Amphia Ziekenhuis, Development Concept, NL

Key data:

20.000 m2 new
10.000 m2 refurb

Period:
2009 - 2013

The project concerns the adaptation of the Amphia Ziekenhuis with an initial development area of 30.000 m2.

LH2 developed the development concept together with 4building consultants.

The hospital is divided into three different locations and the redevelopment concept should allow the concentration of the hospital activities on two sites.

The key considerations in this study were aspects of phasing and development of the new hospital with minimal disturbance of the ongoing operation of the existing hospital.
