9 July 2013 - Aurecon is proud to sponsor and provide technical insight at the 9th Design and Health World Congress & Exhibition, on 10 – 14 July 2013 in Brisbane, Australia at the Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre.

Never before held in Australia, the World Congress, hosted by The International Academy for Design and Health, will attract Australian and international scientists and expert practitioners from more than 40 countries around the world.

Aurecon’s Kelvin Steel, a hospital redevelopment project director with over 30 years' experience will be presenting on "The impact of procurement models on achieving salutogenic outcomes". Aurecon provides fresh thinking and innovative solutions to the planning, design, delivery and operations of primary care clinics, hospitals, research and aged-care facilities.

“We know that the demand for healthcare around the world is increasing as a result of an aging society, population growth, a rise in lifestyle related diseases and the emergence of the middle class in the developing world,” says Matthew Skeen, Competency Leader, Health.

“These pressures are challenging governments and local health authorities, resulting in expenditure that is unsustainable,” adds Matthew.

Breakfast Symposium
Can Hospitals Heal the Community?
Applying Science, Research and Innovation in Our Healthcare Facilities to help Reshape our Changing Cities.

Joined by Dr Peter Steer, Chief Executive Officer for Children’s Health Services, Aurecon will host a panel discussion at the breakfast symposium on Saturday 13 July 2013.

Aurecon’s Kelvin Steel, Digby Hall and Matt Coetzee will discuss how health infrastructure influences integrated urban design and the hospital design solutions that provide long term flexibility and capture innovations in technology and building sustainability.

At Aurecon, we integrate multidisciplinary teams to deliver innovative healthcare solutions across the entire healthcare spectrum. From delivering a programme of primary healthcare clinics in Africa to a highly specialised quaternary hospital in Hong Kong, we understand the unique and complex issues that exist in this sector.

Clients benefit from our global reach and international experience in some of the largest healthcare programmes and projects located across Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Africa and the Middle East.
