Etlik Health Campus
The Turkish Ministry of Health commissioned a futuristic project in 2011 for the construction of the largest hospital in Europe. The works, lasting four years, will end in 2019 with the construction of about 3.600 beds divided into eight structures and a hotel.
Work on the construction of the new complex began in 2015 in Varlk, in the Yenimhalle district of the Ankara province. The new pole will extend for a total area of 1.071.000 square meters, where there will be eight hospital facilities, a hotel, a convention center, commercial areas and a parking space for 11.000 cars.
The structure built, then managed under concession through the system BOT (Build Operate Transfer), will generate employment for about 20.000 people and will arrive to accommodate about 50.000 people a day, including medical staff, patients and visitors.
The works will be entirely carried out by the Astaldi Group in a joint venture with a 51% stake with the Turkish construction company Turkerler. On the other hand, Studio Altieri, already Astaldi’s partner in numerous projects, dealt with integrated planning.
REACT supported the Altieri Studio in the BIM design of part of the central core, of the six towers and the Conference Center. We have also worked on the design of mechanical and hydraulic systems in BIM, with particular attention to air conditioning and fire protection.
To support Studio Altieri in integrated design, we have created a multidisciplinary BIM model for architecture, structures and systems. We have manage a great deal of information, verifying and guaranteeing the exact correspondence between calculations and project. For the MEP systems, we dealt mainly with the areas related to air conditioning, ventilation and fire protection, and then focusing on the design of the drains, hydronic circuits and systems for pneumatic post. Through the BIM models, we were able to solve the various criticalities typical of such a large building complex, and to produce in a short time the the documentation necessary for the progress of the works. Finally, an “as built” model of the entire complex is still under development, in order to guarantee a 360-degree control of each individual component for future operators of the work.
