Egis will supervise the construction of the new Liège hospital (Belgium)

The future CHC (Christian Hospital Centre) of Liège, Belgium, focuses on a better welcoming of patients, on an architecture at the service of health care, and on a revamping of the brownfield site on which it will be built. Egis has been chosen as the Managing Constructor for this complex until its opening in 2017.

Engineering at the service of patients

For that operation, the CHC entrusts Egis with the task of Construction Management, independently of the companies involved. Thanks to its multidisciplinary expertise, Egis will apply its mastery of hospital-related techniques, of costs and delivery times for an exhaustive operation, and its know-how in the organisation and connection of interfaces (companies, concession holder, operating company). Its expertise in Project Management covers the Study and Works phases, and includes a specific responsibility for safety and security on the worksite. A team of 12 Egis engineers is dedicated to this project.

A high-tech hospital

The new hospital designed by the architects AAH (Artau-Assar Architects-Hoet + Minne) will open its doors in 2017 and will pool the activities of the clinics of St-Joseph (Liège), L'Espérance (Montegnée) and St-Vincent (Rocourt). Designed in view of providing ergonomic solutions to its users (patients, health care providers, suppliers), the hospital will offer the patients a personalised pathway, in a truly modern healthcare institution:

  • Low-Energy building;
  • Architecture focusing on light (wide openings, natural light in the living areas);
  • Advanced medicine and avant-garde equipment within a human environment;
  • Nice view to the city; easily accessible by car, public transportation or bike ('Ravel' cycle route);
  • Large parking area (2,000 spaces).

The hospital will offer a wide range of health care (consultations, hospitalisations, medical examinations), with 720 standard hospital beds and 120 day-hospital beds. Its 2,800 staff (employees, physicians and freelance professionals) will be provided with an ergonomic and human environment.

This certification testifies to the excellent quality of the ecological and sustainable management and operation of this real estate complex
