The first brick of the CHIREC hospital was laid on Tuesday 25/03/201
The first stone of the future Chirec Delta hospital at Auderghem was laid on 25 March this year. The idea behind the project is to bring the various Brussels Cavell and Parc Léopold hospital sites together on a single site. It will provide at least 550 beds in an ideal location. Works are scheduled to be completed in 2017.
The building in the Delta Etterbeek district of Brussels is a classical, balanced architectural composition: a cylindrical base containing mainly the reception area and consulting rooms, the central unit with up to 24 wards of standardised size on three floors and finally the roof area housing the building services. Placing these different facilities on successive levels reduces the overall footprint of the building. The project is designed to ensure maximum flexibility in the long term. Clear signposting will keep the movement of visitors separate from that of medical and logistics staff.
Integration of the hospital into the city is a key consideration. The layout of the site as a whole has been designed and takes the future urban environment into account.
The RTLInfo website reported the laying of the first brick of the CHIREC hospital on Tuesday 25/03/2014 at Delta in Brussels.
