Hassell reveals Bahrain health centre

  • Comment

The Cardiff studio of Australian giant Hassell has received the green light for a health scheme in Bahrain

Hassell secured design approval for a new Oncology Centre at King Hamad University Hospital in the Middle Eastern kingdom.

The practice is working with Mazen Alumran Consulting Engineers, Aecom, Baker Willis Smith and MJ Medical on the scheme for the Bahrain Defence Force.

The Oncology Centre will combine research functions with in-patient, out-patient, diagnostic and treatment facilities.

It aims to bring top quality cancer care and research facilities to Bahrain and facilitate internationally co-ordinated clinical trials.

Hassell designed the 140,000m2 Fiona Stanley Hospital in Western Australia, as well as the 50,000m2 Eco Sciences Precinct research facilities in Brisbane.

Colin Hockley, managing principal for Hassell in the UK, said: ‘Bahrain is working to lead the region in developing first-class healthcare and specialised cancer-care.

‘Hassell is looking forward to cooperating with the Bahrain Defence Force to achieve this goal through our research-based approach to healthcare design.’

The practice, which has 12 studios across Australia and Asia, opened offices in London and Cardiff in 2011.
