GRIHA-rated state-of-the-art multispecialty hospital

A multispecialty hospital with state-of-the-art architecture and medical facilities, this project is being made in collaboration with one of the biggest names in Indian healthcare. The endeavour is to make this hospital a 5 star GRIHA-rated building.

The Beginning

Our client approached us for this hospital with 200 beds and a vision to make it a GRIHA-rated building. One of the biggest challenges we faced is the change in operator mid-way through the project. The new operator envisioned the addition of 100 beds to the building, making the team modify the structure and outer facade while the building was already in construction.

The fivD effect

A GRIHA-rated building demands certain parameters. As a team, we incorporated the tasks into our design seamlessly. The team incorporated the new medical program while coordinating with construction on site and MEP services. The operators introduced a lot fo constraints in terms of additional requirements and vastu compliances to be followed. The challenge was to restructure the design in a way that it keeps the structural integrity and design intent intact.

With new rooms being added, new OPDs, ICUs and OTs had to be accommodated. A new structure was designed and floors were added. Specific requirements for building in terms of operations had to be kept in mind while designing the internal structure to ensure a systemic flow to the

hospital. Some new service lines such as Nuclear medicine, Linac bunkers and day care facilities were also introduced and designed to work seamlessly with the existing planning.

Not only did we manage to work around the additions and make room for the additional departments, we also devised ways to make the external facade look aesthetic.

While unforeseen challenges like new operators, the pandemic and pollution norms kept shifting the project timelines, there was nothing that deterred our team at fivD. The project is a testament to the idea that with the right team, a challenge often becomes an opportunity.
