In an elimination that began with 14 participants in the starting line-up, CuraVita won the competition for their design of a new 133,730 m2 hospital just outside Herning, Denmark known as the New Hospital in the West. With this honoring selection, they have taken a big step toward the construction of their professionally ambitious and attractive hospital to ensure a hospital of international standard. More images and architects’ description after the break.

CuraVitas’ project distinguishes itself by being tailored to the landscape and the exact needs of the hospital. The project is far from fabrics. It is clear that CuraVita listened to the needs of the competition and really managed to draw the lines of a Western Jutland Hospital. The project is now ready to be a completely new hospital that has been based on the patient’s need for consistency during hospitalization or outpatient visits.

In the final design, they will closely involve the future users, and it will certainly help to maintain focus on patient needs consistency. The companies involved in the consortium bears together on a number of important lessons from previous similar projects in both Denmark and Scandinavia. Thus, they have great confidence that there will be a strong focus on compliance with time schedules and the economic framework.

Construction of the New Hospital in West – DNV Gødstrup – received a preliminary commitment from the government at 3.15 billion. million in 2009-money. The plan is stuck on the first spade in the ground in late summer 2012. Hospitals in Herning and Holstebro begins relocation to DNV Gødstrup late 2016.\
