We’re overseeing the delivery of the new Princess Grace Hospital in Monaco – a major expansion and modernisation project that will significantly enhance patient experience.
Opened in 1902, the Princess Grace Hospital is Monaco’s only public hospital. Recognising the need to adapt to the 21st century, the government of Monaco has invested approximately €1 billion in an ambitious project to build a new hospital facility.
As part of the construction management team, our role is to provide project control services, as well as to oversee both planning and budget management.
A complex project with specific challenges
The new Princess Grace Hospital is complex in several respects. First, the site is on a steep slope on a tight parcel of land in a dense urban area. Second, the building needs to meet very high sustainability and healthcare design standards. Finally, as the existing hospital will remain open during construction, disruption must be kept to a minimum and site safety prioritised.
We are working closely with a team of architects and engineers to meet these project-specific challenges, such as French firm AIA Life Designers and Tractebel Engineering, a global engineering company specialising in low-carbon energy services.
Designed to benefit patients and the environment
With handover expected in 2032, the stunning new 100,000-square-metre facility will contain state-of-the-art operating theatres and 470 beds. Thanks to its elevated position, there are expansive sea views and the landscaping features numerous roof gardens and terraces.
The design is highly energy efficient. Not only will the bioclimatic design of the outer shell help to maintain comfortable temperatures inside the building, but local solar production will also cover 50 per cent of domestic hot water needs.
Furthermore, most of the new hospital is being built with low-carbon concrete.
We are proud to be coordinating the delivery of this world-leading healthcare facility that will significantly enhance patient experience and outcomes for the people of Monaco once complete.
