Healthcare is about people: patients, staff and visitors. As one of the UK’s leading engineering practices involved in healthcare today, Cundall recognises that building design is an important element of any healthcare facility. The design must recognise wider issues beyond that of the actual building, and ensure that these designs are flexible, adaptable and future-proofed.

We have experience in working directly for NHS Trusts, Private Healthcare Organisations and PFI procurement projects, both as technical advisors and members of consortia. We are a Procure 22 Principal Supply Chain Member.
Internationally, we are also leading the way on sustainable design, for example, through our work on the site sustainability strategy for the Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, Australia.

To support the delivery of modern healthcare services we work with the project team to design buildings, that address key criteria, including:  

  • cost efficiency (capital and operational costs)
  • thermal comfort and daylighting
  • indoor air quality and infection control
  • maintainability and durability
  • constructability
  • flexibility and sustainability (energy, water and materials).

Cundall’s dedicated specialist healthcare group ensures consistent high quality delivery of healthcare design throughout the UK and overseas.
