As part of the FourCare consortium we are constructing a brand new nine-story main building next to the Radboudumc’s current main entrance.
By joining forces, the FourCare consortium has four times as much knowledge and expertise in-house for the new construction and renovation of hospitals
We provide the management, operations and installations. Also, in Rotterdam, we opened four smart charge plazas, at which Vehicle to Grid (V2G) charge points are connected on one grid. At one of these plaza’s, predictive Artificial Intelligence (AI) is deployed to investigate whether smart charging of electric cars can be optimised.
FourCare is looking forward to contributing to the ambitions of the hospital with its expertise. The fact that the Radboudumc wants to be at the forefront of technology and innovation makes this a very interesting and fun project as there are many smart components in the new building. The sustainability aspect is also crucial as the Radboudumc is committed to sustainable, innovative and affordable health care. The hospital aims to be energy-neutral by 2030.
Consortium FourCare starts “renovation” of Radboudumc for care of the future
Next to the Radboudumc's current main entrance, a brand new nine-story main building is rising. The construction was carried out by consortium FourCare, consisting of Trebbe, Van Wijnen, our company and Unica. By joining forces, FourCare has four times as much knowledge and expertise in-house for the new construction and renovation of hospitals. As a single team with proven results in collaboration, the consortium will now also create a new environment for the Radboudumc that meets the wishes and needs of patients, staff and visitors.
Precisely because the UMC is investing heavily in smart technology and new work processes, construction can be more compact and there will be 100,000 fewer square meters than in the old building. It goes without saying that this efficiency improvement will not adversely affect patients or healthcare professionals. The new Main Building replaces a large number of buildings that no longer meet the Radboudumc's current requirements and standards. Various specialisms will soon be working together in the main building, which will house outpatient clinics, nursing wards, day surgery and office space for medical staff. The new main entrance to the Radboudumc will also be located in this building.
Sustainable hospital of the future
For the design of the new building, the Radboudumc already received the international BREEAM excellent certificate. The certificate is fully in line with the Radboudumc's commitment to maximizing the health of its buildings, while minimizing their impact on the environment. Light, air, space, view and a green environment in the form of gardens and rooftop terraces play an important role in the new building.
A novelty in the new building are the 150 smart-design single patient rooms, which will comply with the principles of “healing environment”. Thanks to video projection on the walls, the atmosphere of the room can be adapted to the wishes of the patient, and the same applies to the furnishing of the rooms.
