Lean, Green, & BIM for Hospital Buildings or "The Road to ZERO"

In order to save resources for the future and reduce waste in hospital building, ATP architects engineers makes the case for recycling and re-use friendly design with BIM.

This press release includes:

Press Release  (3494 character)

"Health sector buildings are regarded as a special category of buildings because they put the common good at the heart of their core processes", explained Professor Christoph M. Achammer, CEO of ATP, during the expert discussion at the Open Day in Nuremberg.

This is why it is so important that the design process ensures from day one that hospital buildings don’t become a burden for people at a later date. The huge responsibility of the construction sector – as a major producer of CO2 emissions – obliges all those involved to think differently, said the architect and professor at the TU Wien. "Only when we ensure that all participants in the design process are conscious of this from the very start we can arrive at good solutions with the help of interdisciplinary cooperation."

Research into the digitally supported integrated design of recyclable and reusable structures is one of the tasks that ATP has set itself as a pioneer of BIM in the DACH Region. According to the architect Lars Oberwinter, "Building Information Modeling (BIM) is the most suitable instrument for supporting efficient integrated design processes. We can help to illustrate the potential savings across the entire lifecycle." The Managing Director of the ATP consulting company Plandata confirmed that BIM simulations during the very first design phase significantly increase energy efficiency and environmental sustainability. The next development step is the complete integration of the medical technology in the digital data model.

Jens Glöggler demonstrated how buildings are to be accompanied on the path to climate neutrality and ZERO emissions. The Managing Director of ATP sustain, an ATP research company in the areas of sustainable designing and building, also sees himself playing an advisory role here: "In order to implement the EU’s Green Deal we help our clients to see economic targets not as ends in themselves, but as ways of achieving healthy living and working conditions, an intact environment, and a minimal environmental impact."

About ATP Nuremberg
ATP Nuremberg is one of five ATP offices in Germany and is considered as the "Health Competence Center" within the ATP Group due its specialization in health sector buildings. The Open Day celebrated the successful transformation of an architectural office for hospital design that was integrated into the group in 2018 into a fully-fledged ATP office: The currently 40-strong team led by Andreas Rieser now has hospital specialists in all necessary design disciplines – architecture, structural and building services engineering, and site supervision – and can also draw upon the expertise of the 900+ colleagues in the ATP network. ATP Nuremberg is designing hospitals and clinics from the Metropolitan Region of Nuremberg, via Cologne and Passau, to the University Medical Center in Rostock – which is the largest project currently being realized by the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.
