Improving Global Health with Responsive Design

A One Health approach recognises that the health of people, animals and the environment are all connected. Designing for One Health takes into consideration the unique populations and environments they support. We design, plan and engineer facilities across the world that embrace these principles. These facilities accommodate a wide range of infectious disease, environmental health, epidemiology, mental health and diagnostic testing functions.

Pioneering Innovation in Lab Flexibility

We use a practical, culturally-sensitive, sustainable and incremental approach to develop local, regional and national laboratories to improve health outcomes. These facilities are equipped to handle varying quantities of specimens, requiring safe and secure accessioning and processing — within a context of available resources. We’ve pioneered innovations for flexibility in laboratory design to anticipate and accommodate change on demand.

Fostering Health in the Community

Our health and science leaders collaborate to examine how health is delivered to the community now and in the future. We work to optimise the opportunities for improved patient outcomes as well as improved community health awareness, education and engagement. By building on current evidence, research and industry best practices, we design facilities to positively impact the delivery of healthcare to the community.
