968,750 sq ft, 400-room hospital in Monaco for AECOM-led consortium

AECOM Technology Corporation announced today that an AECOM-led consortium was awarded a $85m contract for the new Princess Grace hospital in Monaco. AECOM’s fees for the project are expected to be approximately US$18 million.

AECOM will act as consortium lead and program manager for the approximately 968,750 sq ft, 400-room hospital. The consortium was selected after being one of three groups invited to participate in a design competition for the new hospital.

In addition to AECOM, the consortium includes AIA Associes as international architect, the Monaco architect Natacha Morin Innocenti, AIA Ingénierie for heating, ventilation and air conditioning design and sustainability, and Tractebel Engineering SA for foundations and structural design.

“AECOM is excited to work with our consortium partners in playing a significant role in imagining and creating an innovative design for this prestigious project,” said John M. Dionisio, AECOM chairman and chief executive officer. “I look forward to the team delivering a state-of-the-art hospital to serve Monaco’s residents and visitors for decades to come.”

Design work for the new hospital is expected to begin in July and last for two years, followed by a 10-year construction period reflecting the highly constrained site and the need to minimise impact on the existing hospital.
