Meander Medical Centre's new hospital in Amersfoort is to be constructed by Heijmans Non-residential Building and Heijmans' subsidiary Burgers Ergon technical services. The settlement agreement was signed on Wednesday 13 January between Meander Medical Centre and Heijmans. The contract price is 175 million.
The new hospital
The new hospital will enable Meander Medical Centre to receive its patients and visitors in a pleasant and customer-friendly environment. In many places patients and visitors will have a view over the surrounding greenery and the River Eem. The hospital has also been designed in such a way that patients and visitors will be able to find their way easily. It comprises a number of sections, accommodating nursing and research departments, operating theaters, a psychiatric center and a parking garage. The buildings are linked through an extensive covered public area. The total floor area of the new Meander Medical Centre is 113,000 m² (GFA), including the parking layer under the building. With this new construction the Meander Medical Centre gains still further opportunities to expand its status as a leading expert clinical training hospital.
The design was produced by Atelier PRO architects from The Hague. The constructional aspects will be carried out by Heijmans Non-residential Building. The settlement agreement also incorporates the order for realising the electrical and mechanical systems by Heijmans' subsidiary Burgers Ergon technical services. This makes this project an excellent example of the integrated approach Heijmans offers its clients.
