HOCHTIEF Solutions constructed a new clinic building with a capacity of around 740 beds on the grounds of University Medical Center Eppendorf in Hamburg, which is considered one of the most modern in Europe. Among the facilities located in the new building are the general and trauma surgery departments. A total of 18 high-tech operating rooms are also housed in the pavilionlike patient buildings, whose numerous inner courtyards reflect the historical architectural style of older buildings on the grounds. The construction work, which was performed without interrupting the operation of the hospital, required detailed construction logistics. HOCHTIEF handed over the new clinic in December 2008, right on schedule, after a three year construction period.
