People-centred and focused on its patients, staff and students, the new Odense University Hospital (OUH) and Health Sciences faculty (SUND) will naturally occupy a special place on the world map of health care.
The new Odense University Hospital and Faculty of Health Sciences are prepared to become climate-neutral in the future. The building is low-energy class 1, and through the establishment of solar and geothermal heating and solar power, it can be upgraded to a climate-neutral building.
EKJ has been involved in the day-to-day project management for the consortium’s project team, including the establishment of a joint project office, building up the project management’s support functions for overall financial management, risk management, planning and schedules, reporting, quality and environmental management and strategy/plan for complex contracts and tenders.
