Trusted Partner

Taking pride in helping improve the quality of NHS estates.

To Support the NHS

Our mission is to establish a high-quality clinical estate that will stand the test of time. By supporting the NHS to increase capacity and creating an outstanding place to work, patients will have access to the services they need, and staff will have the facilities to deliver outstanding care.

//

Working Together for Patients

Darwin Group believe all healthcare buildings must be fit for purpose, with no compromise on design to ensure the delivery of high-quality patient care. Our compliant modular systems redefine what can be achieved in healthcare construction.

//

Providing Value to the NHS

Increasing value for the NHS from every pound spent is crucial. We provide the best possible building solution within the available budget to maintain and improve healthcare environments.

//

Complete Quality Control

By having complete continuity and control of the entire design, manufacturing, installation and fit-out process, our quality principles are not compromised. From concept to completion – our turnkey services provide complete quality and cost control.

//

Supporting Net Zero Goals

Our design and build methods reduce carbon emissions to support environmental and social wellbeing. By using BREEAM and Passivhaus Principles, we help the NHS improve clinical services and progress towards net zero goals.
