AZ Zeno in operation26 June 2018
The new AZ Zeno hospital in Knokke-Heist is open!
AZ Zeno is a hospital with a futuristic and uncompromising design. The new building is located on the Belgian coast and floats above the landscape. This image is reinforced by the parking garage, which is deepened and partially covered.
This design offers various challenges. For example, the function and users of the building require optimum wind conditions around the building and good ventilation of the parking garage. Security, comfort and quality must be guaranteed with respect for the architectural and landscape design.
CFD offers the solution
Regular calculation methods often fall short, but state-of-the-art techniques such as flow analysis with CFD offer the solution. Actiflow carried out such analyzes and provided the design team with insight and advice. Read a detailed description of this special project via the link below.
