Meeting with a Finnish consortium, IHDA

 |  Category: SPCleantech News

On December 1, 2022, SPCleantech met at the Embassy of Finland in Warsaw with the Finnish consortium of 7 leading companies specializing in the construction and renovation of hospitals, the Integrated Hospital Design Alliance (IHDA). During the meeting, representatives of the consortium presented plans related to starting operations in Poland and stated that SPCleantech could be a great Polish partner.

Expert companies in Finnish hospital design and construction have jointly launched the Integrated Hospital Design Alliance (IHDA) project, which promotes the export of technically and functionally high-quality Finnish hospital design expertise to Europe.

Internationally pioneering Finnish hospital design expertise is exported to Europe in an alliance that brings together healthcare experts and service designers, architects and main designers, HVAC designers, structural designers, and project management experts.

The Integrated Hospital Design Alliance (IHDA) project has involved the leading hospital design companies Granlund, AINS Group, Nordic Healthcare Group, AW2 architects and Integrated Healthcare Design. As new companies, Vison and K2S architects joined the project in August 2022. All companies have experience of significant hospital projects in Finland in the 2000s.

The aim of the IHDA project is to create awareness and interest in the technical and functional expertise of Finnish hospital design, which has been developed to an ultimate level during the Finnish hospital reform in 2010’s. The aim is also to offer Finnish expertise for the benefit of hospital construction and healthcare reform in Europe.

The complementary expertise of the alliance companies supports the comprehensive planning and construction of smart, customer-oriented, and functionally efficient hospitals from the first steps of the project to the commissioning and maintenance of the hospital facilities.
