Inselspital Bern, High-rise bed block, Polyclinic Pneumology and Bronchoscopy

The planning for the Bronchoscopy Centre began with a feasibility study. In particular, the interfaces with parallel projects had to be defined. The project encompasses a new bronchoscopy centre and examination and office facilities of the polyclinic.

It was implemented in several stages, each of which required close coordination with the adjoining facilities. Ongoing operations adjacent to, below, and above the construction area needed to be affected as little as possible. In the bronchoscopy centre, spatial coordination of building services in very tight spaces and their coordination with the optimized structural measures was an enormous challenge. The bronchoscopy room was planned and built with a wall system on the «room in room» principle. Medical technology and large monitors were optimally integrated.
