FOR THE COMMON GOOD
In 1931, C.F. Møller Architects won the architectural competition for the Aarhus Municipal Hospital in Denmark. The hospital is an early example of modern Scandinavian healthcare architecture, focused on functionality, generous daylighting and green surroundings.
In 2013, C.F. Møller Architects won the architectural competition for the new Køge University Hospital in Denmark. The design takes the principles of Scandinavian design to a new level, with easy wayfinding and landscape integration as part of the sustainability and climate adaptation strategy.

A HOSPITAL THAT HEALTHY PEOPLE ALSO LIKE TO VISIT! We consider a healing environment and effectiveness to be partners that walk hand in hand, rather than opposites. C.F. Møller works with hospital projects all over the world. Our team of healthcare architects, consultants and planners has expertise in all of the processes involved when major complex hospitals are built, ranging from general plans, user involvement and project design, to execution and final construction. • How do you ensure transparency in a hospital complex the size of a small town? • How big should a hospital be in 20 years’ time? • How do you involve 2,000 hospital employees in creating the optimum workplace? • How do you create the best work processes, so that the hospital can provide optimum treatment and make the most effective use of its resources?
C.F. Møller Healthcare undertakes projects within operations and capacity planning, healthcare planning, function planning, organisational planning, logistics, user-driven innovation and models for the planning and dimensioning of hospital projects. C.F. Møller Healthcare’s consultants are trained in planning, finance, logistics, project management and organisation. They all have extensive experience from the healthcare sector. Together with the architects’ knowledge of healing architecture and evidence-based design, C.F. Møller Healthcare creates the framework for healthcare construction that, in the best possible way, fulfils the patient’s requirements, supports the next-of-kin’s involvement and ensures optimised working conditions for all staff.
C.F. Møller’s team of healthcare planners and architects helps the Client to find solutions to these complex challenges.
We thus create solutions that are robust, both now and in the future, and we call this futureproof, holistic hospital planning.
The open, democratic and accessible design of the New Northern Zealand Hospital aims to blend the architecture seamlessly into the natural surroundings, creating a pleasant place for patients and visitors, an eminently functional workplace with sensory appeal, and a recreational oasis for everyone living in the local area. This includes an elevated green public footpath leading into and right through the hospital complex, without disturbing the wards. NEW NORTHERN ZEALAND HOSPITAL, DENMARK [2013, JOINT 1ST PRIZE â€“ COMPETITION PHASE 1]
THE GREAT INDOORS IN HOSPITAL STRUCTURES Our hospitals are decreasing in number, but increasing in size. The need to gather all specialised fields at the large trauma centres and emergency hospitals has naturally led to large, cohesive structures that are not necessarily very clear and transparent. Technological developments and equipmentrelated challenges have contributed to accelerating this development. Complicated and expensive investments in medicotechnical equipment lead to a natural centralisation of treatment, together with the need for integrated research and training facilities. This structural trend requires a strong focus on embracing this in a tangible and secure logistics process.
We describe the large hospitals as the cathedrals of the welfare society, emphasising a strong community spirit in spectacular yet welcoming settings. We create spaces in which everyday, well-known spatial hierarchies are drawn into the hospitals and transformed into effective, well-functioning logistics systems, with central squares and main thoroughfares.
We define this as putting the ”patient at the centre”, based on the patient’s perceptive experience of the meeting with the hospital. We combine this with a simple and secure wayfinding strategy. The major structure is thus broken down into simpler units. Yet there is also an architectural and societal obligation to use and release the large-scale potential and spatial value creation. Major public hospitals are a cornerstone of the welfare society and therefore play a role that extends beyond the functional challenges. Here, we are all equals, with the same thoughts, hopes and concerns.

Møller Architects has been highly positive from day one. Bjørn Sund, Project Director, Akershus University Hospital
THE SMALL WORLD WITHIN THE LARGER ONE The key factor determining whether it is easy or more difficult to find your way round an unfamiliar building, such as a hospital, is that the building’s layout is simple and uncomplicated. We have developed methods that are used in design and planning processes based on knowledge of how people navigate and form a ”mental map” of the premises in their brains. Social interaction with next-of-kin, family and friends requires an architectural framework that provides a setting for ordinary conversation, private and confidential interviews, active and passive interaction, family life and private life, and physical and psychological support, care and nursing.
NEW UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN AARHUS, DENMARK [2007-2020]
The small world within the larger one especially concerns personal space, and the privacy experienced by the individual patient, next-of-kin and staff. This privacy may be established physically behind walls, or as the opportunity to choose whether you wish to speak to someone, and to have control of the immediate physical environment, with room for your personal belongings. This privacy is important for the care of the individual, but also to establish the necessary space for close interaction and openness between the patient and his or her next-of-kin, between staff and patient, or between next-of-kin and staff.
The competition-winning design for the extension and refurbishment of the Vendsyssel Hospital seeks to enhance the overriding architectural identity of the hospital and to integrate buildings and landscapes in various ways, including a rooftop children’s oasis. VENDSYSSEL HOSPITAL – EXTENSION AND REFURBISHMENT, DENMARK [2014-2019]
EVIDENCE & KNOWLEDGE BASED DESIGN Our starting point is that sustainable design objectives should lead to building-integrated humanity, rather than add-on solutions – it is most important that we design a hospital that is focused on the users and patients, rather than a showcase of sustainable technologies. This results in a design strategy in which the elements that create the most value are prioritised via an integrated design process (IED). We define sustainable building in terms of a holistic definition of sustainability. This includes architectural and technical quality, and functionality and flexibility, as key parameters, on an equal footing with environmental, social and financial sustainability. In our experience, this early, integrated and holistic approach provides simple, buildable, energy-efficient and sustainable buildings.
a design driver, taking into account that daylight is a complex issue that depends on many different parameters, which have proved to be crucial in relation to a variety of physical and psychological issues
Today, a rapidly increasing number of research reports and scientific studies provide evidence for the beneficial health aspects of good architecture and attractive environments. Specifically, the importance of daylight for man’s physical and psychological wellbeing, motivation and performance points to light as one of the most important factors in building design.
IIn the design and layout of the physical environment, not only the patient is in focus, but the hospital as a whole. Since it is the staff’s responsibility to ensure that the patient recovers in the best way, their well-being and workplace environment is also a key parameter. Temperature conditions and air quality in the building may have a major impact on the wellbeing of staff and patients as well as visitors. Optimum indoor climate conditions can significantly increase performance and minimize disease, resulting in more mental surplus and greater efficiency for daily users and employees.
C.F. Møller’s designs always focus on ensuring that our hospital buildings have a sensory quality that is supported by distinctive materials and architecturalartistic integration. We use qualitative daylight as

All of these issues must be given priority, together with the other definitions of sustainability. Empirical knowledge and “Best Practice”, combined with Evidence Based Design, are therefore the basis for our design and project processes regarding hospitals and other healthcare-related projects. We call this working method Knowledge and Evidence-Based Design. There must be continuity between interiors, adjacent outdoor areas and the wider landscape. The spatial hierarchy and differentiation are supported by the colour schemes, illumination and materials selected. This makes our hospitals easy to find your way around and use, as well as giving an identity to the individual functions and departments. These aspects
AKERSHUS UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, NORWAY [2000-2014]
thus tone down the hospital’s technical and rational treatment-related expression. This creates a sense of security and well-being for patients and next-of-kin, and an optimum working environment for the staff. These carefully designed, aesthetically caring and environmentally certified surroundings are conducive to both the patients’ healing process and the staff’s working capacity, and therefore play a key role in the hospitals’ economic efficiency. Knowledge & Evidence-Based Design is used to qualify and weight these quality measures in architecture, design and landscape on an equal footing with other technical and economic parameters, via rational and scientific arguments.
KØGE HOSPITAL, DENMARK [1981-1988]
L ANDSCAPE AND HOSPITALS Being able to see and use green settings, with trees and vegetation, has a positive impact on people’s physical and mental well-being, in conjunction with hospitals, homes and workplaces. This can be documented on an evidence basis and is apparent from a number of surveys to measure the impact of visual contact with nature elements, and from interviews with various types of users of gardens in conjunction with hospitals. These surveys point to landscapes and gardens as a significant free space for all users of hospitals, whether they be patients, staff or next-of-kin, which can help to reduce stress and play a key role for both social relations and individual privacy.
NEW UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL IN AARHUS, DENMARK [2007-2020]
C.F. Møller works on an integrated basis with urban design, landscape and building design in the planning of major hospital projects, and several of the hospitals for which we have undertaken both landscaping and construction have been included in the aforementioned individual surveys and randomised surveys of green areas and access to gardens and their location, accessibility, attraction and activities. We thereafter also use the results of these surveys ourselves, both generally and specifically when landscapes are designed.
The design of the extension of the Vendsyssel Hospital in Hjørring features sterling materials, in combination with a strong emphasis on the landscape, including a series of outdoor spaces with integrated planting, paving and storm water handling, taking advantage of every opportunity to create healing architecture. VENDSYSSEL HOSPITAL – EXTENSION AND REFURBISHMENT, DENMARK [2014-2019]
The building fully meets our needs and requirements of a hospice. It accommodates both life and death, it reflects the light in the sea and the sky in the garden pool, and it provides a close view of nature. Clouds and stars can be observed through the skylights. Our cooperation with C.F. MĂ¸ller has been stimulating and inspirational. Throughout the process, our ideas and wishes found a ready response. The practice has acted in a creative and visionary manner, and via this valuable cooperation, we have given life to a building which will be of great importance to our terminally-ill fellow human beings.

GREAT ARCHITECTURE AS LIFE DRAWS TO AN END We acknowledge how architecture strongly influences our well-being – in our homes, at our workplaces and in public spaces. When we are at a critical stage of our lives, our surroundings will have an even greater impact on us, influencing and shaping our lives.
In this perspective, creating the framework and space for lives that are drawing to an end is one of the most life-affirming areas that an architect can work with. Designing a hospice requires a sense of awe and focus on every detail, material and lighting aspect.
enriching potential, with a distinct, but also relaxed, architectural attitude from which any institutional traits have been stripped away, so as to get to the core of pleasant, high-quality spaces and strong symbiosis between the exterior and interior.
Hospice Djursland is located on the outskirts of the town of Rønde with a unique view of Følle Bund and Aarhus Bay. The hospice architecture’s natural starting point is to emphasise and strengthen this
The essence is a secure setting, and familiar, warm materials, but also an insistence on creating surprising and inspiring surroundings that highlight the cycle of the day and the shifting light.
Hospice Djursland is first and foremost a building within a landscape. No matter where you go in the building â€“ the reception area, the garden of the senses, the orangery, the atriums, the staff room, the lounge, the reflection room or the patient rooms â€“ the beautiful landscape is always present. HOSPICE DJURSLAND, DENMARK [2006-2007 AND 2010-2011]
CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE Every patient group requires a hospital’s design to command special architectural attention. This also includes children and young people, who need their everyday lives and outlook to be reflected in the design of spaces and settings For children and young people under the age of 18, a stay in hospital must be a reassuring experience. They need to meet a familiar environment with references to their own everyday lives.
Children and young people can be very different. Young people require special attention, so that they are not swept into a child-focused world that may seem undignified and intimidating.
Children and young people’s own rooms at home, or their school or leisure facilities, can serve as references to their homes and everyday lives when they come to the hospital. It is also vital to create an inspiring and enriching framework for an interruption to their normal lives that might otherwise be unsettling.
C.F. Møller has therefore developed a conceptual platform for this part of the hospital, whereby varying elements of recognisable themes are added to universal qualities, creating references and a sense of identity for the individual age groups. Yet the very most important aspect of the children and young people’s department is to create room for the family to be present, and to use this in concrete interaction with nursing care and admission to hospital.
>> Confidence and trust are essential to any hospital stay and especially essential when children are the patients. Details such as materials, colours, art or the design of child-scaled elements such as play areas, window openings and furnishings, are a key element in creating surroundings adapted to the needs of specific age groups.

DESIGNING LABORATORIES – A HOLISTIC APPROACH Working with laboratories is a complex working process, consisting of a number of stages that must be handled in cooperation with clients, users and consultants. Functional, architectural, technical and environmental considerations are always adjusted on a holistic basis, in order to be in accordance with the client’s wishes and demands in the best possible way, within the given economic framework. C.F. Møller has worked for more than 50 years with the construction and fitting-out of laboratories, within the educational, research and healthcare sectors. We possess extensive experience in the planning of laboratory functions, and in this context can act as a lead consultant to the client and as a coordinator and organiser in all phases, from planning to construction – both in connection with specific laboratory tasks, and when laboratories form part of a larger project. Every design is project-specific, but based on tried and tested configurations of facility layouts ranging from “lab-centric” to “office-centric” planning,
and designed for current users while bearing in mind that future uses and users may have different requirements. Planning Laboratories require specific working environments tailored to specific research. At the same time, a degree of flexibility is required, to allow the space to adapt to future alterations as technologies and working patterns evolve and change. We always strive to strike a balance between fulfilling specific requirements and ensuring flexibility. Space Our laboratories are generally light, transparent and open, so as to support interaction and networking. Where possible, they are designed as larger spaces in order to increase flexibility when teams and research programmes expand, contract, change or move.

HEALTHCARE ARCHITECTURE – PSYCHIATRY There is increasing general awareness and acceptance of psychiatric conditions in society and the range of diagnoses is wider and more nuanced than just 10 to 15 years ago. This creates new requirements of future psychiatric care, and changes how we design and organise the physical framework for psychiatric treatment. The planning and project design of psychiatric centres differs from other healthcare tasks in that users have different needs – that must be met within the structural framework – than usually apply to hospital construction for somatic care. This often concerns an extended process for each patient, and psychiatric conditions take many expressions that vary between life-threatening illness, long-term, severe psychiatric disorders, short-term crises, and psychiatric symptoms that are treated in outpatient clinics. Often, dependency disorders and substance abuse are also involved. C.F. Møller has extensive experience from the construction of centres for psychiatric care, and analyses of psychiatric patients’ courses of treatment are part of our working method. Via active dialogue with users in the various planning stages, the analysis is implemented as concrete solutions, concrete design proposals and spatial programmes. In the development of general plans, building structures and psychiatric buildings, via concrete
projects and international competitions we have focused on creating flexible structural concepts that are based on meeting the patient in a way that matches the patient’s needs, abilities and willingness to be part of an everyday routine. The physical setting is very important for patients who are admitted to hospital. Creating a homely atmosphere, good daylight conditions, and access to nature and the outdoors, and to activities, are key aspects of the everyday requirements. The objective is to create a professional treatment environment that inspires confidence, giving patients the calm and attentive care they require, while also creating a strong professional environment and good working conditions for the staff. The overall concept is based on creating a natural, gradual transition between the private, social and public spaces, so that as the patient develops, the patient and staff can decide on the degree of interaction with the outside world, thereby creating security and an affinity with the centre and other residents and staff around the patient.
The intention for the new inpatient accommodation and support facilities at Springfield University Hospital, Mental Health department in South London is to create a homely environment rather than an institution, by providing a warm atmosphere combined with robust materials, and a varied range of facilities. Patients are free to choose their own level of privacy, from sheltered indoor environments with maximum tranquillity to more lively social and communal areas. SPRINGFIELD UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, MENTAL HEALTH, UK [2012-]
The design of the Sct. Hans Hospital aims to create a balanced synthesis between the settingâ€™s healing and safety aspects, in order to create a beautiful, well-functioning and welcoming environment that can meet the varying needs of the individual patients and also provide good working conditions for the staff. Rather than being enclosed by a wall, the complex itself becomes the security perimeter by enclosing a large inner green landscape, while maintaining the spectacular views over the fjord. SCT. HANS HOSPITAL, DENMARK [2013, JOINT 1ST PRIZE â€“ COMPETITION PHASE 1]
WAYFINDING/NAVIGATION STRATEGY Today, hospitals are vast healthcare systems with many areas of specialisation, with outpatient centres, research units, waiting areas, wards, patient hotels, etc. One of the basic preconditions for modern buildings is their mutability. In particular, modern healthcare buildings are being expanded and changed, and departments are changing name, function and location. Hospitals’ need for a complete navigation strategy is therefore greater than ever before. A key aspect is the ability to read and understand one’s surroundings. A well-functioning building and infrastructure to promote easy navigation in buildings and at the overall site is a fundamental prerequisite for a hospital to function optimally. Users of a hospital, who include an ever-increasing number of outpatients, will often arrive with no prior knowledge of the location. Some of them may perhaps only come to the hospital once, so that new users’ needs and requirements must be taken particularly seriously. The special circumstances of a hospital visit may lead to higher stress levels that not only diminish users’ ability to understand and process information, but also inhibit the body’s self-curing abilities. In every possible way, users must be ensured a sense of being in control, as a key factor in reducing stress, anxiety and fear.
At C.F. Møller we have many years’ experience from working with wayfinding as an integrated aspect of the architectural process, from the initial outline to the subsequent project design and execution. Today, this area is also an independent consulting service whereby, in dialogue with the client, users and other consultants, we develop an overall navigation strategy to clarify and maintain the preconditions. We also develop solution principles for the strategy’s main and supporting elements, which are tested and qualified in the most frequently occurring flows. The final strategy will thus constitute the basis for the design and use of signs, and ensure the incorporation and coordination of all architectural and technical elements that contribute to navigation.
The hub of the extension of the Vestfold Hospital in Norway is a new central atrium which links all the storeys, revealing the dynamics of the hospital and providing an easy overview of and access to all floors, and to the shared public functions such as a canteen, cafĂŠ, library, meeting rooms, auditorium and shops. VESTFOLD HOSPITAL, 6TH PHASE, NORWAY [2002-2005]
The New University Hospital in Aarhus, Denmark, will be organised like a town, with a hierarchy of neighbourhoods, streets and squares providing the basis for a diverse, dynamic and green urban area, as well as intuitive wayfinding by the users.

STREAMLINED OPERATION AND FUTURE-PROOFING Hospital services have considerable operating costs and the costs of constructing a new hospital typically correspond to only 2-3 years’ operating costs. A strong focus on streamlined operations, rationalised processes and effective goods and staff logistics are therefore vital to ensuring economic sustainability. These factors also make high demands of hospital buildings’ ability to absorb unforeseen changes over time. Large and complex hospital projects are also characterised by how it takes many years from deciding to build and programme the hospital until construction commences. The challenge lies in how planning and project design can take account of the ongoing changes in treatment methods and morbidity rates the construction process, in order to minimise the risk that some elements of the structure prove to be inappropriately designed, once it is taken into use. C.F. Møller has developed design strategies for future proofing and operational optimisation that via elasticity, flexibility and standardisation can tackle these challenges that are an inherent element of the
construction and operation of hospitals. The use of standardised building sections, standardised spaces and construction principles all allow for functional adjustments within the spaces already allocated, with a minimum of adjustments and consumption of resources. The arrangement and fitting-out of clinical standard rooms and special rooms is based on a number of technically structured standard rooms, so that the clinical functions are incorporated into area standards that are relevant for the buildings. This ensures cost and operational efficiency due to the rooms’ uniformity during the construction process and ongoing maintenance, as well as enhanced patient and staff security via standardised workflows and fitting-out of the rooms.
>> The functional layout and space planning of new hospitals are developed and tested in the Designlab, a 1:1 mock-up facility where designers and hospital staff can check and refine the operations of future facilities in a co-creational process. Before specific room types, bed wards for example, are signed off in the design process, different scenarios of use will have been thoroughly studied, to ensure the quality, versatility and future adaptability of the workplace environment.
INNOVATIVE TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS (INNOVATION) C.F. MĂ¸ller works closely with engineers and specialists on the development of innovative technical structural solutions for installations, transport systems, structures and fire prevention that support our design strategy to create proximity and cohesion in clinics and architecture. The technical structural solutions, especially goods logistics and technical installations, are based on extensive decentralisation in order to create proximity to clinics, future-proof the building facility and integrate state-of-the-art technology, so as to minimise the area devoted to depots, stores, technical installations, corridors and exterior walls. This also reduces the energy lost to distribution and transport facilities, releases â€?warm handsâ€? to care for patients, rationalises a number of work processes and increases patient security. Developing the logistics solutions is intended to ensure effective procedures, reduce area use and support sustainable improvements in clinical activities. The right items must be available at the
right time when they are to be used, so that clinical staff spend as little time as possible on handling and ordering consumables. Decentralising all stores and depot capacity, and replacing a hierarchy of stores and depots with a number of parallel decentralised stores, which function as connected vessels, ensures coordinated and effective stock management, reducing the space required for stores and stock. AGV (Automatic Guided Vehicles) and pneumatic dispatch for rapid distribution of samples between departments and laboratories can together provide a well-developed, effective and tried and tested logistics backbone for our major hospitals.
The Akershus University Hospital features advanced logistics technology, such as Automatic Guided Vehicles, pneumatic dispatch and robotics, to ensure that staff can primarily spend their time close to the patients, and to reduce the risk of errors in diagnostics or medication.

The environmental screening of the new Vendsyssel Hospital reveals the potential to achieve a DGNB Silver rating, as well as compliance with the Danish Low-Energy class 2020 standard.
SUSTAINABILITY C.F. Møller Architects considers sustainability to be a natural parameter in all phases of a building project – from the preliminary outline stage to the finished building. The Nordic countries have a strong tradition for social responsibility, and for architecture that is democratic and accessible to all. For over 50 years we have helped to construct and maintain the welfare society, including the healthcare sector, from small, intimate facilities to large new super-hospitals such as those currently being created as part of Denmark’s new healthcare reform. Our design approach to healthcare-sector projects includes environmental concerns, resourceawareness, healthy project finances, flexibility, efficiency, social responsibility, user inclusion, accessibility and good craftsmanship as essential elements – a holistic view that is fundamental to every aspect, from master plans to the design of individual building components.
A sustainable building will have the following key dimensions and values: • Architectural and technical viability – functionality, flexibility, quality and durability over time. Environmental sustainability – natural resources and environmental perspectives. • Social sustainability – social, human and organisational. • Economic sustainability – economic aspects, personal finances and the overall economy. • Energy concept – reduction, optimisation and potential on-site production.
Hospitals are prone to high levels of energy and resource consumption, due to technical equipment and non-stop operations. This means that there is potential to use renewable energy sources, regenerative technologies and recycling; but also that efficiency, long-term adaptability, and especially social sustainability, are some of the main focus points in our healthcare projects because they represent even greater potential for significant results.
VENDSYSSEL HOSPITAL, DENMARK [2014-2019]
C.F. Møller Architects undertakes compulsory screening of the sustainability of all new projects as an integral element of the practice’s work to motivate each client to incorporate sustainable components in construction. The screening is a comprehensive environmental mapping of the project in question, based on the client’s ambitions and policies and the architectural practice’s own environmental expertise. Our new generation of projects includes eco-friendly buildings certified under international standards such as Passive House, LEED, BREEAM and DGNB. We have in-house DGNB Assessors, and work on an integrated platform whereby environmental management is part of our quality management system, including LCA (Life-Cycle Assessments) and LCC (Life-Cycle Costs).
Hot Hotwater water
C.F. Møller Architects was the first major architectural practice in Denmark to introduce an environmental management system, and was certified in 2009 under the international ISO 14001 standard. Our integrated design approach which seamlessly blends urban design, landscape, building design and building component design, as well as our continuous collaboration with globally leading specialists, is the unique platform we use to develop innovative and holistic architecture that takes account of a wide range of energy-saving design solutions, materials knowledge, indoor climate and technology, together with adaptation to climate change, social programmes, and economically feasible design.

A ground-heat exchange system, combined with thermal storage capacity in the bedrock for surplus heat from technical equipment, generates about 85 % of the energy used for heating, and covers over 40 % of the total energy consumption at the new Akershus University Hospital, reducing CO2 emissions by over 50 % compared to the previous hospital’s performance. AKERSHUS UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, NORWAY [2000-2014]
D ESIGN FOR HEALTH The design of components for the healthcare sector must support effective operation and combine the staff’s need for an effective framework for their professional activities with the patients’ need for pleasant and welcoming rooms. The individual product or apparatus is included as one of many elements that all have a necessary function and must be taken into account when the hospital’s clinical areas in particular are designed. As the basis for our design process, C.F. Møller Design has unique access to information, experience and insight via colleagues, users and professional players. Due to our dedication in this area, we are quickly aware of changed conditions, needs and opportunities and can apply this knowledge to the design of products and equipment that represent real innovation, with the users at the centre.
CAVERE Red Dot Design Award, 2010 iF product design award, 2011 Designpreis Deutschland, Nominee, 2011 GH3 CEILING-MOUNTED HOIST SYSTEM Red Dot Design Award, Honourable Mention, 2009
In this way, we transfer experience and best practice from our many construction projects to improved products that create added value for patients and staff, and bottom-line value for the companies we work with. We also contribute the results and knowledge we achieve from our product development work. In completely elementary terms, we base our work on Scandinavian design traditions and seek to achieve a clear and simple design idiom with focus on function, users and finance. We always take a curious and humble approach to the task, concentrating on the essence of useful, durable and original design that respects and complements the architecture.
The GH3 ceiling-mounted hoist system is comfortable and practical for staff as well as patients, intuitive to operate and easy to install in new buildings, as well as existing structures, and blends smoothly with the architectural surroundings by avoiding an overly technical expression.

BIM IN HOSPITALS C.F. Møller has helped to define how the sector uses BIM as a tool. Back in 2004, we used BIM to create the new Akershus University Hospital in Oslo, Norway, and via our involvement in the national reorganisation of the health sector we have paved the way for BIM project design in Denmark. BIM stands for Building Information Modelling. BIM is used to create digital models of the physical and functional characteristics of a building. It is also a working method, and a way of managing information throughout a building’s life cycle. In the Scandinavian market, for the last 12 years C.F. Møller has played a central role in the development and testing of new project design technologies and communication methods, including via the Danish development project called ”The Digital Building”. Today, the experience gained is the pragmatic foundation for C.F. Møller’s digital working platform. Processes, methods and software are in constant development. Best practice and procedures are updated continuously and handled within the framework of ISO 9001.
Today, 3D project design is used in all our projects. If there is a need and requirement, we can offer project design using digital methods that support the use of Open BIM and IFC*. We can prepare BIM strategies that focus on value creation and the support of processes that are central to or critical for our customers. C.F. Møller’s core competences include organisation development and process support in the execution of cross-disciplinary process-intensive tasks, such as the handling of all processes related to the planning, project design and acquisition of technical/ medico-technical equipment in conjunction with the construction of new hospitals.
* IFC is an industry-wide open and neutral data format providing the “guidelines” or “rules” to determine what information is exchanged. Although it may include geometry, it is not limited to this; it presents tangible building components such as walls and doors and also enables the linking of alphanumeric information (properties, quantities, classification, etc.)
C.F. MØLLER’S DIGITAL WORKING PLATFORM We work with the following software: • Project design: Revit • Collision control: Navisworks, Solibri • Q uantity takeoff: Revit, Quantity Takeoff and other costing programs • Planning: dRofus from Nosyko
The 400,000 mÂ˛ New University Hospital in Aarhus is our largest BIM project to date, combining a large number of linked databases interlinked in real-time across all consultants. A room database with bidirectional links into our 3D designing software ensures that fixtures, furniture, technical installations and medico-technical appliances, etc. are continuously updated and in sync. Quantities and specifications are extracted from the 3D models and the room databases, and used for pricing. All models are continuously checked for collisions during the project phase, and models are delivered to the contractors for their further detailing. 51
Køge University Hospital (USK) is an expansion of the existing Køge Hospital, which will be enlarged threefold to a total surface area of 177,000 m² The project is based on the existing hospital’s manageable structure that is built around a simple, general traffic system and green, informal gardens and waiting areas. Green surroundings, ample daylight, courtyard gardens, green roofs and views are key elements of the concept of health-promoting architecture. This maintains the original landscape, the characteristic, circular forest that surrounds the hospital, as well as lakes, rivers and vegetation. The new wards all have views of either the landscape to the west or Køge Bay. KØGE UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL, DENMARK [2015-2021]

The cylindrical emergency and infectious diseases unit at SkĂĽne University Hospital is Swedenâ€™s largest and most modern infectious-diseases facility, designed to minimise the risk of spreading diseases. Each floor can be closed off into smaller units in the event of an epidemic, and patients enter the isolation rooms through special airlocks. Despite the need for isolation, the building is flooded with natural daylight. Large, glazed areas from floor to ceiling in the generously dimensioned patient rooms give the isolated patients a sense of still being part of the life of the city. Staff safety and the working environment were also given top priority in the design, including separate supply routes and short distances.

SØLUND VILLAGE [1974-1977]
In 1931, C.F. MĂ¸ller won first prize in an architectural competition for an extension to Aarhus Municipal Hospital. The first new buildings were completed in 1935, and since the implementation of the initial plan the hospital has expanded continuously, while respecting the original concept. The complex is in red brick and tiles throughout, and the windows, doors, stairs and balconies are in white-painted metal. The hospital thus presents a consistent and homogeneous appearance, like that of Aarhus University on the opposite side of NĂ¸rrebrogade. AARHUS MUNICIPAL HOSPITAL [1931-]
