Key milestone for Health City Novena / by Broadway Malyan

The team at Broadway Malyan Singapore celebrated the masterplan milestone award for Health City Novena at a commemorative event earlier this month.

The event promoted the opening of an exhibition at Tan Tock Seng Hospital, which members of the public will be able to attend and view the plans as well as a live-feed of construction works taking place on site.

Currently, the Clinical Sciences Building is under construction; a 20-storey building which will house state-of-the-art teaching and research facilities including a four-bed mock ward with several consultation rooms so that students can learn in a realistic environment.

Broadway Malyan was employed by Tan Tock Seng Hospital to lead the design, detailed masterplanning and strategic healthcare planning for the site at Novena back in 2011.

Plans were finalised for the 17-hectare site two years ago and include the integration of the existing hospital building with a new National Centre for Infectious Diseases, an Ambulatory Centre, National Skin Centre Expansion, Integrated Intermediate Care Hub, a new medical training school, research centre and community care hub.

When complete in 2030 it will serve 30,000 patients, visitors, staff, students and residents a day, doubling the existing capacity of the hospital.

Speaking about the event, Monique Suksmaningsih, associate director masterplanner at Broadway Malyan, said:  “We have worked on this project for a long time and it is great that we had the opportunity to celebrate the next step forwards.

“Health City Novena will transform patient experience, providing a range of high quality, accessible healthcare facilities and ensuring that care provision is aligned with the changing demographics in Singapore. 

“The design also incorporates new and improved public spaces and better pedestrian links to the wider area and nearby MRT station which will help to put the community at the heart of these plans and integrate this large-scale development with the existing location.”

Health City Novena will be delivered in two phases. Phase one will be completed between 2018-20 and the full site will be delivered by 2030, subject to detailed plans and approvals.

The project was prepared in line with the BCA Greenmark District Guidelines with the aspiration to create a green and sustainable Health City for Singapore.
