HOK and BDP shortlisted for £90m Danish hospital
Teams asked to submit designs for 30,800sq m extension
HOK, BDP and CF Moller are among seven practices shortlisted in a competition for one of Denmark’s largest healthcare facilities.
Hvidovre Hospital in Copenhagen, with more than 40,000 patient admissions a year, is looking to expand its facilities by 10% to accommodate the emergency department, maternity and children’s facilities and cardiology.
The seven teams will be required to submit designs for a £90 million extension to the 1970s building by May.
A winner is expected to be announced later in 2013, with construction planned between 2016 and 2018.
Andrew Barraclough, director at HOK’s London office which is working on the project, said they were delighted to be shortlisted.
“This is an important project for the local community in Copenhagen and forms part of Denmark’s major investment in its healthcare infrastructure,” he said.
“The existing hospital, originally opened in 1979, is one of Denmark’s largest and this project involves the creation of a new masterplan to respond to the hospital’s vision of providing future expansion capability for new services, initially totalling over 30,000sq m.”
