Our team has delivered over 200 healthcare projects across more than 20 million square feet. We bring an integrated and value-added approach, incorporating best practices to create efficient and patient-centric facilities.

We have provided design solutions for unique and highly complex projects for specialized laboratories, spinal cord injury care centers of excellence, and also developed the electrical infrastructure to power the 1st Hadron Therapy Facility in the United States.

Our work spans from coast to coast to support national and regional and private and public healthcare systems and clients.

Building projects range from less than $1M to over $80M in estimated construction costs, averaging $5.5M with more than 20 million square feet delivered. 

Our certified healthcare planners, with ACHA, EDAC, and AICP credentials, are dedicated to designing patient-centered solutions within a holistic healing environment. We are guided by our focus on improving how healthcare services are delivered by effectively meeting patient needs, substantially boosting operational efficiency, minimizing operating costs, and supporting employee health and safety.

Project Types

We're creating functional and efficient spaces that support productivity among staff members while also considering elements of aesthetics and accessibility.

These facilities requires a sensitive and therapeutic-focused approach, emphasizing safety, privacy, and the creation of calming environments. Incorporating flexible spaces, natural elements, and thoughtful layouts contributes to the well-being of patients and supports effective mental health treatment strategies.

Our integrated approach to infrastructure projects utilizes in-house A/E services to deliver solutions that meet operational goals, promote aesthetics, and enable long-term vision. AE Works engineers solve buildings systems challenges and design for comfort and reliability while maximizing performance. We understand that ensuring buildings operate reliably, securely, and efficiently is essential to supporting daily activities.

Our laboratory experience spans new construction, fit-outs, renovations, and development of facility standards. We have completed numerous projects with the world’s premiere research institution - National Institutes of Health, as well as other federal and commercial laboratory clients.

A balance between functionality and creating a supportive, homelike environment for residents, these spaces have thoughtful layouts, accessibility features, and communal spaces. Thoughtful design is crucial to promoting a sense of well-being, while also ensuring the efficient delivery of care services within the facility.

We lead our master planning process with strategic coordination to align facility goals with organizational objectives. The planning requires a comprehensive understanding of healthcare services, patient needs, and industry trends to develop a roadmap that guides the physical and functional aspects of the facility, ensuring optimal use of space and resources.

Large or small, these projects involve creating efficient, patient-friendly spaces that cater to specific medical needs and services. Emphasis is placed on optimizing patient flow, providing flexible layouts, and integrating technology to enhance the overall patient experience while ensuring streamlined operations for specialized medical services.
