Buro Happold, in conjunction with Bailer Garner and BAM Construction has delivered a thoughtful and sustainable design providing a safe, pleasant and therapeutic environment sympathetic to the needs of the staff and patients.
The Kingdom Hospital extension is an architectural competition to provide an additional 92,700m2 on the existing site. The accommodation included extensive outpatient clinics and day theatres.

The Rosario to Victoria Toll Bridge and associated embankment provides a direct 60km link between Rosario in the province of Santa Fe to Victoria in the province of Entre Rios in Argentina. A ferry service was in operation prior to the bridge being built but stopped once the bridge was opened.
The I25 Express Lanes in Denver were originally built as seven miles of HOV and Rapid Bus Transit lanes between downtown Denver and the US36. In June 2006 they opened to traffic as express lanes which means that solo drivers are now also allowed to use the HOV lanes if they pay a toll. The lanes have proved very popular and there are now plans to extend the scheme along the US36 to Boulder. Although the construction of Phase I of the US36 is already underway, the Colorado Department of Transportation (CDoT) and the High Performance Transportation Enterprise (HPTE) have proposed that the Phase II extension along the US36, along with Phase I and the existing I25 express lanes, should be combined into a single design, build, finance and operate concession.
GlaxoSmithKline's new LEED Platinum Five Crescent Drive corporate facility is setting a precedent for high-performance commercial developments that meet the needs of both client and end user.

Integrated services provided by Buro Happold played a pivotal role in the successful design and delivery of the project which is designed to achieve minimum energy consumption and maximum maintenance efficiency while being environmentally responsible.

Working closely with architects John Thompson and Partners, we prepared a detailed economic and spatial strategy to support a masterplan for the redevelopment of Dalian’s eastern coastal periphery. The proposed redevelopment, adjacent to the CBD of Dalian City, is substantial in scale incorporating former docks, shipyards, commercial zones, areas of natural beauty and a large petrochemical plant. The economic study involved significant data collection, analysis and interpretation of primary and secondary data sources, in order to best appraise alternative uses for the site.
