Sheikha Salwa Al-Sabah Centre for Stem Cell and Umbilical Cord
SSH has been awarded the design for the Stem Cell facility in Kuwait that will be constructed on a site area of approximately 12,000 sqm.
The Healthcare team will conceptualise the design, produce the drawings and coordinate the information from the various disciplines for all the design phases of the facility. In addition, the SSH team is responsible for the output of the following documentation: architecture, structural, mechanical, electrical engineering, plumbing, quantity surveying, medical planning, equipment test fit and interior design.
The facility will house an outpatient centre for healthy adult stem cell collection, a fully self-sufficient cryolab, which stores adult and cord blood stem cells, as well as stem cell research facilities. The flow between the departments was jointly planned by the SSH medical planning team and a specialist strategic partner. Our shared expertise enabled the team to develop a critical adjacency matrix to rationalise departmental relationships. As a consequence the proposed location of departments within the facility is governed by this matrix, the outcome is the convenient location of access points and efficient circulation that minimises travel distances of staff, donors/ patients, visitors and blood samples.
This state-of-the-art facility will increase capacity, improve turnaround times for processing, and offer the potential for research-related activities. It will ensure that any cell products are produced in accordance with the strictest international accreditation standards and therefore deliver improved patient care.
