SPINN Arkitekter and Architectopia have completed the schematic design phase for our new healthcare facility in Bjørkelangen. Aurskog-Høland Helsehus is a new municipal healthcare facility that includes a wide range of services over 3 floors. Services include emergency room and drop-in doctors office with 4 short-stay hospital beds in the first floor. The second floor contains physical therapy, regional dentist services, maternity- and infant services. The third floor is a flexible office floor designed to cater to a wide spectrum of services ranging from mental health, preventative information, and a base for home nursing care.
Adjacent to the brick clad healthcare facility are 15 new serviced apartments for the elderly clad in untreated fir. Both buildings have been designed with cross-laminated-timber (massivtre) construction and strict environmental specifications for materials and energy use. Tender documents for construction have been published on DOFFIN and TED with the goal of signing a contract with the general contractor before summer and construction start in the fall.
