Smart Health Care Facilities in the Caribbean - Final report UK Project

Download (2.87 MB)

The Smart Hospitals project successfully established a new paradigm that added climate change mitigation (green) to the safety of facilities to natural hazards. The project lasted from 2015 to 2023. With this initiative, a new gold standard of A/70 has been established as the resilience goal for health facilities in the Region. 28 of the 55 health facilities retrofitted through the UK-funded project met this A/70 target, while an additional 6 facilities are between A50 and A70. The project further demonstrated the importance of embodied carbon benefits when retrofitting rather than building new facilities.
