Adrian heads the healthcare team in our Bristol studio.
He has led major healthcare projects in the public and private sectors, including award-winning projects at Wexham Park Hospital and new hospitals in Swindon, Portsmouth, Southampton and London. He also led our team on the Grange University Hospital (previously known as the Specialist and Critical Care Centre) which is the centrepiece of a new model of healthcare delivery serving over 600,000 people. It will deal with all major emergencies as well as treat and care for those needing complex emergency or critical care and opened four months early to help with the Covid-19 pandemic.
Adrian also has wide experience of working on complex science and research projects for clients in higher education and commercial development.
Where do you see the architecture profession in 2050? “The rapid change in the techniques for diagnosing and treating illness will continue to influence the design of patient care buildings, as will the increasing patient expectation for higher quality care. Our growing understanding of how the physical environment can influence patient recovery will become a dominant factor in new projects.”
The £350m Grange University Hospital (GUH) in Gwent, South Wales opens to patients today, Tuesday 17 November, four months ahead of schedule, in a bid to help the Aneurin Bevan University Health Board (ABUHB) respond to winter pressures and Covid-19.
