Hospital Builders offers a comprehensive appraisal of 32 case studies covering significant healthcare projects around the world. A central theme throughout the book is the abiding importance of high-quality hospital architecture and the therapeutic benefits to be gained by friendly, human healthcare environments.
Each is thoroughly analyzed with a critical description, plans, illustrations and photographs to provide creative information that is of assistance to architects, contractors and managers and all those involved in the procurement and subsequent occupation of the facilities.
The ideas and examples are amplified through an exploration of the historical achievements, present circumstances and potential future direction of our modern progressive health service. Current practitioners contribute from first-hand experience and anticipate the implications of private finance initiatives and competitive healthcare partnerships.
Designing and building hospitals is an extraordinarily complicated and expensive task, which requires technical skill and design innovation. Hospital Builders brings together a selection of key projects from around the world to provide the ideal reference for anyone working in this area. Each of the projects has been specifically chosen for their blend of innovation and practicality and are extensively illustrated with images, photographs, plans and explanatory text.
Comprehensive study of a wide variety of styles of hospital buildings.
