With a significant property portfolio, NHS property managers are balancing priorities such as integration as part of the ICS agenda as well as introducing innovative solutions and smart environments to reduce costs and improve the experience of staff and patients.

With over 20 years’ experience supporting the public sector with property requirements, we ensure your properties are not only safe and compliant for those who use them, but that they’re cost-efficient and sustainable. Our transactional estates experts can review, assess, create strategies and advise on your property portfolio; our facilities management team delivers effective and efficient spaces within your building(s); and our maintenance and compliance professionals ensure your building - and its equipment and assets - remain compliant at all times.

Healthcare property and infrastructure isn’t just about costs or estate strategies but about people and the lived experience. NHS estates have a significant influence on how patients, carers and NHS staff experience healthcare, and how it can be safely and effectively delivered. From reducing patient anxiety to improving safety, infection control and staff wellbeing, it’s more than passive facilities management. In addition, technologies such as the Internet of Things (IoT) make estates, their assets and the environment around them rich sources of valuable information. This data can provide real-time insight into clinical performance and healthcare experiences.

Whether providing an on-off service or supporting organisations without the required in-house capacity, we provide flexible expertise when you need it. And with wide experience of working across a variety of estates, such as local authority buildings, social housing, universities and NHS buildings, including hospitals and health centres, we’re ideally placed to support you with the ICS agenda. We also provide expert and flexible planning and building control resilience to support major regeneration schemes to achieve their renovation projects.

Focus on net zero

Public sector bodies have been given zero-carbon targets to help reach net zero by 2050. But with some 300,000 public properties contributing 3% of all carbon emissions in the UK, in many cases this will mean retrofitting whole buildings - even estates - to ensure they’re energy-efficient. Such scale of work requires additional expertise, skills and resource capacity.

Our experienced property specialists can help, providing advice, planning and business case submission on energy efficiency measures across your property portfolio. We work side by side with your teams, applying advanced data analytics skills and funding knowledge alongside construction and building surveying expertise to deliver the best value to you.
