Swedish construction firm NCC has secured a contract from the Hovedstaden region of Denmark for the construction of the first phase of the New North Zealand Hospital in Hillerød, Denmark.

The contract for the first phase of the project is worth approximately SEK1.7bn ($178.8m) of the overall contract of SEK3.4bn ($357.6m).

Under the contract, NCC will deliver the first phase of the project, which includes construction planning along with ground, wastewater, concrete and steel works.

Simultaneously, the construction firm will also be responsible for the tendering and procuring façades and roofs and a service centre for the hospital under the second phase.

Additionally, the firm is responsible for tendering and procuring the interior, different types of installations along with landscaping work in the third phase of work.

Touted be the largest single construction project ever in North Zealand, the four-storey facility is shaped like a four-leaf clover.

Covering over an area of 118,000m², the hospital will comprise more than 580 single bed wards that are expected to serve over 310,000 people in the region.

The bottom two floors of the building will include diagnosis and treatment facilities while the top two storeys will include a ribbon of wards surrounded with a roof garden.

New North Zealand Hospital project manager Henrik Schødts said: “You need a committed contractor to build such a large hospital for the people of North Zealand and NCC has a key role in ensuring the hospital becomes something special.

“We have great expectations of NCC. This is particularly true as regards running an efficient and digital construction process, where we can follow the timetables and budget in detail to enable us to make the right decisions together. This is how we will build a special hospital for our inhabitants.”

Danish consulting engineering group Ramboll was selected to provide structural and MEP engineering services. It will also serve as the sustainability consultant and project management consultant for the new hospital.

Further, Copenhagen company MOE was also selected to provide structural, sustainability consulting and MEP engineering services and COWI will be the client-consultant for the project, while Lohfert & Lohfert has been selected to provide operation planning services.
