40 million USD
The project, constructed in floors, serves as an icon of Tel Aviv, projecting optimism outward to the public space of Weizmann Street. On the façade facing Weizmann Street, a ramp is planned which would scale the entire height of the building and lead the visiting public to a healing garden and to coffeeshops and restaurants located on the building's roof.
The project includes renovation of the entrance floor (Level Minus One) for 4 halls to house 100 beds including an imaging unit as well as auxiliary and service rooms.
Additionally, new construction on the ground floor includes a new ambulance parking space, an entrance and waiting hall, reception offices, triage, a shock/trauma hall containing 6 stations.
Below that floor, a new protected technical basement is planned, intended to house machine rooms. On the upper ground floor (situated above the entrance floor), a ward is planned for an ambulatory emergency room and the First Floor is planned to house a short-term supervised hospitalization unit.
The building's façades were coated with climate glass, which integrates with the architectural language of the Sammy Ofer Heart Center. Execution of Stage A will commence in 2019. The project's area – renovation of existing emergency room at 4,000 sqm and additional new construction – 4,300 sqm.
In total, 8,300 sqm. Estimated cost of the project: NIS 115 million.
