Flexible Super Hospital in Charleroi, Belgium
The new Super Hospital of Charleroi is one of the largest hospital projects in Belgium (960 beds). Royal HaskoningDHV works together with VK Architects & Engineers and Reservoir Architects. In the design, the Dutch ‘Schillen Method’ was applied. In addition, similar functions are grouped in a specific building typology. This results in a flexible campus with logical interpretation and efficient care organization. Also, a hybrid approach is possible: the structure conforms to the accounting care organization. This method also ensures an optimal flexibility on healthcare real estate and even makes future adaptations of the facilities possible (other than health sector). The project financiers and the EIB (European Investment Bank) welcomed this approach warmly.
healthcare, education and scientific research. The current capacity is 1.100 beds. The hospital is to become a new modern ‘Healthcare city’ of 40 Ha with 500.000 m² medical treatment area and 400.000 m² dormitory area. The oncology center will be fitted with PV cells, a solar boiler, high temperature cooling and low temperature heating. Furthermore, the design of the building is very compact, flexible and modular.

Sirinthorn Hospital & Ramathibodi Hospital,
Image and perception are increasingly important for healthcare institutions. Beside the quality of care and the location, the hospital’s architectural design and interior design play a major role.
An accessible location, a recognizable building, clear routing, stimulating atmosphere and a comfortable building climate are important issues for the image of a health care facility. Image and perception contribute to the efficiency of work processes, reduction of absence through illness and promote healing. We strive for hospitable buildings where design and experience contribute positively to the use of the building. This means an efficient and inspiring working environment for employees and a safe and comfortable place for diagnostic treatment and recovery for patients.
At Ramathibodi Hospital and Sirinthorn Hospital, the interior design is based on hotel interiors. A comfortable and hospitable environment is created by IA Design 103 (a company of Royal HaskoningDHV).
