In thinking about a new hospital, Dutch Hospital Design is very aware that it will be used by the next generation. That is why we conceive many future scenarios, and the new building must accommodate them all. In view of its calculated lifespan, the design of a Next Generation Hospital must take the next generation into account. After all, the building is geared to next generation occupants with a next generation mentality.
That can only be achieved if we focus on the future. But the future is hard to predict, especially in a time of accelerated change. The answer must be a future-proof building. It must be sustainable, smart, flexible, high-quality and supported by ICT. And of course it must be a building that is a pleasure to work and stay in.
Next generation hospital
To create such a building, Dutch Hospital Design seeks a high level of ICT support. Various computer and simulation models facilitate process and construction innovation. We begin by defining the working procedures in the hospital and end with the facility management of the building through ICT. The help of a Building Information Model (BIM) plays a determinative role here. It not only contributes to a high level of spatial insight into the building but also supports all sorts of decisions about investment and operating costs, energy, logistics and so on.
With over ten years experience using BIM, we are among the leaders in the field in Europe.
