The new wing of the CHR in Namur is the third and last phase of a larger project, initiated in the ’80s by the office. It represents a total surface area of 11,600 m², distributed over 8 floors, 7 of which are above ground, and is equipped with state of the art, future-proof installations. The new wing includes, amongst others, 6 operating blocks (including one hybrid block), which are structured around a post-operative monitoring and care room. The latest, cutting edge equipment has been included in each of the operating rooms: image digitalisation, the latest generation of operating room lighting, etc… The remainder of the programme consists, in particular, of laboratories, consultation and hospitalisation areas, physiotherapy, dialysis and administration departments. These are distributed between the 8 floors, whose configuration is intentionally flexible and designed for efficiency.
This extension is distinguished by a contemporary design and sustainable energy efficiency. Particular attention has been paid to the well-being of the patients. The interior has been designed as a combined effect of colours and lighting in order to avoid a clinical atmosphere. Large windows provide an abundance of natural light throughout the building, and offer a panoramic view over the Meuse.
Development of the 420 bed general hospital. Medicine, surgery, paediatric, maternity, geriatric and neonatal units. Incorporation of the provincial maternity department, a day clinic, new functional connections, the construction of a new reception and a new “Health Area” extension.
