KMD Architecture, in association with Pivotal International, worked on this project. Pivotal International prepared the Master Plan design proposal for a new academic medical centre in Jeddah. The academic medical centre includes the following proposed program elements:
- Academic Campus
- 5 Medical Colleges (1,000 students each)
- Student Centre
- Recreation Centre
- Teaching Hospital (300 beds)
- Ambulatory Clinic Building
- Hotel with Conference Centre (& 200 rooms)
- Research Building
- Corporate and Medical Office Building
These program elements have been arranged on the site to create a place where students, faculty, doctors, researchers, medical staff, patients, students and visitors can thrive in their individual and collective endeavours. This is a teaching and healing community where each of its program elements contributes to an enhancement of the whole.
The principles of successful community design have been employed to achieve a rich and sustainable community experience. The new academic medical centre master plan design provides for an academic medical centre, visible to the surrounding community as a committment to improving the quality of healthcare and healthcare education in Jeddah.
