Archus, a Bristol, UK-headquartered healthcare infrastructure consulting firm, has expanded its physical presence into Canada with an office in Toronto.

The international expansion follows a £9 million investment from BGF, an investment company that provides growth capital to small and mid-sized business in the UK and Ireland.

The Toronto office will see Archus expand outside its base in the UK and Ireland, where it has 100+ employees across eight offices.

The consultancy has hired Christine Chadwick as managing director of its new subsidiary Archus Canada. Chadwick brings more than 30 years of experience in healthcare, with a focus on planning and delivering hospital and health infrastructure.Archus expands into Canada with Toronto officeShe previously was principal and healthcare practice leader at CannonDesign, national senior director for infrastructure solutions at GE Healthcare, and leader for strategic consulting in the Americas healthcare sector at Aecom

“It’s a privilege to be leading the establishment and growth of Archus in Canada, where we have already developed a strong track record in delivering our services to a number of valued clients for several major health infrastructure projects,” Chadwick said. “The capabilities and expertise of our globally based team enable us to draw upon and share world-wide best practice and drive innovation.”

The office opening follows Archus’ contract wins on several projects across the country, including St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.

Founded in 2017, the consultancy delivers services in project and program management, strategic advisory, property consultancy, and technical advisory for every type of health estate project.

“The establishment of Archus Canada and our first physical Canadian office location in Toronto is a pivotal moment in our journey, supporting our ambitions for global growth alongside the creation of better healthcare outcomes and fulfilling our mission to shape the future of healthcare,” said Richard Darch, group CEO of Archus.
