This health infrastructure is the result of a research process carried out, jointly with the Catalan Health System, to respond to the arrival of Covid-19 in March 2020. This process is materialized in an implementable typological model, close to any general hospital, with the aim of supporting the local health network, according to the specific needs of the centre in each circumstance. This Multipurpose Hospital Building, with 56 hospital beds distributed over 2 floors and 32 conventional ICU beds distributed in 3 floors, it is one of the five buildings with the same type built in the Catalan territory during the last quarter of 2020, standing out for its characteristics.


Compact: Its design is conceived to occupy the minimum possible solar surface (975 m2) for a number of 88 beds.


Fast construction: It was built in 20 weeks through the Lean Construction methodology and through a modular and industrialized system, in order to meet deadlines.


Flexible: Thanks to various strategies such as modularity (62 modules 5x15m) and the use of the “parametric window” to allow distribution changes without altering the façade.


Integrated into the environment: The building is supported by the complex’s infrastructures through underground connections.


Safe: Clean and dirty circulations never cross, making the connection between zones through transfers.


Thought for people: Patients, health workers and maintenance personnel are at the centre of the design of this infrastructure, through an architecture that actively participates in the humanization of the health care.
