Presenting his firm to the Hospital and Foundation staff at the auditorium this morning, RTKL’s Senior VP, Jeffrey Davenport explained that one third of the revenues of the company were generated from the provision of healthcare solutions. As such, the firm is equipped with teams of experts which are on top of the latest trends and technological advances in the field.

RTKL is to ensure that the patient is at the core of their design; their goal being mainly to create a healing environment. Moreover, the RTKL design is to be evidence-based, 3D dimensional, creating a hospitable environment, sustainable, providing net zero energy solutions and environmental control techniques.
