Another key objective for our client, Centre Hospitalier Universitaire (C.H.U.), was to improve the efficiency of their emergency services. Our teams were involved in the design of the new 28,500m2 Intensive Care Unit (ICU) building, directly linked to Pierre-Paul Riquet Hospital. This facility provides services such as accident and emergency, anaesthesia and reanimation and intensive care.
The restructuring and specialization of these facilities has enabled a better and more efficient delivery of Purpan’s healthcare services. Patients in need of specific treatment are sent directly to the appropriate service, improving waiting time and treatment.
Sustainability was central to the design with all new buildings fulfilling a set of French environmental objectives (‘haute qualité environnementale’) and sourcing energy from renewable sources and the site’s own central biomass energy plants.
