We understand healthcare. We understand how hospitals and care facilities work. Our experience and proven process allow us to understand the needs of the patients and staff as well as the challenges and goals of the project. Below is a brief overview of what Thinkspace offers to our healthcare clients.
Knowledge: We are firm believers in a one-team approach and involve the full design team and client representatives from the project outset. Our primary objective is to understand the unique needs of each project and client. We aim to consistently deliver a high-quality design, regardless of schedule and cost constraint demands.
Expertise: Our expertise includes medical imaging, labs, clinics, inpatient units, ambulatory care, emergency, surgical suites, neonatal intensive care units, nurseries, obstetrics, renal dialysis units, dietary facilities within acute care facilities, and all other associated spaces. We are particularly skilled in delivering complex renovations within operational healthcare facilities. Our work includes new builds, complex renovations, business cases, master planning, programming, and facility assessments.
Process: Our process is driven by our desire to Listen, Collaborate, Deliver, and Inspire through design. Our design process is balanced between ensuring we meet the overarching goal of the project and the desire to inform the smallest details that shape the design. We are holistic in our approach and work to understand our clients unique challenges and opportunities and ensure the proposed solution reflects the vision and meets the facility’s current and future needs.
People: We are experts in healthcare and use our expertise to benefit every project in which we are involved. We utilize a transparent, evidence-based, flexible, collaborative approach to design. Key individuals provide strong leadership and act as skilled diplomats to manage expectations and work with user groups to ensure all voices are heard and receive equal weighting. Every member of the integrated team brings their own specific expertise to the Project and will be encouraged to provide meaningful contributions at the appropriate time in the Project.
Technology: Our approach to technology is to communicate the intent of design and not to inform the design itself. We utilize REVIT, BIM, and rendering software to clearly articulate the intent of the process to consultants and builders and allow our clients to make informed decisions.
