Bruce has a firm grasp of current and emerging trends in health facility design and service delivery – and he translates that unique insight into architecture and design that balances form and function within a safe, healing environment for patients, carers and staff.

He has more than three decades of experience in the sector, with a career stretching across Australia, the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, India and North America. In a variety of senior roles, Bruce has honed his skills across the project continuum, from business case development, feasibility studies and master planning through to design documentation and delivery, completion and commissioning.

A frequent presenter at national and international health conferences, Bruce joined Architectus from HDR, where he served as Director – Health after holding senior roles at Silver Thomas Hanley and Hassell. His Australian portfolio includes Monash Children’s Hospital and Werribee Mercy Hospital Stage 2 Redevelopment Precinct Master Plan – both in Melbourne – and the Bendigo Hospital Master Plan & Redevelopment, Victoria’s largest regional hospital project. Internationally, he was the health facility project director for St Catharines Hospital in Ontario, Canada, the Singapore – Outram Community Hospital, and Dunedin Health Precinct Master Plan in New Zealand.

Whatever the nature or scale of his work, Bruce believes in the power of evidence-based and architectural design, and partners with clients on solutions focused on the health and wellness of the individual as well as the wider community.
