The healthcare sector is currently facing one of its most challenging periods, with changes in structure and new technology systems altering the way things work.

The effects of the built environment on a patients’ health and wellbeing, and the mounting focus on sustainable buildings, facilities and services, are bringing a new range of complex planning, design and construction challenges for the NHS, public sector and private companies.

Whilst a pre-requisite in planning hospitals is that they be fit for purpose, it’s also important that flexibility is in-built. There is significant need to future-proof buildings to cope with the challenges of multi-function multi-occupancy departments, whilst ensuring the facility has a well designed internal environment to motivate and uplift staff, and encourage rest and recovery in patients.

We have brought together a comprehensive range of partitioning, wall and ceiling lining systems that have been extensively tested and have a proven track record of use in healthcare facilities, to help you design, build and operate healthcare environments.
