The Haga hospital is realised by a so-called PPS (Public-Private Collaboration) construction. Our team’s tender was chosen, based on a substantiated design by Meyer en Van Schooten.
Van Rossum designed the concepts for the whole excavation; a basement next to an existing building and the multi- storey buildings. Our construction advice made for a clearly designed building. Clarity and simplicity are important features in the construction so that architects can create a unique building. Furthermore risk control will be manageable this way.
At Van Rossum we consider that to be one of our main jobs; to realize a building by having efficient process control. Of course a relation of trust between the architect, contractor and the structural engineer is essential.
