Overall Score

The project involves the design and construction for a new Specialist Out-patient Clinic in QEH. The new building consists of public entrance halls on the lower floors and specialty clinical departments and supporting facilities on the upper floors. A new covered walkway in front of existing ACC and 2 new link bridges connecting existing Block H & ACC allow the building to serve as the main pedestrian hub with the aim to strengthen the existing facilities and ambulatory care services of QEH extended to patients.

Besides, sustainability is an integral part of the holistic design concept that it could play a major role in providing a more natural and less clinical environment to patients. Primary design includes the maximum inclusion of natural day lighting of public and patient areas throughout the building, a series of healthy stairs integrate with the building’s vertical circulation system, a strong indoor-outdoor connection and vertical greenery diffuses carpark exhaust with natural ventilation.
