Facility Design and Construction Management

UPMC International works with partners around the world to support all aspects of medical facility design and construction. Our services include site selection, preliminary space programming, facility layout and design according to clinical needs, construction management, commissioning and start-up of significant pieces of clinical equipment and guidance on effective management of a facility’s ongoing operation and maintenance.

Notably, UPMC has significant expertise in the design and development of cutting-edge research facilities. For example, we worked with the Italian government, providing technical and scientific direction to help design the Biomedical Research and Biotechnology Center (BRBC) in Sicily, Italy. UPMC is presently responsible for construction management of this facility, anticipated to be complete in 2019; upon completion, the BRBC will include a biosafety level 3 containment laboratory.

“UPMC respected our budget and provided training for our staff to keep our patients in Singapore.”
