Healthcare Premises Nationwide

Doctor’s surgeries to hospitals

Without doubt Healthcare premises are the most diverse in terms of the variety of end users.

We understand that the patients’ level of dependency is the key consideration when deciding the most appropriate fire safety strategy for the building. A High Street Doctor’s Surgery is clearly different to a Hospital Intensive Care Unit. The principle of total evacuation in the event of fire is clearly not suitable in an intensive care environment.

By applying the principles of Health Technical Memorandi (HTM), principally HTM 05-02, we can help to develop the most suitable fire safety strategy based on the available staffing and management levels, taking into account the needs and dependency of the patients.

Indeed sometimes this type of building requires a ‘hybrid’ solution where a risk based approach can be adopted in order to achieve compliance whilst at the same time delivering the desired environment within budget constraints.

So, no matter which kind of Healthcare premises you are involved with, Approved Design can offer you the experience and expertise required to ensure Building Regulation compliance without compromise on patient needs or building concept.
