News of the construction work of the largest hospital and university in Morocco: a 36-story tower 150 meters high

Morocco, a country of challenges, a land of skills and achievements, is in reality booming, unlike some other countries. Morocco has chosen to follow a policy of major projects, thus launching hundreds of large-scale projects, not only in the cities which will host the 2030 World Cup, but in all regions of the kingdom, from Tangier to the point further south of the Moroccan Sahara.

An example is given by the capital Rabat, where the largest health institution on the African continent is currently being built. The work is progressing at a record pace and has exceeded forecasts, knowing that the project is entirely supervised by Moroccan skills.

Work on the Mohammed VI university hospital complex project in Rabat has reached advanced stages. This health and university center will have a capacity of more than 1,044 beds for the hospital and more than 5,000 students for the university attached to it. The complex will include a tower more than 150 meters high, made up of two underground floors and 34 surface floors, for a total of 36 floors.

The project consists of two towers in total: the main tower, dedicated to hospital services, measuring approximately 150 meters high and comprising thirty-six floors, and the second tower of fourteen floors, including three basements, intended for the League National Fight against Cardiovascular Diseases. A new generation medical-technical center will meet the requirements of contemporary health services, including all the necessary facilities such as emergencies and resuscitation. The project will also include operating theaters on five floors with three basement levels, as well as a conference and education center.

This project is a pioneer in the field of environmental preservation, being a bioclimatic project generating renewable energy thanks to 3,000 square meters of photovoltaic panels installed on the roof of the reception hall, and exploiting the wind for natural ventilation of the rooms located on the different upper floors. It will also collect rainwater to treat it and reuse it for watering green spaces.

The total capacity of the hospital is 1,044 beds, with a total cost estimated at six billion dirhams, including three billion eight hundred million dirhams devoted to studies and works. The project execution deadline was set at four years, knowing that the work was launched by His Majesty King Mohammed VI on May 5 two years ago.
