WCN Editorial Team 2 Mar 2022 EUROPE BUILDINGS

Monaco has appointed Vinci Construction to construct the new Princess Grace Hospital in the country.

Scope of this €98m contract includes construction of the first new building, which will have16 storeys and a six-level underground car park and cover a total of 65,000m2 of floor space.

This project is part of the government’s plan to extend and modernise Princess Grace Hospital.

The new building will be adjacent to the current hospital.

Construction work will not disrupt the hospital's activity, stated Vinci.

Vinci’s construction team will use a Building Information Modelling (BIM) system for construction design.

Construction works will be completed at the end of 2025.

During the earth-moving and earth-retaining works, a dome will be set up to reduce noise pollution.

The dome will feature 70 cables, each 37 metres long, holding 2,800m2 of sound-absorbing sheets to cut down noise from the construction work to up to 12 decibels (dBA).

This project also forms part of VINCI Construction's plan to mainstream the use of Exegy low-carbon concrete, under which: 85 % of the concrete used at the worksite will be low-carbon, thereby reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 30%.

The complete building will feature high performance-concrete rippling sun breakers, which will offer patients with several openings to let in daylight, with most of the rooms featuring a sea view.
