Yangon Hospital Myanmar

Yangon Hospital, Myanmar

Max Fordham are advising on the major refurbishment of Yangon General Hospital, one of the largest and most important public healthcare institutions in Myanmar.

The regeneration of the nineteenth century hospital will see one of the country's most important public healthcare institutions become a sustainable environment for medical professionals and patients.

Continuing our relationship with Article 25, Max Fordham are providing technical advice for the project - including the reviewing of surface water drainage, environmental modelling and general mechanical and environmental systems. Our design includes environmental modelling to limit overheating including roof design, natural ventilation and insulation. Our initial work providing technical advice is now moving into a masterplanning exercise for the hospital. 

The Rangoon General Hospital Reinvigoration Charitable Trust, chaired by Daw Aung San Suu Kyi, was created to support the renewal of the Hospital. This was also the site of Aung San Suu Kyi’s first speech after her release from house arrest in 2010.
