DESIGN & BUILD

A healthcare facility’s design establishes the basis for safe and effective care within its environment. As the market shifts from the government to the private sector, there's a larger emphasis on fit-for-purpose, efficiency and financially responsible designs. This implies that we analyse not only first costs but more importantly life cycle costs. Designing and executing construction of a healthcare project requires the collaboration of appropriate expertise.

This session will discuss the lessons learned as we strive to design and construct “fit-for-purpose” facilities, as well as the impacts of various construction elements such as engineering, operations and technology have on the healthcare business.
