How we work

We know that you are under pressure to deliver your healthcare project in a timely and cost effective way. You will want to use a construction company with a proven track record of delivering highly technical projects with reassurance along the way that things are on track, that any disruption is minimised and that ultimately you get the quality you require.

Since most of our projects occur in and around busy clinical areas, we understand how to work in these demanding situations. We are sensitive to the environmental needs that busy medical facilities demand, naturally we understand how to work with your infection control professionals. In fact, careful consideration of these vital issues is the cornerstone of our tried and tested design process.

We understand the demands you may be under and our philosophy is to take as much of the stress away from you as we possibly can. To achieve this we offer a complete design and build service, managing your entire project from the initial design discussions through to commissioning and hand-over. Whilst the majority of our work is design and build, we are always happy to work as part of an existing team if you already have designers in place. Either way, we bring years of specialist healthcare expertise to every project, delivering quality and adding value wherever we can.

Whilst you would expect our design and build service to be delivered to realistic and competitive budgets, what might surprise you is the excellent finish quality that all our projects receive. We know that if high usage buildings are to be durable, pleasant to work in and cost effective then high quality furniture, fixtures and fittings are essential.

With a proven track record of delivering complex projects, particularly in the diagnostics field, we have the technical ability to deliver any healthcare project no matter how demanding. We know that constant consultation throughout the life of the project is important. It is our belief that by providing you with a dedicated project manager you will always know that the project is on track…and who to talk to when issues need resolving rapidly.

We design and plan Our team of architects, structural, mechanical and electrical engineers look at the feasibility of your project from a technical perspective. Using their expertise, key factors such as patient handling ergonomics, infection control and minimising patient and staff disruption are considered and designed into the overall plan. We can also advise on the types of fixtures and fittings you may need. As the planning phase develops, we may be able to offer options and alternatives by drawing on our expertise gained over many years. Through this approach we work with you to develop a viable project that can be constructed in a timely and cost effective way.

With an excellent supply chain of reliable companies, we are able to ensure that the quality of our finished projects is well above HTM¹ minimum requirements, and we manage the whole procurement process for you as well… which is one less thing for you to worry about. 1.

We construct Working closely with you, we use state of the art construction techniques to put the plans into practise. Over the years, our workforce has become used to operating to tight-timelines and working within the constraints of the healthcare environment. Naturally, there will be challenges along the way and we bring our specialist healthcare expertise to the fore when resolving any issues. Many of our projects, especially in the diagnostics field, require the installation of extremely heavy equipment such as MRI and CT scanners and we are experienced at managing the placement of such sensitive and valuable equipment. We communicate We believe that good communication is vital. Central to the success of our construction projects is the use of experienced project managers who are supported by our designers and engineers. Every one of our projects is assigned a dedicated project manager who gives the project the continuity it deserves, acting as the main point of contact throughout the duration of the programme. With years of experience working within the healthcare sector, all of our project managers understand working in busy hospitals and clinics, and recognise the pressures you may be under.

We commission and hand-over Our ‘turn-key’ projects are designed to ensure a seamless hand-over and that your new facility can be used with minimal disruption to yourselves. With our building warranty in place you can relax in the knowledge that you are in safe hands for the future. We are fully compliant All of our projects are fully compliant with CDM¹, HTM² and HBN³ guidelines and we have our own in house Health and Safety manager to ensure that our sites are fully compliant with current legislation. We have a philosophy of working safely, both for our workforce and those around us. We are proud to have an excellent Health and Safety record. In addition, we have our own waste management and recycling policies in place to ensure waste is handled correctly and that we adhere to all relevant guidelines related to construction industry environmental and sustainability policies. 1. CDM - Construction Design Management Guidelines. 2. HTM - Health Technical Memorandum. 3. HBN - Health Building Notes.

We fit out Once the heavy construction phase is over, our project manager continues to oversee the fitting out and finishing of the project, as well as the installation of any specialist equipment such as operating tables or diagnostic equipment. Over the years we have handled just about every kind of healthcare project and it is during this final phase that our renowned build and finish quality becomes apparent.
