Laing O’Rourke has a proven and unparalleled track record of successful delivery in the healthcare sector. We have worked with a range of Trusts and Boards and their advisors to develop world-class facilities on time and on budget. 

About the Healthcare sector

Our integrated ‘one team’ offers Trusts in-house expertise from Group companies including CHt, Expanded, Select and Explore; collaboration with end users (clinical staff, FM and patients) during design and testing/commissioning is a key strength. 

Laing O’Rourke’s manufacturing and modular solutions are transforming traditional healthcare construction methodologies into a modern process of component-based assembly, whilst ensuring clinical function remains at the core. We call this approach Design for Manufacture and Assembly (DfMA) which has been at the forefront of our healthcare construction over the last decade and delivers tangible benefits for the Trusts. For example, using DfMA solutions at our Grange University Hospital,  Clatterbridge Cancer Care, Dumfries & Galloway Royal Infirmary, Alder Hey Children’s Hospital, Brighton 3Ts and Guy’s & St Thomas Cancer Centre healthcare projects has significantly enhanced safety standards on site, produced factory grade quality & precision which engineers out legacy, improved speed of delivery, cutting carbon emissions, enhanced flexibility and a reduction in hospital acquired infection rates.

We work closely with all stakeholders and NHS Trusts, to ensure that we are responsive to their needs and requirements. For instance and in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, at the Grange University Hospital in Wales, we delivered part of the hospital almost a year ahead of schedule.

Benefits of our offsite manufacturing approach

Value - our agile and robust DfMA product sets can adapt to meet stringent needs while providing both upfront and whole-life value.

Speed - accelerated procurement and delivery. OUR DFMA (MMC) APPROACH SAVED 237,099 WORKING HOURS (23%) OVERALL PLANNED PROGRAMME SAVING at The Grange University Hospital.

Standardisation in place of bespoke designs - a system wide product-led approach to clinical provision

Collective learning - proven engineered solutions, and build on existing NHS platforms for data and procurement

Adoption of common digital environment - data collection for the future, creating digital twins to copy and repeat

Proving value for money
