Healthcare facilities

Changes in lifestyle and demographics are driving new demands for healthcare services – and the healthcare facilities that support these services.

Early planning for scale and savings

The global population is evolving through changes in climate, lifestyle, urbanisation - as well as ageing rapidly in parts of the world. This impacts demand for healthcare facilities.

With many healthcare facilities having the benefit of scale, significant savings can be achieved in facility management and operations if carefully planned in the early stages of the project.
