Our areas of healthcare expertise include:


Wards – Receptions – Hospital entrances – Treatment Rooms – Operating Theatres – Laboratories

Working in live and busy hospital and surgery environments, often within critical timescales, we design and deliver much-needed refurbishments and upgrades to existing healthcare facilities for the benefit of both patients and healthcare providers. We understand the niche challenges and care that come with such works, providing a sensitive, tidy, and safe approach at all times.


MRI LINAC Scanners – Diagnostic / Orthopaedic Centres – A&E departments – Mental Wellbeing facilities – Dementia Care

Over the last decade we have delivered and designed, numerous stand-alone buildings and adjoining centres, built bespoke to healthcare standards.  We understand the scope of work associated with these tailored schemes, from the consideration of patient wellbeing to functionality, and the practicality of installing large specialist healthcare equipment.


Specialist wards and departments – Orthopaedic Units – MRI Facilities

Whether long term or short term facilities, the installation of modular construction helps reduce cost, time and programme challenges within the difficult hospital and healthcare environment. Whether providing specialist units such as Covid-19 isolation wards or extensions to existing centres, our specialist team have had vast experience in the careful installation and integration of modular facilities in the grounds of a live hospital environment, minimising disruption time, as a high proportion of the works are undertaken off site, whilst minimising the carbon used within the construction process.


Staff and visitor car parks – Energy Centres

The expertise of our in-house civil engineering and design team, enables us to provide effective construction solutions, helping in the efficient running of healthcare provisions. Through partnership with the NHS England, we have designed and built a number of multi storey car parks at NNUH, Addenbrookes Hospital and North Middlesex University Hospital to cater for expanding visitor car parking needs.  Our experience also includes a new Energy Centre at Luton and Dunstable NHS Trust, providing sustainable solutions to energy- led facilities.


Charity Hospices – Nursing Homes – Care Homes – Assisted Living

We understand the sensitivity and complex requirements needed to design and build the very best specialist care facilities for all ages. Working closely with care teams, we respect the sensitive nature of these homes and the consideration to both the mental and physical needs of the residents and the staff, to ensure we build the most comfortable and practical provision possible.
