The King’s Mill Hospital designed by Swanke Hayden Connell Architects is located in Mansfield, United Kingdom. The Diagnostic and Treatment Centre became a defining element in site arrangement, the massing and the configuration of the emerging building design. The brief for the DTC asked that we create a flexible , adaptable concept which would accommodate a vast amount of similar sized clinical units or rooms within a compacted area or footprint.
King’s Mill Hospital is already being talked about as one of the most sustainable healthcare buildings in the UK. The BREAM ‘Excellent’ sustainability rating is based on numerous integrated design features, including the largest geothermal lake loop scheme in Europe and a tri-generation energy plant.
