Specialist market intelligence

We have accumulated extensive market intelligence in the healthcare sector through our experience working on projects across a range of procurement routes. Our comprehensive database of costs, subcontractors and specialists means we can generate substantial financial and programme advantages for our clients without impacting on quality.

We also have an established supply chain of experienced healthcare professionals who provide support across a broad range of healthcare planning, design and delivery.

Healthcare construction services

We act in numerous management and technical roles – such as lead advisor, NEC supervisor, project management, cost control, and health and safety – on all types of projects. These include capital new-build primary care and major acute hospitals, primary care health centres, refurbishments and extensions, and regular repair and backlog maintenance works.

Our team also regularly instructs and manages specialist contractors in the installation of cutting-edge medical devices and equipment for the delivery of advanced treatments.

We have considerable experience working in acute healthcare environments. A thorough understanding of NHS procedures allows us to deliver projects successfully on live operational sites. 

Careful planning and coordination mean that new building works, extensions and refurbishments, as well as upgrades to shared infrastructure and services, can go ahead with minimal disruption to ongoing patient care.

We help our clients to confidently navigate current procurement initiatives in hospital construction and other healthcare projects.

Preparing the business case

Our team offers specialist consultancy services to support the strategic delivery of business cases, including drafting them on behalf of NHS Boards and Trusts.

We are fully conversant with the business case process following either HM Treasury The Green Book or Scottish Capital Investment Manual (SCIM) guidance, and have assisted Health Boards and Trusts through strategic assessments, initial agreement, outline and the full business cases.
