Health industry - Aurecon



Innovative end-to-end solutions that deliver a new model for healthcare infrastructure planning, design, delivery and operations

Healthcare has seen unprecedented disruption due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but pressures to meet rising demand in an environment of ageing assets and funding pressures already existed and must be addressed. Aurecon understands that the demand for equitable, accessible, quality healthcare around the world is increasing because of an ageing society, population growth, and a rise in lifestyle-related chronic diseases.

These pressures are challenging governments and health providers are resulting in expenditures that are unsustainable. It has become a political imperative to deliver new health infrastructure and optimise existing assets to deliver a more sustainable, accessible and adaptable healthcare system.

The healthcare sector is responding by developing innovative ways to improve the efficiency and sustainability of healthcare systems, including structural reforms and new models of care, including telehealth.

There is also a growing trend to share the provision of health infrastructure and services between the public and private sectors, as well as focusing more on mental health, overall well-being and preventative health measures in the community. Advances in technology also play a major part in improving access to and delivery of healthcare within the community.

Why haven't buildings become productised?

Despite advances in technology, and the emergence of industrialised design and construction, innovation in the built environment and property industries has been slow.

Why is that? Why hasn’t industrialised construction disrupted the way we design and construct buildings?

Welcome to the fifth edition of Buildings of the Future.
