Health

Market Overview

Improving the standard of the country’s healthcare service is always top of any government’s priority list and since the launch of PFI schemes and other private funded investments, construction activity in this sector has soared with the construction of more effective and modern healthcare buildings. Although proposed budget cuts and the planned abolition of Primary Care Trusts in favour of GP commissioning consortia is set to change the funding and nature of new projects, the construction industry still has a central role to play with collaboration and innovation proving just as vital both on and off site.

The successful creation of this new generation of healthcare buildings is often at the mercy of strict budget constraints, lengthy planning approvals, tight timescales, uncompromising environmental targets and quite often, the various logistical issues of working near an operational facility.
