"We offer expertise when you need it."

Looking for a medical equipment planner? Need an expert to identify, budget and plan for the technology needs of your project? A consultant to identify the infrastructure requirements of the medical equipment and communicate them to the project design team? We offer all those things and more.

The healthcare industry continues to evolve from both an operational and technological perspective. The critical focus today is on the ability to integrate the latest healthcare innovations into a facility while minimizing the impact to the project cost and schedule. The knowledge to ask the right questions and the experience to understand the impact of each alternative is how we bring value to your project team. We help deliver better project outcomes.

Start your project smarter, with a focus on sharing equipment information early in the design process. This keeps the potential for significant change orders lower and improves the overall design of each space.
