Chief Operating Officer
David leads LSI Architects' work in the Healthcare sector. His 20+ years of experience lies behind LSI's reputation as a leading provider of architectural services in the healthcare sector in the UK.
LSI is one of the UK’s leading Architects in the Healthcare sector, and has a strong track record in the successful design and delivery of acute healthcare projects at NHS hospitals across the UK including Guy’s & St Thomas’, Addenbrookes, Broomfield, Southend University Hospital, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital, James Paget University Hospital and the Queen Elizabeth Hospital.
Input is provided from project inception and business case stages through to completion and our team is highly experienced at working on existing hospital or health centre sites and within challenging planning contexts, as well as historic buildings.
“I would not hesitate to recommend LSI as a service provider to other customer organisations. The LSI team have a collaborative way of working and support us with delivering successful projects. They understand the needs of a healthcare organisation and have the patient in mind throughout the project lifecycle.”
Capital Programme Manager at Cambridge University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust
Our Healthcare Team offers vast experience in healthcare design and special strengths in terms of a people who are extremely knowledgeable in respect of current HBN’s, HTM’s, Building Regulations and other requirements (eg BREEAM for Health), and well established processes for ensuring the coordination of technical and servicing requirements as part of integrated design solutions.
Our team is also highly skilled at undertaking stakeholder engagement with key stakeholder groups including facilities managers, clinicians/teachers, support staff, users (patients/students), relatives and the wider community.
We understand that as Architects we need to engage and motivate stakeholders to ‘open up’ and describe their ambitions for a project, and encourage others to talk freely about their understanding of project opportunities.
We use a range of techniques to explore and present our ideas throughout the design process to help us receive better feedback and the end product is a building or space that better meets the needs of the end users.
Our healthcare portfolio dates back to the 1980’s and the LSI Architects Healthcare team is currently active on framework projects at NHS Hospitals across the UK as well as projects for a number of leading private healthcare providers.
