Healthcare

designing better patient outcomes and a healthier bottom line

Hospitals and health facilities are among the most complex buildings, and the systems to support them require specialized knowledge and expertise. Clinical and research functions, and the necessary support space, can have competing needs and priorities that are constantly changing. New technologies and new treatment methodologies place enormous demands on flexibility and reliability. Code requirements place necessary burdens on construction and operations. We bring the expertise and creativity to navigate these fundamental, and often conflicting, demands.

With more than 40 years of experience in global healthcare facilities, we recognize the impact of design on patient care, operations, risk reduction and revenue.

Our solutions support a healing environment serving patients, families, staff and the community. They are evidence of the powerful contribution design and engineering can make to the experience of health and healing in the physical environment. They reflect a balance between performance, durability, reliability and operational convenience with a healthy and comfortable environment that is energy-efficient and cost-effective to operate.
