The planning and design of St. Olav’s Hospital is the result of winning first prize in an international competition in 1995. We have been responsible for all aspects of hospital planning and development including the functional and medical structure, logistics, the innovation development of its form and structure, the integration of the university and the medical facilities and the natural development of the area within the city structure of Trondheim.

The main objective has been to integrate the university and the teaching hospital to produce an effective patient-oriented processing facility for health and welfare services. This has been achieved by the development of an effective hospital plan and structure, which highlights this quality.

Located in the centre of the city, St. Olav’s Hospital has been fully operational throughout the construction period. A major element in our competition proposal was dedicated to the necessity of keeping the hospital operational during demolition, rehabilitation and construction.

The location of the university hospital within the grid based city structure of Trondheim imposes a design discipline for the development of the various clinics, buildings and facility centres.

Six clinical centres are built around a central square, each centre with its own landscaped central area – these centres are linked below ground with technical and service culverts and on the first floor with bridges for patients and staff.
