By working on healthcare projects for already 40 years we have gained great amounts of experience and knowledge in this sector/their specific needs. Our expertise lies in the translation and detailed implementation of the requirements of a client and develop a great building, with a healing environment and an appropriate indoor climate.
In hospitals, we have virtually built or rebuilt all departments. We work hospital-wide, but also at the level of a department specifically. Because of this we are familiar with the process of many medical specialties and techniques associated with the various departments. We have knowledge of materials, finishes, detailing, engineering and other specific requirements of the departments. We also have knowledge of the logistical link between the specialties themselves so we have a clear plan on how to create a complex (and complete) set of requirements and thus a functional building. We provide drawings from the first sketch to the construction drawings. Good coordination with the installation engineering and construction is of utmost importance.
In addition to hospital construction, we have experience in mental healthcare with its specific problems. We have closed-clinics built with separation rooms but also outpatient treatment centers that are more open but need to offer privacy to the clients. We have also realized facilities with hoisting systems for people with multiple complex disabilities and homes for the disabled with visual impairments, that were setup in a way that they could live as independently as possible.
We are also active in parental care, we have some plans for homes for the elderly, where accessibility and self-reliance is very important. In these projects additional amenities are also planned, such as home care, home automation and custom furnishings such as high / low countertops, so that the elderly can continue to live independently for as long as possible. When independent living is no longer possible, is a nursing home is an option. We have achieved a nursing home where the elderly receive intensive care, but what is utmost important is that people feel at home. The interior design is an important tool. We as an office, provide the structure as well as the appearance of a building that is at least equally important for the well being of the user as well as functionality.
We also have knowledge of highly advanced new developments in the field of specialized medical developments such as proton accelerator.
This equipment requires special structural modifications and installations with which experience has already been gained.
