Arup lands Hong Kong hospital projects contract


Arup, a leading UK-based based company providing engineering, design, planning, project management and consulting services, has been appointed by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority to provide project management consultancy services for two major hospital developments – the New Acute Hospital (NAH) and the redevelopment of the Prince of Wales Hospital (PWH).

These are the two largest projects under the Hong Kong government’s 10-year Hospital Development Plan to cope with the growing and ageing population, according to a statement from Arup.  

The NAH, to be built in the Kai Tak Development Area with a construction floor area (CFA) of 500,000 sq m, will be the largest hospital in Hong Kong.

This 8-year project includes five buildings, delivering a comprehensive range of acute secondary and tertiary hospital services, with modern service models incorporating advanced technology and facilities, said the statement.

This hospital will house 2,400 beds, 32 operating theatres, a designated trauma centre, providing accident and emergency, clinical, ambulatory and rehabilitation services. The facilities will also include a community health centre, helipad, public waterfront promenade with link bridges and subways, it added.

"Our Programme and Project Management team will lead and manage the projects from planning to execution while aligning all stakeholders with the programme vision and requirements," said a company spokesman.
The PWH redevelopment will group the currently scattered clinical services to enhance accessibility while providing additional space for operational needs and service developments, he added.-TradeArabia News Service
