The Aarau Cantonal Hospital (KSA) has selected a proposal from the Marti-BAM joint venture for the construction of the Aarau Cantonal Hospital in Switzerland.

The joint venture’s ‘Dreiklang’ ‘(Triad) building concept, which has been selected by the Aarau Cantonal Hospital directors, features integrated functionality and flexibility.

Described as ‘three dimensions in harmony’, the concept has clear separation of outpatient and inpatient medicine, BAM said.

The Dreiklang project has been developed by a joint venture comprising Marti Gesamtleitungen, BAM Swiss and BAM Deutschland. Burckhardt & Partner and Wörner Traxler Richter are the architects.

Subject to final approval expected in the third quarter of 2019, construction is scheduled to commence in 2020. The new hospital is planned to be operational in 2024.

BAM has already implemented major hospital projects in Germany and Switzerland.

The proposed Dreiklang projected comprises three main areas, outpatient clinics, functional areas and ward stations, which are united by the overall structure.

BAM said that the ‘Dreiklang’ concept is based on short distances for staff and patients at the hospital.

The building’s ground floor will house highly frequented departments such as emergency, radiology or outpatient departments of internal medicine, while the surgical disciplines will be located on the first floor.

The second floor will comprise the interventional and conservative disciplines and intensive care, whereas the third floor will include a mother-child centre, including neonatology.

BAM Swiss and BAM Deutschland, in partnership with Marti Generalunternehmung, have recently completed the five-storey Felix Platter-Hospital in Basel, for Felix Platter-Spital.

The new hospital, which has 320 beds, gathers all necessary facilities, including outpatient, diagnostic and inpatient departments.

In February 2019, BAM Deutschland in joint venture with Max Bögl Stiftung, has won a contract for the second phase of the business campus of Wüstenrot & Württembergische (W&W) in Kornwestheim, in the German state of Baden-Württemberg.

The joint venture, Arge ‘Neubau Campus W & W, 2. BA’, will deliver a high-quality campus complex with a total floor space of 86,000m² for W&W employees.
