Evidence-based design and the Healing Environment concept are fixed pillars for all our designs for the healthcare sector. A healing environment is one that reduces stress and anxiety and promotes patient well-being. While there is no shortage of opinions about healing environments, we are fortunate to have real, in-house expertise based on extensive scientific research and experience.
Nowadays, sustainable building is a matter of course. In our opinion, however, sustainability in the Netherlands is too often considered in terms of energy consumption, CO2 and nitrogen. Our approach is more critical and focused on the long-term. We distinguish three phases:
Our Building Information Model (BIM) allows us to work out designs and coordinate projects together with clients and partners. While a sketch or a clear floor plan remain essential, BIM makes the design transparent for all parties involved via tools such as live video or VR.
BIM is a common denominator in every project, from tender to delivery. It provides an indispensable digital “dossier”, which facilitates effective collaboration and greatly reduces the risk of misunderstandings. Our cloud-based platform, which we are constantly developing, is accessible to everyone involved in the project or anyone who needs direct information about it. Reference solutions and 3D design standards (Basic ILS, ILS Design & Engineering) are an integral part of our BIM.
We work with BIM360, Autodesk Revit, Revit Server, Dynamo, Solibri and Enscape. In the coming years, we expect all kinds of new possibilities thanks to the emergence of smart algorithms.
Wiegerinck’s designs are regularly evaluated by expert juries. Although winning prizes is not our goal, we are always happy to receive recognition for our work.
