Facility & Capital Asset Planning

ECG’s facility and capital asset planning experts translate an organization’s strategic and operational goals into implementable, viable, and flexible solutions. While we’ve planned more than $40 billion in new capital investments in the past 18 years, our team has also helped dozens of organizations identify alternatives to major construction that resulted in increased efficiencies and substantial cost savings.

With deep expertise and experience in strategy, facility planning, operations, and technology, we plan facilities that are immediately usable and continuously adaptable. We bring field-tested insights and proven tools developed through our work with the majority of North America’s leading academic medical centers and health systems during decades of service to the healthcare industry.

When construction or renovation is part of the answer, our highly regarded database — developed over years of programming major building projects — has allowed us to benchmark and recommend appropriate capacities and utilization for all areas. These capacity standards help us to recommend the appropriate number of rooms to support an efficient operation as well as an efficient building plan.

At the space programming stage, our experts will help your organization articulate an operational vision and accompanying guidelines based on desired future practices, increased use of technology, and the ideal work environment for physicians, staff, patients, and visitors. And we have unparalleled activation planning experience to ensure your facility’s first day goes off without a hitch.

While other firms can help with strategy and facility sizing, they lack expertise in facility development, which can result in solutions that are difficult to implement and lack flexibility to adapt to future demands. ECG’s new colleagues from the healthcare practice of Kurt Salmon have programmed more than 20 million square feet in the past two years alone. The numbers speak for themselves.
