KG Constructions Group was chosen as a Facades Contractor for the New North Zealand Hospital (Nyt Hospital Nordsjælland) in Hillerod, Denmark. This clover-leaf shaped building is designed by famous Swiss architecture firm Herzog & de Meuron in conjunction with local Danish architects from Vilhelm Lauritzen. The New North Zealand Hospital will contain around 20 clinical departments with 570 beds and will cover more than 310 000 citizens from surrounding areas.

Despite its large size (118 000 m2) the Hospital is designed to be on a human scale by having only four floors at its highest point as well as transferring the feel of safety and healthiness due to it standing within the forest, closely surrounded by trees. A substantial part of the façade cladding is going to be constructed in wooden material in order to blend with the landscape and make it more welcoming for the patients and staff. Also, wood symbolizes deep Danish design traditions. 

Due to the size of the project the full facade scope (~40 000 m2) was divided to 2 different façade contractors, both from Lithuania.

Our services in this project include: design, project management, production, transportation and installation.

Our total scope of works in this mega building is:

  • 7 550 m2 of unitized curtain walls with thermo-wood and oak cladding;
  • 7 200 m2 of oak engineered timber stick curtain walls with aluminum AD-ON system;
  • 1 250 m2 of socles from thermoprofile elements with mineral wool insulation;
  • 730 m2 fire resistance stick façade;
