Healthcare provision is evolving rapidly. In a digital world with increasing pressures surrounding cost, efficiency and providing the best possible patient experience while ensuring quality care, today’s healthcare environments must deliver better outcomes from every pound invested in the long-term.
It’s a challenge that no NHS or private healthcare provider, or framework partner, should face in isolation, and it’s something we thrive in – bringing teams together to collaborate on dynamic, highly engineered solutions.
A trusted partner from cradle to aftercare
With cross-sector expertise covering the full delivery spectrum, our specialist team works with public and private sector clients and end users innovatively and collaboratively at every stage of the building lifecycle.
From feasibility to post-occupancy, we use tailored, agile thinking to create places where healthcare provision can flourish long into the future. Our people bring regional expertise to a national offering, and our unrivalled in-house tech capability is revolutionising how healthcare spaces are put together and operated.
By harnessing state-of-the-art technology and virtual reality at Spire’s St Anthony’s Hospital, London, we were able to walk doctors, surgeons and stakeholders through virtual healthcare spaces at the technical design phase, collecting their input on bespoke operating theatre layouts and designs, and collaborative working environments.
“The project was delivered very well, on time and, importantly, was of high quality. The perception of ISG within Spire is that they are not only the benchmark for delivery, but for providing both good quality and good people. The team offered a very clear level of expertise within the health sector, working collaboratively in design management and ensuring quality of supply chain engagement. Spire would most certainly work with ISG in the future.”

Visualisation - the great communications leveller
Advanced gaming visualisation technology at our £50m Oak Cancer Centre scheme for The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust in London is helping nurses, doctors and trustees create a world-leading healthcare space that will be transformational for the care given and received.
High-performing healthcare facilities right where you need them
We understand the need for flexible, cost-effective facilities that attract the best talent. This could be a top-of-the-range research facility driving the latest advancements in medical technology – such as University College London’s (UCL) new £300m home of Neuroscience, where we will install the world’s most advanced MRI scanners – or a flexible large-scale hospital design and construction build that increases commercial revenue at a time when large-scale funding is uncertain, such as The Oak Cancer Centre at London’s The Royal Marsden NHS Trust.
Building high-quality healthcare environments in a city, office or underused location can be a big challenge – but it doesn’t have to be. Our work with healthcare estates and facilities professionals has seen us use the latest technology to help clients transform existing office buildings in complex locations into industry-leading healthcare environments. We delivered a five-star hotel-quality patient experience at Schoen Clinic in the heart of London using Building Information Modelling (BIM) to design the building, and our Performing Places software to monitor performance in the aftercare phase.
“As one of the prominent MMC methodologies, a platform design approach to manufacture and assembly (P-DfMA) is fast becoming a ubiquitous term in the Construction Playbook.”

A prescription for a long and healthy legacy
It’s paramount that the healthcare spaces which serve our communities are as healthy as possible, and that requires facilities that are future-proofed, accessible and sustainable.
In our DNA lies a commitment to securing legacies for the communities in which we work, and we’re leading on a brighter, more sustainable future – it’s what makes us unique, and why customers return.
As a leading healthcare solutions provider with a portfolio featuring multi award-winning spaces, such as the Schoen Hospital and Halo Building, we deliver the healthcare environments of tomorrow – today.
“We need to get better at collecting, analysing and acting upon data insights. The continued maintenance of our buildings is now critical – monitoring and early interventions to maintain optimum efficiency will dramatically reduce energy consumption and emissions.”
