Farrells and Ryder launch China healthcare business

  • Comment

TFP Farrells and Ryder Architecture have launched a joint venture business aimed at tapping into opportunities in China’s healthcare sector

Called TFP Ryder Healthcare, the company aims to offer a ‘dedicated resource’ for healthcare projects in the country which plans to build 20,000 new hospitals by 2015.

Ryder director Paul Bell said: ‘This is a really exciting opportunity for both practices, allowing us to combine our specialist experience of the healthcare sector with proven capability in the delivery of award-winning international projects. 

‘We are confident our informed and holistic approach to sustainable healthcare design will offer real benefits to projects in China, Hong Kong and the wider South East Asia region providing an integrated service from the earliest strategic planning stages through to the intelligent operation of facilities.’

TFP Farrells director John Campbell added: ‘The association between the two companies comes at a very crucial time where China’s economic growth and social reforms over the past 25 years have far outstripped the development of healthcare and the impetus is now clearly there to reverse this trend.

‘The committed and planned government reforms to the healthcare industry have opened up the way for both private and foreign investment in all aspects of this sector.’

TFP Ryder Healthcare has already landed a contract to develop an ‘international medical and healthy city’ in north east China. The project will include a hospital and ‘medical tourism resort’.

The agreement comes as TFP Farrells announced plans to open two further offices in Beijing and Shanghai.
