Swain Architects specializes in healthcare design with a focus on OSHPD and supporting clinics. Our pillars of collaboration, efficiency, availability and innovation are all driven by technological excellence. We aim to steer our projects towards holistic resolutions that satisfy everybody: the project team, end users, facilities, members, and patients.
Collaboration with the entire team throughout the process is key. By using the most up-to-date collaboration tools and technology, we are able to keep everyone moving in sync and with the same mutual end goal of providing the best healthcare experience to the patient.
We work fast. And, we harness technological excellence to drive our speed. Our strength in integrating the most current technology, such as BIM software and mobile computing applications, into our practice means greater efficiencies, quicker response times, more accurate and up-to-date information and, most importantly, cost savings to our clients.
Two things enable our availability: the technology we use and, simply, we care.
Never satisfied with the same old, same old, we strive to innovate not just through our finished product but in the process. We use modern technological tools, and we involve stakeholders early in the process. By constantly trying new solutions to tackle project issues—whether in project delivery or collaboration—we’re able to successfully produce a finished project that makes everybody happy.
Swain Architects is prepared to support all parts of your new project including: master planning, feasibility studies, entitlement support, code analysis, programming, space planning, project management, construction management, and support.
