The Health sector demands environments with uncompromised clinical efficiency, cleanliness and controllability, capable of meeting the constantly changing service demands within an ever tightening budgetary environment. With ageing estates, compromised by short term modification and a lack of strategic planning, this means that many Trusts have to work within old 19 century health complexes. Often the prominence and quality of these has been recognised by statutory listing, requiring high quality and innovative design solutions.
We have integrated design surveying and service engineering skills in house, to inform our specialist historic building team to find appropriate design solutions for health in historic buildings. Our master planning and strategic evaluation skills also ensure that appropriate development and disposal strategies are devised for strategic assets, in particular listed structures, to the maximum long term benefit for our clients.
