RMJM Healthcare Design History
The delivery of functional, adaptable, prepossessing healthcare designs has played a great role in RMJM’s history since the opening of Dundee’s Ninewells Hospital & Medical School in 1974. The project received the Concrete Society Award Special Mention and would come to mark a decisive step in the evolution of RMJM as a leading innovator in healthcare design.
RMJM’s expertise in creating state-of-the-art healthcare facilities is informed by an intricate knowledge of cutting-edge technologies, combined with the wealth of experience garnered through six decades as a leading international architecture firm.
RMJM’s inherent understanding of functional design and technological development has informed the design process for a wide array of medical institutions, including medical schools for Duke, Princeton and UCL University, in cancer centres in the US and Portugal, in biotechnology facilities for Genzyme and Alexandria Properties and in buildings for pharmaceutical clients such as GlaxoSmithKline, Bristol-Myers Squibb and Novartis.
The multi-award winning Khoo Teck Puat Hospital in Singapore stands as a testament to the strength of international collaboration, intuitive cultural understanding and world-class design standards. Opening to numerous awards, including the 2010 Skyrise Greenery Award, the 2011 Building & Construction Authority Universal Design Award and the SIA Architectural Design Awards’ Building of the Year, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital today represents a benchmark for future ‘green hospital’ design.
In response to a rapidly growing international demand, the firm created RMJM Healthcare, an international studio dedicated exclusively to the design and development of world-class medical centres.
