overview

Cura is based on a well-researched and proven design which eliminates a lot of the pre-construction fees whilst our off-site construction solution reduces the time spent building on-site. This approach minimises disruptions to patients, visitors and neighbours and improves health and safety by lowering risk through reduced trades and time on-site. The quality of all the major components is ensured as they are manufactured in factory-controlled conditions.

To ensure you get excellent customer service at every stage, we will help you choose and personalise your health hub, provide a comprehensive handover at completion and come back later to check everything is running smoothly.

our design

At the start of the design process, our healthcare planners carried out research into the types of services needed in a hub and it became evident that every health hub will need to accommodate different clinical services and thus be of a different size.

Our team then translated these findings into a flexible and innovative design, where the size of the hub can be adjusted, allowing clinical and support services to be tailored to the local community. Our standard multifunctional rooms cater to rotating staff and can be adapted to changing needs.
