Continual improvement policy
Many of our developments have already put the future built-in expansion space to good use and UHD has helped four seperate practices within our developments to secure NHS capital funding to fit out the expansion space to accommodate increasing patient demand for additional clinical space.
In 2013, UHD retrofiited solar panel schemes to the majority of developments without to reduce the carbon footprint of the development and to reduce ongoing energy costs for the occupiers.
