The Assar – Ingenium – Greisch team wins the competition for the construction of a new hospital complex intended to replace the current infrastructure of the Saint-Pierre Clinic in Ottignies. The building will be located in Wavre, bordering the E411 and the N25, and will be resolutely turned towards the future.
The Saint-Pierre clinic in Ottignies is 45 years old and is now cramped within its walls. Despite multiple investments in the modernization and extension of the infrastructure, the building is no longer able to respond to the profound changes in a constantly evolving hospital sector.
It is therefore in a green setting in the heart of Walloon Brabant that a new 75,000 m² complex will arise. Created with an environmentally friendly approach in mind, the project will take into account the main lines of the landscape to develop the various activities.
Spatial flexibility, patient comfort, ergonomics and care path are all themes that are placed at the heart of the future hospital by the design team. The total cost of the operation will amount to more than 300 million euros, including 168 million works studied by the team.
In addition, the project will be particularly advanced in a BIM approach, which, in the hospital sector, takes on a very particular dimension. The multiple areas of specialty related to hospital construction are indeed so closely intertwined and interconnected that BIM is necessary to effectively anticipate inconsistencies and incompatibilities that previously could only be seen at the time of execution.
In conclusion, bureau greisch continues to evolve, strengthened by its partnerships in the construction or transformation of several hospital complexes such as, among others, the Delta Hospital (Assar Architects), the CHC MontLégia (Artau – Assar – Hoet + Minne), the Marie Curie hospital in Charleroi and the extension of the CHU Tivoli (Art & Build), Vivalia and the HPS Les Marronniers (archipelago), AZ Zeno in Knokke (Buro II & Archi + I – Aaprog – Boeckx & Partners), the Edith Cavell clinics (Assar Architects) or the accesses and surroundings of the Grand Hôpital de Charleroi.
