- Appointing us
Healthcare has been a consistent and substantial portion of our services offer since the practice was formed in 1958 both in the NHS and private sectors. We have had the opportunity to successfully deliver some of the most complex, challenging and largest capital value projects in the industry both in the UK and internationally. Our experience covers all acute services, specialist hospitals, mental health facilities and primary care.
Projects range from major new builds, estates rationalisations, departmental refurbishments, infrastructure and system upgrades to backlog maintenance. All delivered using a variety of procurement routes including:
+ Private Finance Initiative
+ National NHS frameworks such as P21/
P21+/P22 and Shared Business Services
+ Direct Frameworks
+ Direct appointments to Private providers
Our primary role is in delivering designs from inception to successful completion either working direct for the end client or as part of a contractor led team. We also have in depth experience of preparing Employers Requirements, Technical Advisory roles, NEC supervisor and commissioning management.
All our healthcare team are members of the Institute of Healthcare Engineering and Estates Management (IHEEM) and as a business we were delighted to be named Consultant of the Year in 2018. We are also Corporate Members of IHEEM and Design in Mental Health Network (DIMHN) and are active participants in both.
Our teams understand all the unique and expansive standards that apply to healthcare and have assisted in authoring updates. We take a proactive approach in applying these to environments which have constantly evolved over the years. By setting detailed compliance schedules we help manage risk, expectations and drive future planning.
At every level we question what has previously been the standard, seeking to always raise the bar and drive down both energy and carbon using bespoke proven modelling.
BIM is a term often used but more often misunderstood.
Our starting point is always to listen to what our Clients want from BIM and then develop a service that matches this.
It is all about collaboration with end users, maintainers, designers...
We are committed to achieving our Sustainability at Heart agenda, by aligning our operations to the UN SDG’s and are on the path to becoming a net zero organisation by 2030.
