Assistance Publique des Hôpitaux de Paris has just awarded Groupe GA the contract to design and construct an autonomous outpatient surgery platform on the largest hospital site in Europe.
This new unit, dedicated to short-duration treatments, will extend over approximately 2,000 m² and will notably include 5 operating theatres, one post-anaesthesia care unit (PACU) with 8 beds and 14 day hospital beds.
Designed by TLR Architecture, the building has a contemporary architecture and the design of the façades reinterprets that of the neighbouring buildings, and sits perfectly in the historic site of Pitié-Salpêtrière.
Inside, special attention has been paid to the care pathway, prioritising a go-forward principle from entering through to leaving the unit. The design of the different areas also contributes to the overall patient treatment quality. To favour their comfort and well-being, the pre-operative waiting and rest areas have been specially designed to be cosy and welcoming.
Groupe GA’s characteristic industrial approach will allow for rapid execution, with just 5 months of studies and 7 months of works, all the while limiting constraints and nuisance caused to the activity of the institution to the maximum extent possible.
To further optimise leadtimes and execution quality, the specialist company Getinge Maquet will also be deploying an industrialised approach in the modular and integrated design of the operating theatres.
This project, which aligns perfectly with Groupe GA's strategy in the area of health, aims to promote an innovative construction approach, offering a relevant alternative to traditional and modular construction methods.
For this project, Groupe GA is also drawing on the expertise of specialist design offices AEC Ingénierie and Beming as well as the teams of Hervé Thermique for the air treatment and plumbing works.
