Use and maintenance
The work isn’t done when the hospital opens. After all, that’s the start of a long period in which the design is tested in reality. Logistics and all ICT must function smoothly, and services have to work properly. A facility management system may be needed. The building is like a machine that works the way it was designed. And this machine needs proper, planned maintenance. A building manual helps.
Dutch Hospital Design foresees the need to anticipate alterations because of the time between analysis and construction. Such alterations are no problem because the system can easily adapt. Dutch Hospital Design can accompany and advise you throughout this interesting period of operation.
