SPINN Arkitekter and Architectopia delivered sketch design drawings for a new multi-purpose healthcare facility in Bjørkelangen in July 2015. The project has now been widely presented to the politicians and city staff in Aurskog-Høland Municipality with positive responses all around.
The new "Helsehuset" in Bjørkelangen represents a new genre of healthcare facilities in Norway. Regional centers have been given increased responsibility to combine and streamline existing services into multiple-practice facilities that give the users a broader selection of services locally. Aurskog-Høland Kommune have shown their forward-thinking in the planning of the project, something which we hope will also be visible in the final product.
SPINN and Architectopia have commenced work on schematic design and will be producing tender documents for a fixed-price contract tender in early 2016. The new facility is scheduled to open in 2017.
