28.4.2016 | Today, four children turned the first sods for the New University Hospital in Odense. With new facilities covering 250,000 m², the future super hospital for the Southern Denmark Region will be one of the largest construction projects of its kind in the history of Denmark.

 

Since 2008, C.F. Møller and Niras have been the client adviser for the New Odense University Hospital. On Monday, 25 January, the Regional Council approved appropriations for two sub-projects, which means that the construction of the New OUH officially commenced when the first sod was turned on 28 April.

The super hospital will be Denmark's largest newly constructed hospital, and the two sub-projects will contribute to preparing for the light rail's passage through the new university hospital, and to the site's development. After this, the actual construction will commence.

200 guests
Flanked by the Chair of the Regional Council, Stephanie Lose (V), and the Danish Minister for Health Sophie Løhde (V), today Silje, Theodor, Maja and Alma turned the first sods for the New University Hospital in Odense. Silje and Theodor, aged 3 and 6, are patients at the H.C. Andersen Children's Hospital at OUH. The last two children are patients at the Children and Adolescent Psychiatric Centre in Odense.

The first sods were turned at what will be the southern approach to the New OUH – on the periphery of the enormous construction site. Minister for Health Sophie Løhde, together with the Chair of the Regional Council, was among the speakers at the groundbreaking ceremony, which was attended by more than 200 guests.

"We've gained a unique opportunity to take a completely new approach to building a hospital. We must have a strong university hospital in our region, where we can research and develop new and better treatment methods. This is absolutely necessary if we are to continue to take the lead in the future, in terms of the treatment we offer our patients. Modern new facilities and skilled colleagues will help to make our region more exciting for the best talent in the future – which in the final analysis will benefit our patients," said Stephanie Lose, Chair of the Regional Council, in her speech at the groundbreaking ceremony.

Construction together with the University of Southern Denmark
The new OUH will be the first and only hospital in Denmark to be built together with a university, i.e. the University of Southern Denmark. The hospital and university will be connected via a new Faculty of Health Sciences. The overall project also comprises a new research park and a portal area that includes halls of residence, accommodation for researchers, and service and conference facilities.

As client adviser, C.F. Møller has among other things drawn up programmes for conceptual solutions, as well as a competition programme for the New OUH with site calculations, clinical main structure and logistics.

During the process for the New OUH, C.F. Møller has assisted the Southern Denmark Region with organising and managing the entire planning and construction process. C.F. Møller will also closely follow the entire process up to cutting the inauguration ribbon. The construction of the New OUH is planned for completion in 2022. Medic OUH I/S is the consortium of advisers which is handling the turnkey advisory services for the New OUH.

For the last many years, C.F. Møller has been behind a large number of the largest and most important hospital construction projects in the Nordic region. These include the largest hospital project in the history of Denmark: the New University Hospital in Skejby, well as Akershus University Hospital near Oslo in Norway.
