Special features

  • The construction work, which took place next to a functioning hospital, went well: despite the challenging project, location and order of implementation, the functioning hospital was able to work normally throughout the construction of the Front Yard project without jeopardising patient safety.
  • Employees and clients will be provided with new, first-class hospital premises on schedule.
  • The new, functioning hospital premises were built for the needs of the patients that need them most urgently, such as children, young people, patients with musculoskeletal and heart diseases, as well as women in childbirth and people undergoing vascular surgery and radiology procedures.
  • The key personnel in SRV’s project and site organisation was involved throughout the project, which ensured that work has progressed smoothly and the project proceeded in a professional and punctual way from start to finish.
  • This site was characterised by a very strong and exacting culture of occupational safety. No serious accidents occurred on-site since construction began.
