Acknowledgement About Istanbul Kartal Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Training and Research Hospital

The pioneering component of Istanbul Seismic Risk Mitigation and Emergency Preparedness Project (ISMEP) managed by Istanbul Project Coordination Unit (IPCU), Istanbul Kartal Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Training and Research Hospital, of which Concept Design and architectural & engineering Detailed Design have been completed by NKY, is in the service of Istanbul as of March 2020. My deepest thanks go to all our team members and IPCU team who have participated in this project with great discipline, concentration and patience…

Among many, Kartal Hospital is recognized primarily for two important attributes: Sustainable Design and Emergency Response. Kartal Dr. Lutfi Kirdar Training and Research Hospital was awarded the ‘Best Sustainable Healthcare Building’ within the ISBS 2019 Best Sustainable Practices Competition last year in Texas, USA. The building is also planned as the first ‘new generation’ seismic isolated public hospitals in Istanbul with 85 cm oscillation capacity; where it will continue in full functionality in the unfortunate event of an earthquake, fire or any pandemic. https://nky.com.tr/projects/istanbul-kartal-dr-lutfi-kirdar-training-research-hospital/
