Design the optimum healthcare environment
The strain that a growing and ageing population will have on healthcare services will be detrimental if buildings and facilities are not designed accordingly to deal with such an increase in demand. With a growing population, healthcare facilities must also change, not only in terms of size and scope, but also in terms of providing an environment that positively impacts patients and staff.
To fulfil the fundamental goal of healthcare facilities, improving the health of patients, certain requirements must be met. Therefore, the architecture and design of healthcare buildings should be a paramount consideration, and the materials that are used within these designs will prove crucial to creating effective, healthy and sustainable facilities.
Discover in our HEALTH brochure all characteristics, which need to be fulfilled to create a healthy and healing environment in the healthcare buildings of tomorrow!
In 2050, the population will be 10.1 billion. The strain that a growing and ageing population will have on healthcare services will be detrimental if buildings and facilities are not designed accordingly to deal with such an increase in demand.
