Working as part of the Arup client advisory team, MJ Medical are the technical advisors to Alberta Health Services (AHS), overseeing the health facility planning and the equipment and technology design for the project.

We supported AHS in evaluating the clinical designs, drawings, and reports being developed by the design and construction team, ensuring they were fit for purpose from a health and equipment planning viewpoint. We provided technical information and advice in identifying and specifying leading diagnostic and treatment equipment modalities, ensuring the design was able to support cutting edge clinical functionality.
