Our partners

MJ Medical

MJ Medical is a leading healthcare planning and design consultancy. Established for over 30 years, we have helped plan, design, and equip more than 300 healthcare facilities across 75 countries totalling approximately US$100 billion in capital value. Our work includes world leading tertiary hospitals, remote rural health clinics, and everything in between.

Our extensive and diverse global experience enables us to deliver innovative services that are sensitive to local cultural and socio-economic considerations. The knowledge base we derive from our research and development programme supports the provision of intelligent, flexible healthcare buildings able to respond to future changes in clinical best-practise, medical technology, and the needs of the communities they serve.

Our team of experienced economists, academics, architects, engineers, procurement specialists, and clinicians deliver tailored, evidence-based solutions at all stages of the healthcare facility development process. Each service we provide is enhanced by our detailed understanding of the other parts of the process.

We understand the motivations and priorities of different stakeholders in the healthcare facility development process, from financier to operator, from construction contractor to clinicians and patients. Our skill lies in collaborating with those stakeholders to arrive at a solution which supports clinical excellence, delivers value for money, and is adaptable enough to respond to changing demand and utilisation.

Llewelyn Davies

The name of ‘Llewelyn Davies’, in both healthcare and master planning, has a distinguished history, extending over 6 decades and encompassing a spectrum of innovation. The fundamental design principles of the modern hospital were invented and shaped by the founding partners, John Weeks and Lord Richard Llewelyn-Davies. Their pioneering work, supported by extensive research at the Nuffield, was extraordinary and remains as relevant to hospital design and town planning today as ever before.

The company has since undertaken projects in over 80 countries and today works in the UK, Middle East, North Africa, Asia and the Caribbean. In addition to the design of healthcare buildings, Llewelyn Davies has established an international reputation in aviation and in the UK is involved in a number of residentially led mixed use projects. As part of a wider group, the firm benefits from offices across the UK and has access to facilities in the UAE, South Africa and the US.
