We are working with healthcare clients to build and enhance major hospitals and care facilities in order to create world-class environments to improve patient outcomes.


Building resilience in the healthcare sector

From major hospitals providing acute care to mental health services and community care facilities, the healthcare sector is evolving. Advances in medical research and technologies are helping develop new patient-centric approaches and tackle such global challenges as population growth, obesity, longevity, dementia, mental health and pandemics.

While nations and healthcare providers have varying challenges and resources, all share a focus on improving patient outcomes and quality care, delivered as efficiently as possible. In many developed nations, there is a drive for smarter facilities, more integrated models of care and upgrading and development of facilities. In other nations, such as China, effective delivery of large-scale new hospitals is the priority.

The COVID-19 pandemic has placed unprecedented demand on healthcare services and accelerated the pace of change. Future resilience of services is a concern for governments, public and private healthcare providers and other stakeholders.

Healthcare spending is forecast to reach 10.2 percent of GDP across OECD countries by 2030, raising concerns about economic sustainability. Constrained financial resources demand maximum capital and operational efficiency in healthcare estates. The global imperative to reduce carbon emissions is increasing the focus on energy efficiency, presenting particular challenges for existing estates.
