Moving the Needle on Federal Healthcare Design

Gresham Smith proudly provides architecture, interior design, engineering and planning services to federal healthcare clients across the U.S. Our decades of experience mean we know the federal landscape well—the regulations and technical requirements, as well as the need for flexibility amid a changing healthcare landscape. We also have the knowledge and know-how to partner on various design delivery methods, from design-build to public-private partnerships, as well as support to support speed to market and agility through prefabrication and modular construction.

From large, acute care facilities and outpatient clinics to renovations via IDIQ contracts, we take pride in elevating the patient experience for our nation’s service members and their families through designs that are both highly functional and highly creative.
