"Healthcare is a priority sector for Core Associates and the team has extensive experience
ranging over primary care, acute facilities, mental health and Care Homes."
Our core capabilities include design inputs at all key stages, design and technical knowledge covering all the key deliverables for health sector projects and the healthcare team is conversant with statutory requirements and the more specific guidance as published by DoH, National Care Standards Commission, Care Commission in Scotland and Health Facilities Scotland applicable on health and care sector projects.
The practice uses NHS ADB for all project briefing including room layouts and this programme interfaces with specifications and production information. We also use Sketchup to illustrate rooms three dimensionally and find this a very valuable visualisation tool when dealing with user groups.
Strategic inputs for our healthcare clients have included inputs to clinical and property strategies, masterplanning, business case development and estate and site evaluation through a developed analysis methodology.
The list of Healthcare projects the team has been involved with is comparable to many of the larger practices and Core Associates provide our clients with the actual people who have worked on and delivered many of our healthcare facilities around the country.
