Patient-Focused Healthcare Facility Engineering

Expert planning, design, and engineering for healthcare facilities across the nation.

Why Patient-Focused Healthcare Facility Engineering Matters

Bancroft believes healthcare facilities should be engineered with patients at the center. These intricate buildings contain critical systems directly impacting health outcomes, experiences, and safety. Our healthcare facility engineering focuses on:

Evidence-Based Design: We optimize facilities by researching how the built environment affects healing.

Technology Integration: We design flexible systems to accommodate new medical equipment and IT infrastructure.

Regulatory Compliance: We ensure facilities meet building codes and healthcare regulations for safety.

Culture of Safety: We foster a workplace culture dedicated to patient well-being through training and communication.

With expertise across electrical, mechanical, plumbing, medical gas, fire protection, and other systems, we keep healthcare facilities running smoothly. Our engineers stay current on regulations, sustainability practices, infection control, and emergency readiness.

Meeting Healthcare Standards Through Expert Hospital and Healthcare Facility Design

Healthcare facilities must adhere to strict regulatory standards to maintain licensing, reimbursements, and, most importantly—patient safety. Falling short can lead to fines or facility closures. Our facility engineers manage compliance across all aspects of your building’s design and operations. This includes scale, accessibility, systems, materials selection, and maintenance protocols tailored to clinical needs. We also oversee infection control measures like air exchanges, filtration upgrades, and surface disinfection.

Our patient-centered approach optimizes your facility for care experiences, safety, and health outcomes. We manage inspections, testing, permits, and corrective actions to ensure continual compliance.

Build a State-of-the-Art Healthcare Facility With Bancroft’s Innovative Design Solutions

Healing Environment Creation

We create environments where people can feel at ease as they receive care. We know that a healing environment goes beyond medical expertise – it must also provide comfort, dignity, and a sense of well-being. Our healthcare designers collaborate closely with providers and administrators to create peaceful, uplifting facilities for patients and families.

We carefully craft patient rooms, exam areas, and communal spaces to optimize privacy while maintaining human connection. We introduce thoughtful design choices, such as abundant natural light and tranquil colors, to promote relaxation and healing.

Streamline Patient Traffic Flow

We optimize facility layouts to promote intuitive circulation for all users. Our wayfinding studies analyze ideal pathways between critical departments, minimizing travel distances for staff. We organize main entrances and key spaces to make navigation straightforward for visitors.

Additional solutions from our team include decentralized nursing stations for efficient care delivery, centralized supply delivery to simplify logistics, and strategic elevator placement. Our signage, lighting, and architectural details subtly guide occupants through the building.

Hospital Information Systems

The Bancroft team consults equipment specialists early in the design process to incorporate critical systems, including medical imaging, labs, and telehealth platforms. We satisfy structural, electrical, cooling, and data needs to support specialized equipment.

Our designs also incorporate adaptable spaces like shelled and interstitial areas to accommodate future needs. Mock-ups and simulations allow us to verify equipment clearances and workflow during the planning phase.

Medical Equipment Planning and Integration

Our information system solutions include nurse call platforms, real-time asset tracking, and A/V networks facilitating rapid provider communication and coordination. For instance, our real-time locating system uses RFID tags to monitor the location of equipment and patients, helping to minimize wait times and prevent errors.

We also deploy building automation systems that digitally control HVAC, lighting, and more. This enables remote monitoring and optimization of hospital facilities for peak performance.

Prioritize Sustainability With Our Green Building Practices

Sustainability is at the core of Bancroft’s design philosophy. We employ the latest green building strategies to reduce environmental impact across all project phases. Energy modeling allows us to optimize building orientation, massing, and envelope design for maximum efficiency. Our high-performance mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems minimize energy waste, while renewable energy sources are integrated where feasible.

Strict specifications for low-emitting materials and dedicated ventilation systems ensure excellent indoor air quality. Our engineers deploy water-conservation measures for regional climate conditions and project requirements. Our holistic approach helps clients achieve their sustainability goals and build high-performing spaces.
