Kawasaki Hospital

Using a mega Structural system with so-called Hercules Columns, a 733 bed hospital including a 30meter overhang is lifted over the existing hospital to allow continuous operation of the existing hospital while carrying out a complete rebuilding.

Shortening of construction period, easy renewal of electrical/mechanical systems, realization of a general logistics system within the hospital and comprehensive medical records system, radiant A/C systems, evacuation elevators placed within pressurized smoke containment zones are among the many innovative technologies adopted in the project.
