The Al Ain Hospital designed by Faust Consult is located in Ain, United Arab Emirates. Al Ain Hospital will be a prime example of how sustainability is able to promote one of a kind healthcare. Environmentally friendly and energy efficient design elements, such as solar panels that store energy for later use, sophisticated low air velocity conditioning systems, insulation which is three to four times thicker than average, allowing a reduction in cooling load, and lush indoor gardens fill the multi-storey atrium entrance hall, increasing the air quality amongst all spaces throughout the facility.
Al Ain Hospital envisions a health system where patients and staff interact in a healing environment that embraces safer building products, clean air, reduced toxins, safe working practices, energy and water efficiency, and a commitment to public health demonstrated through implementing sustainable innovations. The hospital sees a system that recognises the link between our choices and our health, and is continuously working to make that system a reality by creating a national movement in the UAE for environmental sustainability in health care.
