Hospital Planning

Hospital planning…

… is the planning of buildings in the health care sector, starting with doctor’s offices to medical centers, sanatoriums to district hospitals and university hospitals. Such buildings are designed and constructed on the basis of the operational-organizational processes. For this purpose, the operational organization together with the space and functional program derived from it form the basis, right from the start of planning. In the area of medical practices and medical centers, this basis is often worked out with the doctors and medical staff.

The layout design must be executed in such a way that the staff only has to cover short distances – long distances represent the largest cost factors in the operation of a hospital. At the same time, attention must be paid to the optimal configuration of the patient rooms, because a pleasant atmosphere plays a major role in the rapid recovery of patients.

On the technical side, we are observing the development towards more and more and increasingly powerful medical technology equipment. This technological progress and also digitalization are playing an ever greater role in the healthcare sector. Associated technical installations must also be taken into account when planning hospitals.

Hospital Planning

The Challenge

Modern hospitals bundle a lot of tasks in the health and disease area. In addition, they are confronted with technical and technological developments such as digitalization, cost pressure, personnel management, financing requirements and complex award processes.
Hospital planners are primarily tasked with designing buildings that are as cost- and space-efficient as possible. At the same time, everything must be designed as flexibly as possible so that technological developments of the coming years and decades can be integrated without great effort. This poses a major challenge in the case of conversions in existing buildings.

Hospital Planning

Your added value

Our clients have one principal for construction planning and implementation in the field of healthcare facilities, and that is us. We have years of experience and knowledge of how to plan and construct a building so that it optimally fulfills the required function. We speak the language of medical staff and understand their requirements.
As a general planner, we work closely with the client from the initial idea to commissioning. The structuring of the building and the layout are designed based on the operational organization. The requirements for the building are either defined by the client or developed with them. In doing so, we ensure that all building code requirements, especially fire and sanitary codes, as well as energy efficiency are met or implemented in such a way that the building’s purpose can be optimally fulfilled.
Precise structuring and technical knowledge ensure that we guarantee cost stability and adherence to deadlines. We put the construction services out to tender, support our clients in the awarding of these services and, as the local construction supervisor, handle the implementation. The scheduling and technical interface with the process technology supplier is important.
