Together with consulting engineer AIA Ingénierie, BESIX completed the structural works in 2016. During the first quarter of 2017, the site was operating with 4 cranes in parallel, covering even the highest parts of the hospital. A peak of 100 workers were on site for the structural works. A maximum of prefabricated elements (pre-walls, prestressed floor slabs, hollow core slabs and pre-stressed beams) were employed to keep up the pace. Once the technical and finishing trades moved in, the workforce reached a number close to 400. Pre-reception testing and operating began early 2017 in order to enable the delivery on the contractual date.
