Leading consulting group with a 360° approach
The objective to integrate patient treatment, research and teaching has made the project particularly demanding. The solution therefore seeks to plan and design every individual building as an organizational unit including wards, day treatment and operating units with adjoining functions.
COWI’s solution anticipates rapid and unpredictable development in diagnostics, treatment, research and medical technology and therefore facilitates a continuous reorganization of the operation of the hospital and includes sketch designs for possible future extensions.
Knowledge Centre: BIM (Building Information Modelling)Building Information Modelling (BIM) was used in the first phase of designing the Knowledge Centre. It is one of the first projects of this size in Norway that is carried out using BIM.
The use of BIM means that developers can download all the necessary information about the seperate elements of the construction project in a structured way - including full 3D geometry. This is used for progress and procurement planning, and for checking the design against requirements, solutions, etc.
