Health facilities are amongst the most complex of building types and their design is controlled by a detailed regulatory and planning process. It is therefore essential to establish and maintain effective communication with the providers of health services, to ensure that each facility serves its specific use. Suters Architects has a firm appreciation of this process.

Whilst each project is unique, there are requirements common to all health facilities. The capital cost of the building must be economical; the structure and internal planning must be flexible to allow for future changes; and recurrent costs for building operation, maintenance and staffing must be minimised. Our extensive experience of the planning and pre-design stages enables us to offer clients a comprehensive assessment of the project in question, whether starting with a blank canvas or adapting an existing site.

We have also developed a strong design methodology to efficiently collect, process and interpret the needs of the users. Our team is committed to research and training and we subscribe to health industry periodicals, attend conferences and visit recent significant projects in order to maintain our awareness of developments in health care design, both here and abroad. Current projects are regularly reviewed to ensure that the client’s needs are being met, and we undertake post-occupancy evaluation to ensure that lessons learned from past projects are applied to future projects.

Suters Architects understands health projects. We have the expertise, resources and systems to provide a facility which reflects the needs of users, and will effectively serve future users.
