Health care – Design and Construction Value
  • Within construction subsectors, hospital construction is expected to have one of the highest growth rates in the next five years. The AIA’s Consensus Construction Forecast projects a 5.5% increase for the health care sector in 2023.
  • Operators in the sector are expected to benefit from technological innovation and the digitization of health care (physical, virtual, and at-home), which will create efficiencies and increase access to care.
  • Increased M&A activity and investment from private equity over the next few years is likely to help the sector with capital investments for new facilities as well as staff training and development.
  • The health care and life sciences industry has unique requirements that will continue to impact construction processes, particularly those related to HVAC and plumbing.
