DB3 Architecture for the Healthcare Sector

DB3 Architecture for the Healthcare Sector

Diagnosis and treatment are no longer the only functions of modern health facilities – they’re also work-places, community hubs and teaching centres that demand design innovation and insight.

Being perhaps the most important buildings in our towns and cities, we at DB3 appreciate the care and attention-to-detail needed in designing and delivering them.

Our approach is user-focussed – we place the experience of all occupants above all other considerations. We recognise that sensitively designed spaces can not only improve healing but also make a positive impact on the health and wellbeing of all users.

Experience you can Trust

Experience you can Trust

Our team brings experience of a wide range of typologies ranging from acute and specialist care to primary care and mental health. We understand the challenges of delivering sustainable solutions in operational contexts and have experience working within existing facilities as well as in designing new structures using a range of techniques including off-site fabrication and modularisation.

We also recognise the contribution that health education facilities make to care delivery having worked with Swansea University and Velindre NHS Trust in designing bespoke centres.

We have worked throughout the UK engaging with health boards, NHS Trusts and major contractors as well as third-party private developers.

Delivering Healthy Results

Delivering Healthy Results

Our team can work at both the strategic and detail stages of design and have experience in engaging with a wide range of stakeholders and user groups.

We use a range of tools to design and present our proposals and have found the ability to adapt and vary our communication techniques to suit a range of users to be extremely useful. We can progress quickly from sketch to 3D visualisation using tools such as Lumion and 3D Studio Max and use BIM and related software such as Solibri and Codebook to ensure delivery of highly coordinated solutions.

“Beacon: A thing that illuminates or inspires… The title for the new facility in the burgeoning SA1 quarter of Swansea is no mistake. Its siting, presence and elegant execution shine and radiate quality. Set over five levels it accommodates a range of health sector user groups but this is no clunky hybrid. The spatial separation and transitions are handled with a cool assurance and underpin the architectural success of the facility.”
