Functional Planning & Design
HMS’s approach to healthcare planning and design is operationally led and evidenced based, driven by its focus on people, functionality and site. These are the key considerations in the creation of an appropriate and therapeutic environment.
The identification and supply of appropriate medical equipment is a complex operation. It involves liaison with architects, structural engineers, M & E consultants, clinical staff and the project management team.
HMS has many years’ experience in this field and can bring financial benefit to the project through its substantial purchasing power.
HMS is totally manufacturer independent, which ensures that the most appropriate, value-for-money equipment is selected. Medical equipment input is necessary from the earliest stage of design to ensure the facility provides the correct envelope and range of building services to satisfy the requirements of both basic and sophisticated equipment.
