A new $305 million-dollar Altru hospital in Grand Forks, N.D., slated for completion in 2022, was designed with input from the staff and community, according to an article on the Minneapolis St. Paul Business Journal website.
The project has included an education and design workshop process.
The design/construction team began by communicating how the processes were going to be used. The team hosted several workshops focused on designing healthcare spaces that adapted to the way Altru staff and end users were planning to deliver care, and creating as much future flexibility as possible.
The team created room mock-ups to allow for a better understanding of what the hospital needed and how it would function. These full-size models were created in a warehouse space, allowing team to adjust the design.See the latest posts on our homepage
