Byggnad 27, NUS
A functional and flexible medical building for health care, research and education.
The County Council of Västerbotten expands the Norrland University Hospital by a new wing dedicated to clinics for cancer treatment, children, youths and women.
The new hospital wing includes premises for radiation, nuclear medicine, research laboratories and education facilities.
The project vision was to build a fully flexible hospital to meet future change. In the centre of the new building there is a large glazed atrium where entrances, cafeteria, classrooms and meeting points are situated.
A key factor has been to facilitate interactivity between institutes and units. Another project goal was to focus on the patient, creating an environment that gives a quick recovery. The environmental issues have been most important, focusing on energy saving. The energy use for both heating and cooling is reduced by 50 %.
LINK arkitektur delivered services including architecture, interior design, laboratory design and project management. BIM was used for the design.
