NCC has built a new and modern children’s hospital directly connected to Queen Silvia’s Hospital for Children and Young People in Gothenburg. This project provides Gothenburg with one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals within the fields of highly specialised child healthcare, clinical research and education.
The new building is an extension of a hospital built in the 1960:s, the two buildings are connected via a colorful glass corridor in tre storeys. The new building spans over nine floors, is 33 000 square metres large with new premises for rehabilitation, surgery, intensive care and administration
Parts of the old building has been renovated in order to be conjoined with the new building. In addition to this, NCC has also built a new supply and distribution for different types of medical material and equipment, as well as a a large culvert system.
Healthcare has evolved a lot since the 1960:s the new building with its moderna setup and equipment makes it it easier for the dedicated staff to do their job. The conditions for the children and their families are also improved greatly, for instance with single rooms and opportunities to stay overnight. The single rooms also contribute to better hospital hygiene, with the reduced risk of the spread of infection.
NCC and Västfastigheter managed the project as a partnering contract - the optimum way of working on complex and large builds, resulting in a better end product.
