)-- Archetype Group, a leading multi-disciplinary construction consultancy in South East Asia, announced today its new partnership with AIA Associés. AIA Associés, who recently opened an office in Beijing, is a French-based firm specialized in the development of high-quality and technical healthcare facilities. The purpose of such alliance is to bring together the regional expertise of Archetype with the specific healthcare knowledge of AIA Associés and to provide comprehensive design and project management services to the rapidly developing healthcare sectors of Asia.
Mr. Pierre-Jean Malgouyres, General Director of Archetype Group, explains, “Archetype Group has a strong track record of working in developing markets, where there are distinct challenges and considerations. Our aim is to combine that experience with AIA’s specialist understanding of healthcare facilities to provide an unprecedented level of expertise in this area to the fast-growing markets of Asia.”
As these key regions develop further, so does the need for high-quality and sophisticated hospitals, medical clinics, specialist treatment centers, research laboratories and the corresponding infrastructure around these types of facilities.
"This new partnership with Archetype, a leading consultancy Group in South East Asia, is a real opportunity for AIA Associés’ expansion in South Asia and will surely become the framework of our growing international development, for we constantly aim for excellence in delivering high-quality and innovative healthcare facilities.
