From design brief development to medical equipment planning, we help design hospitals, clinics and other healthcare facilities which support clinical excellence.
Our health service planning outputs form a fundamental part of the business case development process for a new facility. We lead or support the various stages of this process, coordinating and inputting into the assessment of strategic, economic, commercial, financial, and management components.
Our clinical design briefs serve as the reference point of our client’s vision throughout the development of a healthcare facility. Combining operational principles with a schedule of areas and functional adjacency concepts, they act as a fulcrum, translating the function of a building into its form.
From initial concept sketches to detailed drawings, we work alongside the design team to ensure that the vision captured in the brief is realised in the final design.
We employ sophisticated tools to create and manage the extensive room-by-room data generated through the iterative design process. The design team and client can access our data sheets online and, where needed, add input.
Our room by room equipment schedules support clinical best practice and incorporate the most advance medical technologies. We detail the design impact and requirements for the equipment, including MEP and structural, as well as provide radiation, laser, and MR protection advice.
Our complex database systems give us the ability to provide commercial stakeholders with equipment cost models that report against a multitude of parameters. These accurately capture the complex changes in the equipment content during the design development process, informing affordability considerations and analysing the effects of decisions made.
We support the design team by producing equipment layout drawings in 2D and BIM format. Our designs maximise the effectiveness and efficiency of clinical rooms , particularly those that are complex and high risk.
