Royal Papworth Hospital

Sustainability and green

The New Papworth Hospital is currently under construction in Cambridge, England. It is being built in a single phase in a new location, some 15 miles from the old one.

The specialized cardiothoracic hospital will provide patients, staff and the local and international community with a leading edge healthcare facility. Its design combines a highly efficient clinical layout with a stunning external appearance, and all this is set in beautifully landscaped grounds which capture the essence of the original rurally located tuberculosis hospital that grew to become the pioneering heart and lung treatment and transplant center of excellence that the hospital is today.

BIM technology will be used in the design phase to maximize energy efficiency and ensure the hospital offers long-term flexibility. The technology is also being used to engage clinicians in the construction process.
