Thorough analysis alone can lead to the heart of the commission. Before starting to design, Dutch Hospital Design first analyses the commission. We do that to clarify the whole context. And for hospitals, that context is wide-ranging. It encompasses healthcare demand, hospital organization, business model, current way of working, ICT infrastructure, as well as spatial context, siting and existing buildings.
A comprehensive concept forms an integral answer to the commission, a structure that supports all ideas. The phase in which a comprehensive concept takes shape is probably the most important of all. A powerful concept determines the development of the design. What’s more, a comprehensive concept incorporates future scenarios.
Dutch Hospital Design designs your state-of-the-art hospital in an integral manner, and Dutch Hospital Design ensures that all elements of your hospital are in perfect balance with one another. Dutch Hospital Design can only create a fully integral design by working with all the disciplines involved on an equal basis and with a shared aim. Finding the perfect combination of functionality, beauty and sustainability is a creative and inspiring process.
During the engineering phase, DHD elaborates all details and experts ensure that the design really can be made as planned. From the site layout, to the selection of greenery, to the façade, to the fittings inside the rooms, to the choice of door handles — DHD considers every single detail during the design engineering.
What could be better than the phase in which a virtual world becomes real? There’s something magical about construction. And particularly the construction of large, complex projects that involve a big collective, intensive effort. But this magic must be steered in the right direction. After all, this is the phase that involves the biggest number of people.
The proof of the pudding is in the eating. And DHD wants to be there when the eating is going on. 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.
