Healthcare: design and build

Argent have many years experience in building services design and installation across a range of sectors – including hospitals, hotels, custodial facilities, embassies, private members’ clubs, theatres, restaurants and commercial buildings.

Our project teams are selected for their specific expertise in key sectors and we can draw on a wealth of experience amassed over years working in the healthcare sector.

M&E design and build projects:

  • modular operating theatres
  • critical high dependence wards
  • secure mental health wards
  • general wards
  • day clinics
  • supporting central plant
  • diagnostic centres (including MRI)

Our teams are experienced in planning, managing and delivering major plant replacements in large ‘mission critical’ facilities, (including hospitals) without disruption to the operation of the facility.

As a part of our project management, we organise the relocation, removal or installation of new plant, and where necessary, also dismantle, transport and reinstate plant to other sites.

New build projects
We can draw on a body of knowledge for new build projects – advising at the outline business case, lifecycle costing, technical, environmental and detailed design stages.
