T.A.D. has operated a Facilities Management division for over 20 years providing a variety of duties primarily into the NHS Healthcare Estates Sector, but increasingly to commercial clients.

T.A.D. itself was formed as a buy-out by ex Trent Regional Health Authority (TRHA) staff, in 1990 and within a short period we were engaging other key estates personnel as jobs were shed in the public sector.

These staff were deployed to then fill the vacuums that estates departments around the country were experiencing as a result of downsizing, but still having legal and management obligations to meet.

The company’s reputation is founded on our extensive healthcare experience and providing professional services for all aspects of project delivery from the development of the business case right through commissioning to Facilities Management.  The practice has utilised this expertise to broaden our range of clients that now encompasses a wide range of public sector developments, commercial developments and private clients:

For a variety of clients:

  • NHS Foundation and Acute Trusts, PCT Trusts, Mental Health Trusts and Commercial FM Operators in the healthcare sector.
  • Industrial Estate and Business park Managers.
  • Commercial and Charitable Healthcare service providers.
  • Housing Associations and Residential Social Landlords

As a RIBA Chartered Practice we have demonstrated our professional excellence and reached the gold standard in the profession.  We have done this through a commitment to our clients by developing robust Quality Management Systems and to our staff by encouraging them to continue to develop and learn and our environment through our sustainable designs and practice.

Services provided have included:

  • Secondment of staff from Estates Office to Acting Director of Estates to major District General Hospitals
