Economic Modern Hospital Construction at Eugene Marais Hospital, Pretoria, South Africa

The planning and design procedures adopted for the hospital are reviewed having due regard for economy, speed of planning and construction, and the installation of the various services. Many of these services had not been finalized when detail drawings were being prepared for tender purposes. The structural design had thus to be sufficiently flexible in concept to avoid costly and time-consuming alterations for such services during construction. W.M. Stern
