Traditional healthcare facility design often begins with an aesthetically pleasing shell followed by an engineering effort to squeeze in equipment and utilities. Our approach is different, we begin from the inside out.

HIPP’s process-driven approach to engineering solutions means hospital projects go beyond aesthetics to ensure healthcare processes are supported from personnel and material movement to HVAC for infection control. This lean and agile approach maximizes client value by delivering projects which provide robust systems along with the facility flexibility to meet ever-changing healthcare needs.

Our lean project delivery methodology begins with establishing evolves as follows:

Unit Operations > Process Flows > Personnel Flows > Material Flows > Waste Flows > Process Equipment > Process Utility Equipment > Facility Utility Equipment > Functional Space Programming > Conceptual Floor Plans
