Building a healthcare facility, whether it’s an acute care hospital, medical office building, skilled nursing facility, outpatient clinic or state-of-the-art treatment facility, requires highly specialized experience. These structures are designed in accordance with complex regulations and require a detailed understanding of medical procedures. We understand that design of these ‘healing environments’ call for considerations of vibration control, radiation shielding, hygienic shapes, but most of all: flexibility.
Multi-disciplinary design pays off here because of the complex integration of structural, mechanical and electrical elements due to the vast amount of medical equipment.
Because of the speed of technological advances, health care facilities must be designed to accommodate flexibility that will be required in the future. With our in depth understanding of these design and construction requirements, we are able to balance budget, time schedule, and the use of environmentally friendly materials.
Of course fire safety is also very important. Not only as far as materials and design, but at least as important are emergency plans, fire installations, alarms systems.
