BDP has been named on a strong shortlist for a 1.4bn Kroner (£160million) children’s hospital in Denmark.

The AJ100 big hitter is working with local outfit Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Art In Site as one of six teams vying for the scheme.

A 58,000m2 wing at the Rigshospitalet in Copenhagen, designed to be a centre for excellence for treatment of children, will be designed by the winners.

BDP, working with Irish firm O’Connell Mahon Architects, last year submitted plans for the €650 million (£585 million) New Children’s Hospital in Dublin.

The full shortlist for the Copenhagen scheme is:

  • 3XN A/S as lead consultants with Arkitema Architects, Aletica & Kristine Jensens Tegnestue as sub-consultants
  • Building Design Partnership, as lead consultants with Gottlieb Paludan Architects and Art In Site as sub-consultants
  • Henning Larsen Architects A/S as lead consultants with COBE, Søren Jensen Rådgivende Ingeniørfirma, Royal Haskoning DHV and Gemeinschaft A/S as sub-consultants
  • Consortium Børneriget Design Group consisting of PLH Arkitekter, Nickl & Partner, Amstein + Walthert and ISC Rådgivende Ingeniører A/S with Balslev Rådgivende Ingeniører, Marianne Levinsen Landskab ApS and Steensen Varming ApS as sub-consultants
  • Consortium Schmidt Hammer Lassen Architects K/S and MOE A/S with Tredje Natur, Creo Arkitekter, Keingart and Smith Innovation as sub-consultants
  • Aarhus arkitekterne A/S as lead consultants with Bjarke Ingels Group, Sweco Danmark A/S, Schønherr, Dr David Whitebread, Cambridge Univeristy and Forrec as sub-consultants

The six teams will hand in proposals before the end of this year, with up to three winners announced in February 2017. A winner will be announced next August.
