Health and Education

Healthcare portfolios are often multi-functional be it primary or intensive care, laboratory, research or pharmaceutical establishments. HDR | Hurley Palmer Flatt’s experience, expertise and drive provides our clients with absolute confidence in all these areas of design, creating leading, technically advanced, health and education facility centres.

Projects are living breathing entities and like real life, we perform best when we communicate. Our teams of engineering experts will engage early with your project planners, architects, designers and support teams by establishing early stake holder relationships and identify key project milestones and deliverables.

In the modern era, funding for new hospital projects comes from a variety of sources. Either directly from hospital trusts, private healthcare groups or privately funded initiatives within the NHS.

Although the basic principles are the same, the approach is different. It is important to have engineers with an extensive background in healthcare.

Schools and universities are now under even greater cost pressure with public sector budgets cuts, yet expectations are even higher on the need for higher quality facilities to attract students. For example, all areas including lecture theatres and classrooms, libraries and media resources, and research facilities require higher levels of technical sophistication for environmental controls and energy management. Commitments for carbon reduction also mean universities in particular need to consider how to approach sustainable development while still lowering operational costs for energy.
