Our healthcare team offers a local service with global experience, and our extensive portfolio includes over 200 healthcare projects.

We deal with every aspect of healthcare design, including traditional procurement, managing contracts, ECI and PPP. We take a multidisciplinary approach, blending the experience and expertise of different members of our team – each of whom has their own specialist area – to provide an all-round design package to our customers.

Our people’s strong communication skills and collaborative culture means our teams bring together their ideas and knowledge to provide a tailor-made service for our clients. Clients have easy access to us through our local offices, whilst those offices draw on the strength of our global expertise.

Repeat business, building lasting relationships
We are proud that so much of our work is either repeat business or from customers who have come to us through word of mouth. We believe this high level of customer satisfaction is not only down to our expertise and excellent service delivery but is also because we pay attention to the details, and take care to communicate effectively within our teams and with our customers.

Healthcare today and tomorrow
Our engineers design and develop healthcare sector solutions that will meet immediate needs as well as future requirements. The medicine and healthcare sector changes frequently, and the need to develop facilities for the Department of Health and private sectors is vital in reducing later costs and disruption.

Our experience
Our portfolio includes several new-build and refurbishment works for Royal Children’s Hospital, Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre, Monash Children’s Hospital, Joan Kirner Women’s and Children’s Hospital and St Vincent’s Private Hospital.

Our teams
Each of our offices has a core group of dedicated engineers. They ensure projects are not only possible, but feasible. They are familiar with planning requirements and laws at local and national levels and are qualified to carry out all relevant assessments to ensure the smooth-running of planned developments, helping customers every step of the way.
