Equipment Planning

Planning more value into every room.

Following construction costs, equipment purchases are often the largest expenditure for a capital project.  Depending on a project’s program, equipment costs can account for as much as 30% of the entire project budget.

 

HBS has the experience and knowledge to balance needs versus wants while meeting the goals of the project within budgetary constraints.

As a leader in the equipment planning industry, our team of planners bring the experience they have gained working in healthcare, science and technology and higher education research environments. The HBS team bases recommendations not only on industry experience and trends, but also independent, unbiased evaluations.
