Balancing the rising cost in construction and the needs within medical spaces can be challenging. It is critical for the design professional to work hand-in- hand the with physician and practice staff and to employ good communication and listening skills. It is the architect/designer’s responsibility to provide the most appropriate options based on the practice’s objectives in creating aesthetically pleasing and optimal spaces for the patients, physicians and staff.
