Nordic construction giant NCC will be landing the project to build the latest super hospital in Denmark, the ’New North Zealand Hospital’ in Hillerød.
The super hospital building, which was designed by Herzog & de Meuron in conjunction with and Vilhelm Lauritzen Architects, will have four storeys and be made up of 118,000 square metres. It is is designed in the shape of a four-leaf clover, with a focus on integrating nature and daylight into as much of the building as possible.
The construction budget is valued at approximately SEK 3.4 billion, and NCC Building Nordics will serve as main contractor, according to a press release.
“We are very proud to construct this unique hospital, which will benefit thousands of patients, relatives and employees. The client has from the outset focused on collaboration, so the conditions are highly favorable for a good outcome,” says Palle Bjerre Rasmussen, Head of NCC Building Nordics in Denmark.
A highly digitalised process
NCC is already well-versed in the industry of building hospitals. They also have extensive knowledge in how to carry out their construction in a digitalised fashion.
Project Manager for the New North Zealand Hospital, Henrik Schødts, notes that for a big undertaking such as the construction of a super hospital “it is essential that all relevant information about the construction process is available to the parties involved.” Adding that “[t]his imposes considerable demands on digital literacy skills, which we are convinced that NCC possesses.”
NCC operates in the four Nordic countries: Sweden, Denmark, Norway and Finland.
The company comprises five business sectors, namely NCC Infrastructure, NCC Building Sweden, NCC Building Nordics, NCC Industry and NCC Property Development.
We believe that information should be free and will therefore never put up a paywall.
