- Build a hospital that remains operational immediately after an earthquake or other disastrous event (Importance Level 4 rating).
- Make AGVs an integral part of the building to ensure that staff can focus on patient care.
Eleven stories high and spread across ten hectares, NRAH hosts 800 beds and 6,000 staff and the hospital sees an estimated 85,000 inpatients and 400,000 outpatients every year. Its innovative design uses cutting-edge technology to set new standards in conservation and environmental management. Through careful co-ordination and planning, KONE successfully installed an extensive list of solutions that helped the hospital meet its ambitious goal of achieving smoot h people flow. This included no less than 41 elevators, including helipad lifts and a network of Autonomous Guided Vehicles (AGVs). The AGVs reliably cover up to 700km a day delivering up to 500 kilograms of supplies, food and equipment to different people across multiple stories.
