Our design and construction methodology integrates areas of consideration such as hospital fitout accomodating various functions, modalities and spaces
These include diagnostic and treatment functions, such as clinical laboratories, imaging, emergency rooms, and surgery; hospitality functions, such as food service and housekeeping; and the fundamental inpatient care or bed-related function. This diversity is reflected in the breadth and specificity of regulations, codes, and oversight that govern hospital construction and operations.
Each of the wide-ranging and constantly evolving functions of a hospital, including complex mechanical, electrical, and telecommunications systems, requires specialized knowledge and expertise.
The basic form of a hospital is, ideally, based on its functions:
- bed-related inpatient functions
- outpatient-related functions
- diagnostic and treatment functions
- administrative functions
- service functions (food, supply)
- research and teaching functions
