Ukwimi

N. Slijkerman

Health care center Ukwimi is a small hospital for the Ukwimi district in Zambia. In 2007 me and three other students had to opportunity to develop the main building for the hospital. We designed a basic layout with four treating rooms, two rest room dormitories and main entrance with back storage. The front of the buildings has a covered veranda, to shelter waiting visitors from the sun. A double roof system was designed to generate shade for the first roof and great a natural airflow that helps to cool the facility.

 

During this period we also gained sponsors for the necessary finance, my function next the designer was treasure. After half a year preparation we went to the site where I functioned as project leader. It was a great experience to develop this social project and work with locals; help them to develop the quality of life in Ukwimi.
