The plans were also developed in cooperation with hospital staff to minimize the adverse effects of construction work on the hospital’s operations. Indeed, one of the main challenges of this project is to build the new hospital buildings adjacent to a fully functioning 24/7 hospital. The old and new parts of the hospital have over 200m of wall in common.
The project, valued in total at EUR 138 million, is now entering the implementation phase, moving from the design table into construction. Preparatory work began on the ‘hot’ hospital last summer, and construction will begin in earnest this April. The project is due for completion in January 2023.
