Royal HaskoningDHV is part of a design team commissioned to create a 30,000 m² extension at Copenhagen’s Hvidovre Hospital.
The development is part of the centralisation of hospitals currently taking place in Denmark, with Hvidovre being just one of 10 newly built and renovated hospitals in the country.
The 187 million Euro extension will include an emergency ward, paediatric ward, obstetrics and cardiology departments.
Royal HaskoningDHV will carry out structural design and building services, working together with architects Schmidt Hammer and Lassen, Aarhus, landscape architects Kragh & Berglund and consulting engineers Søren Jensen.
During the next two years the team will prepare the detailed design with the aim to hand over construction plans to contractors in 2016. Completion is expected in 2020.
Eduard Boonstra, Director of Royal HaskoningDHV’s Healthcare business, said: "Our knowledge of future proof building concepts will play a large part in the design of a hospital that will benefit patients and help staff function at their best.”
