Why develop with us?
How we do it
Primary care expertise
At Octopus Healthcare, it’s all about what can be done, rather than what has been done in the past. We think “outside the box” to provide the best healthcare experience for our customers. Our integrated development and partnership approach means we support our customers through every step to ensure the success of their project.
Designing future care
We are firm believers that good design has a positive impact on the wellbeing, morale and effectiveness of people working in and using a building.
Every healthcare environment we design is unique and makes a real difference to the community.
Stress-free build process
The construction process can be a stressful time but Octopus Healthcare is here to take the strain. We are highly experienced in negotiating all aspects of building, from planning applications to ensuring high standards and regulations are met.
At Octopus Healthcare, sustainability is more than just “being green”. Sustainable development is a fundamental part of the project, ensuring new buildings meet both present and future requirements.
