Private healthcare. We work within framework agreements with clients and contractors, providing not only architectural design but also a complete package of complementary services that offer real value. These include project management, strategic estates advice, cost advice, CDM co-ordination and BREEAM assessments as well as landscape architecture, building surveying and interior design.

BIM. All design proposals will be modelled in 3D from the start of the process.

Very quickly these will provide accurate, measurable models that can be developed into complete detailed and scheduled designs. Our BIM model allows us to employ user-friendly design visualisation methods to help explain the hospital environment across all aspects, including: interior design and finishes; equipment loading and placement; wayfinding; and environmental/controls systems. This benefits the client and user-groups in enabling them to truly understand in detail the building they are going to receive and occupy, prior to the commencement of construction.

Clinical Planning. Getting to know the end users well is crucial for delivering a successful project that meets expectations.

Properly engaging with stakeholders in a meaningful way, in an environment which is relaxed and open is key to teasing out the issues which are important. We will make our interactions with the end-users friendly, non-technical and supportive. We will use a variety of collaborative communication methods to encourage enthusiastic and relevant responses to inform the emerging design. These techniques will help to challenge the and will allow a meaningful brief to emerge.
