Buildings in the Healthcare Sector

For highly specialised buildings like hospitals and laboratories,we offer all planning services from a single source. With this consistent, holistic approach we are your experienced partner and expert in all phases of a construction project.

We realise hospitals of all levels of medical care, including university hospitals that offer the maximum level of care, rehabilitation clinics and psychiatric specialist clinics. We also plan retirement and nursing homes, facilities for dementia patients and assisted living facilities, both for public-sector customers and private clinic operators.

Hospitals and other buildings for healthcare not only need to meet legal guidelines, but also the requirements of a wide range of different groups of people. These needs are as diverse and the users themselves. With our high standards, we pay attention to functionality and efficiency in all areas: for qualified staff and patients and for technical staff, suppliers and visitors, e.g. with well-planned short paths for patient transport.

The psychological well-being of patients supports their recovery. This is why we develop light and colour concepts for interior design that help with orientation and have a positive effect on patient health
