PROJECT:

Hospital Extansion / Ambulance Stations, 7,100 sqm / 17 x 90sqm


The brief seeks a bespoke design for 17no. District Ambulance Stations throughout Qatar. Each station comprises an accommodation block providing staff room, kitchen, toilet and services room, a canopied parking bay, fresh water storage, fuel storage and sewage treatment. The design provides a modularised, highly integrated station building. The articulation and expression of elements creates an exciting and identifiable building form. Alternative servicing strategies include solar thermal air conditioning with roof mounted collectors or conventional thermal air conditioning. A roof mounted photovoltaic array offers an option in meeting the electrical load.

Preliminary design and modelling has been completed for a new A&E entrance, ambulance set down, reception and administrative support area for Hamad General Hospital.
