Looking into the future is crucial for clients in order to keep buildings sufficiently flexible to cope with future expansion. Our Logistics teams evaluate the various possibilities of different room locations in order to accommodate future changes in layouts. This can affect structures such as movable façades, wall materials and load bearing floors and ceilings.
A driving force behind many changes in healthcare patterns can be put down to advances in technology. New technology is being rapidly adopted in healthcare, which is leading to changes in the way facilities are designed and built. ‘Robots’ or automated guided vehicles (AGV) and pneumatic tube transport are just a few examples of systems that are changing designs.
There are many instances that show that hospital Logistics have a measurable impact on clinical outcomes and cost. The resulting designs support clinicians in fulfilling their role and ensure a more positive experience for patients and visitors in difficult times.
