Qatar Military Hospital

Served as design lead on the project, responsible for master planning, site planning, and architectural design.

The 100,000-SM proposed hospital complex would serve as an incentive for the enlistment of Qatari citizens into the military, and would provide secure medical treatment in the event of Nuclear/Biological/Chemical (NBC) mass casualty events.  The QMH would be composed of:  300 private inpatient beds (expandable to 600 in an emergency), 200 NBC protected patient beds, an Accident + Emergency (A+E) Trauma Centre of Excellence, an Operating Theatre Suite, a Neuroscience Center, O&G + Maternal Care Cent, Neonatology, Gastroenterology + Endoscope Centre, day surgery, and ambulatory outpatient services and clinics.
The architectural design concept for the Qatar Military Hospital (QMH) is founded on an Integrated Design approach dedicated to the seamless integration of sustainable systems and architectural features.  By focusing on technological and environmental issues, an intelligent design solution has been arrived at that serves the mission of the healthcare facility. The architectural language draws from design strategies that integrate a common sense approach for a campus-like master plan.  A single design aesthetic recognizably associated with the armed forces and leading edge healthcare technology is the common thread that weaves throughout the QMH campus fabric, giving it an iconic identity.
