Engineering Oncology Institute of Nîmes - Building Exterior

World-Class Care on a Single Site

Bouygues Bâtiment Sud-Est was the contractor on this major development project which has brought every step of cancer diagnosis and treatment to a single site, providing patients with world-class care, advanced research and new technologies, comfort and wellbeing to every step of their recovery.  With 99 individual rooms this centre focusses on patient experience with highly specialised services and efficient processes reducing the length of stay.

Improved Relationships Through a Well-Organized Flow

The particular attention dedicated to the layout of the institute has allowed for a well-organized flow of the rooms, enabling staff efficiency and satisfaction, and improved links and relationships between facilities, specialists and physicians, directly benefitting the patient experience. In addition, thanks to the upgraded transport networks designed by our team, this oncology centre is easily accessible to its patients and their families and provides approximately 200 car parking spaces. The centre also offers a self-service catering facility.

Improved Fire Safety and Light Management Systems

Our team also provided the client with fire safety system coordination and electrical engineering which allowed the production and distribution of high and low power currents. We also designed the lighting and undertook the sustainability designs including dynamic thermal simulation, sunlight simulation and daylight factor assessments, climatic studies and the environmental constraints management.
