Global engineering, management and development consultancy Mott MacDonald and Essentia Trading Ltd (Essentia), specialist providers in strategic development and healthcare planning consultancy, have unveiled their collaborative partnership to deliver advisory and implementation services globally. The move brings together two of the UK’s leading healthcare consultancies to offer technical expertise covering the whole spectrum of consulting from infrastructure development to health system transformation.
“We are proud to partner with Mott MacDonald,” said Steve McGuire, CEO of Essentia. “We believe this integration is a perfect fit for customers as it enables us to collaborate in areas to create better connected healthcare systems. Our collective understanding from working on global projects allows us to pass on that wealth of experience, from the NHS all the way through to some of the world’s largest healthcare infrastructure projects.”
Large complex healthcare infrastructure projects require financing, resources and collaboration. All over the world, governments and healthcare organisations face many similar but distinct challenges in the delivery of care. The success or failure in the prevention, treatment and management of illness, disease, infirmity and disability is dependent on the design of infrastructure and the systems put in place. To meet the needs of growing and aging populations means keeping pace with the rapid rate of change in medicine, movement of people, society and technology, all of which demands investment.
The partnership between Mott MacDonald and Essentia is valuable as it maximises collaboration to offer a broad range of expertise including building and infrastructure engineering design services, facilities management advice, technical and procurement advisory services for both capital and revenue funded projects, plus the provision of business case proposals. It also comprises healthcare planning, medical equipping, estate development, information technology and planning, project, programme and cost management.
Richard Cantlay, Mott MacDonald’s global head of healthcare buildings, said: “Partnering with Essentia will mean clients can benefit from a complete specialist and multidisciplinary healthcare service with a major global presence. The move sees some of the leading experts in the public sector collaborating closely with those in the private sector.”
