Improvements in life expectancy and a growing UK population combined with an increasing pressure on resources is a key challenge facing the health and social care sector today. The need to extend existing facilities whilst offering innovations in care means that health organisations are constantly needing to review, maintain and update the properties and sites that provide our essential services.
We work with clients and the planning authorities from project conception to ensure that any requirement for work relating to the historic environment is design solution led. We help to make the best of our clients’ existing property portfolios through the sympathetic management of their heritage assets, in many cases seamlessly fusing old and new development. We also provide support in incorporating heritage and sense of place into the fabric of new facilities through the promotion of community and public engagement.
