Whether it be the development of a private hospital room prototype, redevelopment of an existing ward, or the construction of an entirely new hospital; the importance of intuitive facilities testing cannot be understated.
OptiSim delivers a multi-level approach that makes certain all aspects of a design are trialled and measured for safety and function at every stage of a project: from architectural blueprint, through to fit out and final building acceptance and handover.
OptiSim Facilities Testing simulations include virtual walk-throughs and ‘live’ shift simulations.
Each tailored simulation is designed to ask the important questions, including for example: Does this hospital room layout support effective hand hygiene practices? Will these lift and doorway dimensions support bed relocation in the event of an unplanned ward relocation?
This multi-level approach ensures:
micro and macro design issues are identified early and addressed effectively
risk is mitigated so that patient safety and service efficiency are enshrined as key deliverables
potential for costly rework is eliminated
original design intent and ‘vision’ for the facility is fully realised at project completion.
