Gilling Dod Architects have produced innovative, bespoke and ground breaking design solutions, using evidence based design principles over a wide range of departments within the Acute Hospital Sector. All our designers are experienced in healthcare design and our constant aim is to improve outcomes through research and learning.
Our aim is to develop design solutions that provide the greatest flexibility of use, long into the future, and by utilising modular planning arrangements, alongside the centralisation of medical services within individual Trusts, we are bringing flexibility of use across many departments. These new models of healthcare delivery offer an opportunity for Trusts to develop a new kind of environment, where the patient journey focuses on privacy, dignity and gender separation, providing the patient centred environment required for improved patient well being.
We achieve this by the integration of open public spaces, interlinked with circulation areas that allow the patient to move through areas of daylight into waiting areas that have physical and visual links to attractively landscaped external spaces further enhancing the therapeutic environment.
As a practice we collaborate with a network of design consultants to draw on the latest thinking and best practice alongside our own research, to design and deliver high quality medical architecture that provides effective medical solutions in a therapeutic and healing environment. We use BIM technology to deliver our projects using Revit Architecture software together with traditional AutoCAD software where required. We also use the Department of Health Activity Database Software to provide a full scheduling service.
