Renovation of the hospital with high hygiene requirements
The new treatment centre occupies 14,000 m2 in the courtyard created by the hospital's original construction in the shape of the figure eight. The centre is constructed as a pair of atriums.
Glass corridors connect these new buildings with the existing ones. New operating theatres and hospital wards are located on the 1st and 2nd floors of the centre.
Gyptone acoustic ceilings were chosen for all ceiling areas in the new treatment centre. Due to hygiene requirements, Gyptone BIG Base was selected for all operating theatres. In addition, in 12 of these operating theatres, openings were made in the Gyptone BIG Base ceilings to allow for a sterile air-cleaning system, Laminar Airflow, a special technology used during operations when it is vital to ensure that airborne infections are avoided.
Laminar Airflow, a special technology used during operations when it is vital to ensure that airborne infections are avoided. For these openings, the ceiling space was replaced with a white gauze through which purified air flows into the operating theatre.
The choice for the wards and corridors was Gyptone Trap Point 11.
All spaces and rooms are designed in colours, which are light and bright – a general colour scheme very different from that which is beginning to appear in the wards of new hospitals.
In addition, the building materials were selected with consideration given to recycling and the materials’ lifecycle impact.
