Denton Corker Marshall was engaged as Design Architect for the 311 bed campus-style King Hamad University Hospital. Equipped with state-of-the-art medical technology, the 66,000m2 hospital accommodates nine internal wards and nine digitalised operating theatres to provide general, accident and emergency services.
The hospital is divided into three wings, over four levels. Each wing is connected via glazed link bridges to form a unified design. A series of landscaped berms partially conceals the lower floor and reduces the overall scale of the building.
The facility includes a helipad capable of landing military Blackhawk helicopters for emergency relief.
