Health and education

Health and social care

The development of healthcare facilities count among some of the most complex construction projects in the world. Whether public or private sector, primary care or acute, facilities need to work equally well for patients and those delivering their care.

Our healthcare team has an enviable track record of delivering acute and primary care facilities, nursing and care homes for industry leading private and public sector clients.

The healthcare sector is more complex and facing greater public scrutiny than ever before, as patients, government and funding bodies demand more with less resources available. At a time when you are managing a complex and diverse range of stakeholders, budgetary pressures and resource constraints, our teams will work with you to ensure project success.

World class services and the clinical teams that provide them have exacting demands and expectations for their physical facilities and technical infrastructure. We are passionate about delivering cutting edge ‘state-of-the-art’ environments that make positive statements and push boundaries. We believe you should have buildings that enable you to expand, develop and enhance the work currently being undertaken in your chosen field of medicine.

Why Mace?

Delivering world class facilities

We successfully deliver projects across a range of health and social care environments. We understand the importance of responding to clinical needs and managing often conflicting stakeholder requirements.

We share your vision to provide world class clinical care and training, pioneering new research and treatments, often through partnership for the benefit of patients. In the fast moving world of medicine we understand that facilities need to be flexible in design and adaptable to meet changing needs.

Responding to your needs

Our dynamic team has experience of delivering a range of project management and construction services. We understand your world, and we have the skills and expertise required to meet your property, infrastructure or construction requirements.

Supporting you from project inception to operational use

We understand that for the end-users of the facility - the clinicians and the patients they treat - often the most significant milestone of the project is the point at which they occupy the building. We have experience of equipment procurement and the careful coordination and delivery of the operational commissioning programme, ensuring a smooth transition and ‘soft landing’ takeover of the operational facility.

A team built around you

Many of our team have worked on the client side of the healthcare industry and have a unique understanding of your needs. This knowledge and experience, along with strong technical ability, provides us with the confidence to challenge the status quo and seek innovative solutions to improve project delivery.

Prioritising efficiencies

Budgetary efficiency is a key priority for health and social care. We recognise the importance of minimising waste, maximising resources and applying efficient processes to ensure that you achieve true value for money. As a major contractor, we have a greater insight into market conditions. We give consideration to the building’s whole lifecycle from the initial concept stage and have employed industry experts to support our teams in BIM, government soft landings and sustainability.

“Mace’s project managers have integrated seamlessly into the in-house team and the manner in which they have undertaken their roles has reflected excellently on the Capital Estates directorate. These managers have not only delivered successfully and to a high standard, but have added value by helping to up-skill our in-house team, demonstrating best practice and promoting professionalism.”

“This challenging project has greatly benefited from your natural communication skills and your growing experience of complex healthcare construction and infrastructure. I literally don’t think the project would have been delivered on time without you.”
