Helping to Create the Future of Hospitals
When Shimizu builds a hospital, we stay close to the thoughts of the people who interact with the hospital, including the management, physicians and nurses, and patients and their families.
We begin by thinking about what kind of facility can meet the needs of the community and demands of the times.In building hospitals, we believe it is Shimizu's mission to contribute to the realization of healthy, safe and comfortable living through the construction of hospitals, which are part of the social infrastructure.We assist with this in many ways.Here, we introduce three examples from among the projects we have worked on to date.
Building the futuristic hospital that advanced hospitals aim for
Juntendo University Hospital, Building B
Project architect, basic design, construction supervision: Nihon Sekkei, Inc.

We assembled the expertise of Juntendo and Shimizu and succeeded in creating the futuristic hospital to show the world. We used the latest structural technology and fire evacuation system suitable for an ultra-high-rise building and established an advanced infection control facility for handling infectious diseases, among other advanced technology. The hospital was also recognized as world-class ecological construction.
