HEALTHCARE

Craddys have been involved with a huge host of NHS and private healthcare projects, including specialist wards and one of the largest and most ambitious PFI healthcare projects in the UK.

We have a detailed knowledge of specialist design requirements on healthcare buildings (eg. HTM / HBN) which has led to several commissions as Technical Advisors to Healthcare Trusts and appointment on healthcare frameworks. We are particularly skilled in providing economic, cost effective designs with flexibility, suitable for the ever changing healthcare needs of the end users.
