How

HPI’s experienced architects will consider the brief and design healthcare buildings according to the master plan. The departmental plans will reflect the needs previously established in the brief and the Key Planning Units in the Service Plan.

Client representatives are an integral part of the design process. The design is checked with the client in respect of their operation and staffing requirements.

HPI will assist the client representatives in their decision making by providing sample patterns for the planning of each department using actual built buildings. All design work from the outset is carried out using a combination of 2D and the full implementation BIM with photo-realistic 3D modelling.

HPI has developed its own suite of BIM/ Revit software tools which links the Health Facility Briefing System (HFBS)  to the Revit Model, enabling automatic cross-checking of briefing data with BIM.

HPI will manage the emerging BIM model in coordination with engineering disciplines to generate a fully integrated BIM environment, using Navisworks to effect avoidance of services, structure and architectural clashes.
