What We Do

Healthcare + Bioscience | Designed to help mind and body

As healthcare facilities have evolved to be responsive and needs-specific, our designs provide technical solutions while focused on the people.

A hybrid operating room with advanced imaging devices enables combined multiple procedures with one stay, potentially resulting in faster recovery by patients.

A Community Living Center, on the other hand, offers long-term resident Veterans both function and aesthetics: private, homey rooms with areas for social interaction and support staff.

The Center for Integrated Brain Health & Wellness treats young Veterans with traumatic brain injuries. It provides cutting-edge rehabilitation while engaging the clients with a non-traditional health club ambience.

Collaboration between the architect team, VA physicians, psychologists, therapists and the Vets themselves was key to determining the Center’s design.

“When people come to me about a new building, they say “We want a nice building like the Brain Health & Wellness Center, not just another box.””

– Contracting Officer/VA Martinez, Center for Integrated Brain Health & Wellness

Building Science | Making buildings better

We can provide analyses of building components, materials, structures and systems to improve new designs.

We offer forensic investigation, litigation consulting and solutions for building failures such roof, skylight or window leaks.

Technical Services | Our knowledge works for you

In addition to healthcare design and building science, our expertise includes

“For a project with this many challenges to be successful takes a strong cohesive team. Hilliard Architects produced a quality set of drawings in a short period, was a team player and responsive throughout the construction process.

I hope that we have the opportunity to work with Hilliard Architects on another successful project.”
