Healthcare Project of the Year
The pressure on the UK’s healthcare sector is huge. With changing demographics and budgets always a focus, the public purse has to deliver better, higher quality and more cost-effective buildings for patients and staff. This category celebrates those projects that have used offsite technology to create a newbuild facility, a retrofit/refurbishment or extension in a streamlined way, on-time and on-budget reducing impact on clinical care. The facility can be for any type of healthcare, primary care, GP surgery, hospitals, care homes or facilities catering for age related/specialist needs. Patient, staff and visitor experience is at the heart of successful healthcare projects, and the winner must prove that it has met the healthcare provider and/or the NHS Trust’s expectations in providing a sustainable, energy efficient and cost-effective contemporary building, whilst demonstrating how quality, cost-predictability, budget constraints, speed of installation and high levels of site-sensitivity have been achieved.
