What’s Involved in Medical Fitouts?
The scope of services LDA offers covers many areas of expertise. Before the design process even begins, our team can step in as a healthcare building designer in a number of areas with our pre-design services, including locating suitable sites, negotiating lease terms or conducting feasibility studies to determine viable land purchase. We can also determine building costs for those looking to build or extend.
We also offer a complete turnkey solution via our Design & Construct package, which sees us manage the entire process from pre-design to medical fit-out. Our healthcare interior designers ensure that clinic design and fitouts are completed to an exceptionally high standard and ready to receive patients.
Our success is based on a commitment to excellence, combined with years of experience. We have worked with over 350 practitioners and have a clear understanding of what is required in making a practice appealing, profitable, efficient and relaxing.
Our aim is to share our design and medical fit-out knowledge and expertise with our clients, ensuring they achieve results that positively change their lives and their practices.
Our Medical Fitout Specialist Philosophy:
That is our stated goal and the focus of everything we do. Decades of experience and hundreds of dynamic medical design projects amply demonstrate that both practitioners and their patients just love our philosophy as demonstrated when we put it into practice.
There is a blind spot in the professions that we exploit. Many practitioners concentrate on their clinical skills and may overlook the critical importance of their practice environment. Our practice presentation, including medical interior design, sends a clear message to patients that your practice is modern, sophisticated and attuned to their needs. And by inference so are you. It is called ‘sensation transference’ and every marketer knows about it however sadly it is considered of little relevance in medical/dental education.
Your practice speaks more about you than you do. 80% of communication is non-verbal meaning we believe what we see more than we hear.
Whether you’re planning to update your surgery practice or healthcare clinic, get a fresh new clinic reception design, or schedule a complete dental clinic fit out, it’s about more than state of the art equipment. Your practice should look and work in a specific way and that is where our expertise as a healthcare design firm shines.
Each fit-out goes through many stages – for more information on each stage please see The Process pages.
