HEALTH CARE PROJECTS
THELLE MOGOERANE HOSPITAL
ZAR 1.4 Billion
Thelle Mogoerane Hospital is a new 760 bed government-owned hospital featuring a contemporary design and being further developed to offer Level 1 and 2 primary healthcare services to the people of Ekurhuleni.
The hospital is being constructed at a cost of R1.4 Billion. It will be one of the largest hospitals in the country, and has been designed as a series of modules on a flexible template to allow for easy modifications, alterations and potential future expansion.
Located near Vosloorus on the East Rand east of Johannesburg, the 50 000m2 hospital is a three storey building on a 7,48 hectare piece of land. What makes this hospital unique is its modular block design. Each department was designed within a standard block size and has a central horizontal service zone, with blocks situated between dedicated vertical lift lobbies. This allowed the architects and client the flexibility to juggle departments around without affecting the overall compact footprint of the hospital. The “modular block” prototype is designed around a generous hospital street, located on the ground floor. The street links all levels of the hospital and is the primary horizontal circulation spine for patients, visitors and staff, while providing patients with triple volume space for visual contact with all departments. All outpatient functions are located on and around this hospital street.
The hospital was designed to maximise natural ventilation and light as possible, with wards positioned on the outer perimeter of the building, with central vertical light wells to create pockets of sunlight within the hospital. Natural materials are being used throughout the hospital with facebrick and bright colours to create a natural healing environment. Many terraced areas were created for access to the exterior.
KING DINUZULU HOSPITAL
ZAR 1.1 Billion
The King Dinuzulu Hospital project comprises the revitalisation and extension of an existing Tuberculosis and Psychiatric hospital to include a new 400 bed Level 1 district hospital.

bed count of 900.
Total projected building cost at completion in 2008 = R445 Million.
The architectural responsibility is shared as follows:
50% Osmond Lange & 50% Shared between six emerging BBBEE Practices.
Osmond Lange is appointed as Principal Agent and Time and Cost Managers for the project.
TONGA REGIONAL HOSPITAL
Tonga Village, Mpumalanga,
ZAR 90 Million
This project comprised a 200 bed hospital including staff accommodation, situated in a rural area in Mpumalanga, South Africa.
The Mpumalanga Provincial Government called for national bids for “design & supply” packages for this project.
The submission by Basil Read, including a design proposed by Osmond Lange, was judged to be the best and most economical, and thus the consortium was awarded the project.
The project included the hospital, staff accommodation, sewerage disposal works and complete equipment and furniture fit out.
It was completed in 22 months from time of award. Government norms standards were matched and improved upon by approximately 15%.
DISCOVERERS 300 BED LEVEL 1 HOSPITAL
Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development
ZAR 1,3 Billion
Discoverers Hospital is a renovation, alterations and additions to the existing CHC 120- Bed Hospital. The new extension will incorporate a total of 300 beds and the existing CHC will be incorporated into the new hospital. The new Gateway Clinic located by the main gate, allowing easy access with minimal interruption to the main Hospital.
Phased implementation allows for the existing CHC clinic to remain operational. The layout of the hospital evolved from the Infrastructure Unit Support Systems (IUSS) guidelines for ease of everyday operation. The design of the hospital revolves around the courtyard, allowing maximum natural ventilation and lighting in most of the medical spaces.
LILIAN NGOYI 500 BED LEVEL 1 HOSPITAL
Gauteng Department of Infrastructure Development
ZAR 1,7 Billion
In line with the Department of Health’s Transformation service Plan and National Hospital Revitalization Programme the transformation of Hospital Services in Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital and the Johannesburg South Area (Soweto) is approved as a priority to start in this financial year (2014/2015).
The transformation of services includes the reduction of the bed numbers at Chris Hani Baragwanath Hospital (CHBH) by closing level 1 beds at CHBH and relocating them to new districts hospitals in the Greater Soweto Area. The construction of a 500 bed district hospital on the existing CHB site is approved as one of the new facilities in this transformation programme.
The existing site had already been developed. The project was put on hold in 2006 after completing the earthworks. The decision has been taken that the project must proceed in order to complete the process of transforming CHBAH and retaining it as a specialist and Academic Hospital.
The departmental relationship on ground floor level as per IUSS recommendations. The site layout is done in such a way that it maximises the use of space for clinical, parking and green spaces. The first option utilised the open area in front of the existing clinic, shaded north-east corner, for on-grade parking. Due to JRA requirements, as outlined under restrictions sections, it meant that the site size is reduced significantly and could no longer accommodate all the parking on grade. Taking the site topography into consideration, it is proposed that some of the parking is located in an open basement. It is believed that omitting the amount of imported fill to create a level platform will balance with the construction of an open basement.
The proposed open basement does not only benefit the hospital in terms of parking but also allows easy servicing of the hospital.
