New hospital in Finland uses BIM to involve staff in design process

The new Hospital Nova in Finland has used BIM models and VR to involve over 350 staff in the building design. As the first completely new hospital to be built in the Central Finland Healthcare District since the 1970s, Hospital Nova aims to be modern and efficient. With planned opening in late 2020, the project is an entirely new concept compared to traditional hospitals, with a target to cut operating costs by 10%. Due to the ambitious nature of the project, the project team wanted to involve staff in the design of the hospital to ensure it would meet everyone’s needs. Mikko Jylha, project director at Hospital Nova, said: “Our objective was to engage hospital staff in the project before construction had even started, by allowing them to visit the building virtually. “Right from the early stages we wanted to share the new designs, collaborate with the building’s future users and gather vital feedback for the design process.” Hospital Nova used Tridify to convert their BIM models into virtual models. Tridify’s automated service processed the architect BIM files into 3D interactive models, saving the hospital a lot of time and effort.
