Underpinning all our healthcare design is a desire to shape New Zealand’s healthcare delivery through the creation of caring and supportive environments.
Whatever the scale of the project, from the refurbishment of Starship Hospital’s Day Stay Unit to the construction of Waipapa, Christchurch Hospital’s Acute Services Building, that goal remains the same. We want to provide the best people-centred design possible.
How we do that – for hospice care, mental health, cancer care, stroke rehabilitation, community and regional hospitals – stems from our commitment to collaboration, trust and respect.
Central to our healthcare design philosophy is the understanding of the unique needs of each facility’s user groups. Through extensive user group consultation, we ensure our collaboratively constructed environments provide future-focused solutions and achieve the right mix of facilities and services.
We apply our depth of knowledge and design intelligence to the strategic methodology behind all health projects. That enables us to push the boundaries of healthcare design while incorporating current models of care into our design solutions.
Our long-standing relationships with many of New Zealand’s healthcare providers sees us take a proactive leadership role, liaising with project partners, consultants and stakeholders to ensure the co-ordination and consistency of technical solutions and specialist requirements for successful completion.
From the master planning of holistic healthcare environments to the conceptualisation of detailed healthcare facilities, robust staging strategies for capital investment projects through to our effective and efficient asset management planning, our collaborative design practice supports future development and facilities management which allow for the ongoing delivery of patient-centric care.
