King Edward Memorial Hospital Bermuda

The King Edward Memorial Hospital was the subject of a PFI bid with the focus on a sustainable building and new amenity spaces for patients to bring Bermudas healthcare programme into the 21st Century. The existing building consumed vast resources including a high energy demand and over 60% of the island's potable water. Our role went far beyond landscape architecture and we were able to offer consultancy that looked at the landscape areas as a resource management strategy, helping to collect water and cool the building through green roofs and external patient gardens.  The landscape was designed to withstand tropical storms and had a chance to prove itself when hurricane Rafael struck in October 2012 with 145km/h winds.
