In my Masters year at University I led a multi-disciplinary team of engineers in the design of an Orthopaedic Hospital.

Orthopaedic Hospital Design

  1. 1. BREEAM OUTSTANDING ACCREDITED HOSPITAL ARCHITECTURAL CONCEPTS:  The hospital layout is designed around clinical adjacencies to ensure it is highly functional.  Patient orientated design that promotes health and wellbeing.  Intuitive layout reduces the stresses of wayfinding within the hospital. MISSION STATEMENT  Wherever possible natural daylight is introduced and views to the outside are The building design and engineering strategy follows the needs of a 21st century healthcare facility provided. – providing a therapeutic environment that promotes health and well-being, is patient orientated,  The facade design follows a modern, simple and efficient statement design. intuitive and flexible to future needs. The aim is to design a positive impact building that uses fewer  Each floor is divided into 3 main fire compartments.
