Four main buildings surround internal courtyards connected by a ring of glass bridges emphasising the connection to nature and natural daylight for enhanced patient recovery.
The layout is standardised to a high extent for flexible use, patient safety and adaptability, allowing a giant lego-like construction with a combination of modular and panelised components assembled both on and off site.
Stavanger University Hospital won the Large Project Building Design category of the 2018 AEC Excellence Awards.
Progress on site
Choosing the right site
Three potential locations were under consideration for the new hospital. We delivered thorough feasibility studies for sites at Ullandhaug, Stokka and Vaaland.
Ullandhaug was chosen as the right location for a new hospital, partly because of its proximity to the University.
