The Royal United Hospitals Bath, NHS Foundation Trust required a new building for their Medical Records and Information Management Technology Departments. Their brief was for a building that was easily adaptable and also needed to be economical and durable: precisely the solution that Öppen offers. The Öppen system was invented by SRA Architects, and it is a fusion of mass-customisation, Open Architecture, pre-fabrication and on-site assembly, lean construction, and open source materials. SRA Architects worked with Pollard as the main contractor to deliver this project using Öppen, and as a result of this approach, the project achieved a 15% reduction on cost and 31% reduction on delivery time against a traditionally designed building.
