Award Criteria

  1. Architectural Excellence

    The mayor challenge in the construction of El Salvador Transition hospital was to design a functional building that could comply with all the technical requirements of the Chilean Ministry of Health and after the 48 months lease, be part of our lease fleet for other uses as temporary offices. The project was elaborated in 6 different buildings depending in the medical use; Otolaryngology, Psychiatry, Labs, Pesticides, Ophthalmology and dermatology and HIV.

  2. Technical Innovation & Sustainability

    The special use of this building as a medical facility and having in thought that after the 48 month lease we will have to use the units as a typical space Rental unit, we design all the buildings with 18 sq m modules for an easy re-utilization and cost effective process. The 6 buildings were installed in the parking lot of the actual Hospital, meanwhile they start with the demolition and new construction.

  3. Cost Effectiveness

    The complexity of the project and the small time for errors, made Tecno Fast the perfect option to complete the project in time, with work taking place in the plant meanwhile the client prepared the utilities and facilities to receive our on site team. The individual modules are completed in plant and send to site, saving money in expensive on site work. The modular system allowed meeting of deadlines initially considered for the inauguration of the building, allowing to start with the demolition of the old hospital and start with the construction of the new one.
