Planning, Design and Construction of Healthcare facilities is a very specialised field, which differs from that of other building typologies in complexity of functional relationships between various spaces and activities. However, this specialised field is not only about satisfying the stringent functional demands that the hospital makes on its designer. The emphasis of healthcare architecture is also on improving the quality of the environment for patients and caregivers alike. It must meet the needs of people who use such facilities in times of uncertainty, stress, and dependency on doctors and nurses. It must recognise and support patients' families and friends by providing pleasant spaces. At the same time the building should project an underlying reassurance that the patient is in the hands of competent medical staff and in a technically sound healthcare facility.

Problem Statement

Our aim is to bridge this gap by providing modern yet practical cost effective solutions and designs that satisfies the people living and functioning in the space. In a hospital this includes the Doctors, Nurses, Staff and the Patient. The design of a hospital must meet all their requirements. It is therefore the Architect's duty and responsibility to not only plan for effective treatment, but also help improve patient outcomes by preventing spread of infections and creating scenic surroundings for the patients to feel beter. We need to establish through our Hospital Design that there is proper infection control through superior Planning & Layout of the
• Facility ensuring better Patient & Staff Flow. In addition to Patient Safety, aspects like accessibility to hospital spaces and its ambience is an important contributory factor in improving outcomes.

Design Consideration

• Maximum permissible FSI is 2.5. Effort shall be made to design and complete all requirements under this limit. Using as little FSI as possible, would be desirable by the client. Also, care should be taken so that the planning of activities doesn't exceed BASEMENT + 4 floors of built-up.

• All rooms with patient beds, like private and general wards, OTs, ICUs, emergency rooms etc. must be planned keeping in mind the services that will run through them, like the centerline for gases and suction. Also, provision of distinct airlock zones near Operation theatres must be made so that the risk of contamination of air is minimized as they stop the continuous flow of air.

•Planning of interactive spaces and green areas across the site should be done such that the hospital staff and shop owners can use it together without the need to travel too much.

These are few design considerations after our discussion with the client, the list is exhaustive and is provided to the architects as part of the project brief.
