Sacyr Engineering and Infrastructure will construct the new building containing the new technical and hospitalization wing of Madrid’s 12 de Octubre University Hospital, a contract worth 227 million euros with a timeline of 38 months.
The new structure will include 740 bright, spacious, and comfortable medical/surgical rooms for the hospitalization of adults and children. One novel feature is their flexibility: they can be outfitted for single or double occupancy depending on care needs. Some rooms are specially equipped to facilitate isolation, administer radiation treatment, or monitor patients, among other advantages.
The facility will also include 40 operating theaters, as well as units for major outpatient surgery, resuscitation, and intensive care—150 beds for adults, children, and newborns—among other critical facilities.
Sustainable and efficient construction
The building’s power will be provided through the photovoltaic conversion of 300,000 W (nominal power of the inverter). This requires the installation of 756 400-Wp photovoltaic panels on the roof, designed to dissipate heat in a faster, fully compact way. This installation will be connected to the general low-voltage table in order for the hospital to consume the energy generated.
Sacyr’s experience in the construction, management, and maintenance of hospitals guarantees the highest quality standards in efficient, accessible, and sustainable buildings. Our excellence in this field is evident in the more than 60 hospitals and health clinics built or renovated by Sacyr in seven countries, totaling 14,000 beds.
After Sacyr’s experience with hospital construction and concessions during the pandemic, it prepared a Manual for Comprehensive Hospital Management vis-à-vis epidemic diseases, which takes into account the development phases of this type of infrastructure, including planning, design, construction, operation, maintenance, and the use of materials. With this data, Sacyr proposes the best solutions for improving the level of care and service for hospital users, in short, providing the best innovation and development available.
