Hospital Planning & Design


We at Cedara believe that each project is unique in terms of the aspirations of its promoters, its philosophy, its reason to exist, its culture, services and needs. We understand that hospitals have a personality that compliments its physical form. They are unique in the sense that they encompass many intangible aspects in addition to the fundamental requirements of functional needs and aesthetic expression. They are also dynamic as they change, grow and expand responding to the health needs of the community that they existing.

Our team with diversified expertise in all facets of hospital design and management, work together realizing the aspirations, the values, the culture, and its philosophy that make the project unique, yet compliant with the standards and lean. This approach has resulted in our designs being operationally efficient, economical to build, flexible enough to changing needs that renders itself to future expansion. We are able to achieve this by blending the creativity that design demands with the rigor of analysis. All our designs are subjected to stringent criteria of design analysis, functional analysis, value engineering and life-cycle calculations before they are presented our clients.

Our wide range of resources and expertise offer comprehensive and one stop shop solutions (incorporating architectural, building and infrastructure engineering, mechanical, electrical, HVAC and other disciplines) to technically challenging projects and services from planning, construction, commissioning to managing hospital projects.
