11 August 2020
Başakşehir Çam (Pine) and Sakura City Hospital, an example of public-private partnership (PPP) construction by Renaissance Healthcare Investment and Japan’s Sojitz, wins the Award of Merit at Engineering News Record’s (ENR) 8th Global Best Projects competition in the healthcare category.
The success story of Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital, a joint project by Renaissance Healthcare Investment and Japan’s Sojitz, is crowned with a prestigious recognition. The hospital received the Award of Merit in healthcare at the 8th Global Best Projects competition by ENR, an industrial publication dating back to 1917. Submitted to ENR’s award committee by ARUP, an engineering consultancy firm offering know-how and experience to Turkish market since 1982, the project outperformed nominees from 21 countries across six continents to win this award, a global testament to the engineering success of the Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital project.

The “ENR Global Best Projects” judges, renowned names of the industry, recognize top construction projects and contractors based on five criteria including safety, innovation and teamwork.

Başakşehir Çam ve Sakura City Hospital was delivered after a record-shattering 32 months, earlier than the planned date. With this early delivery, developers Renaissance Healthcare, one of Turkey’s top healthcare investors, and Sojitz, a leading investment and trading company in Japan, have defied the recent pandemic-related challenges.

The 2,682-bed Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital serves with a daily patient capacity of 32,700 across an area over 1 million sqm. The complex is looking to solve healthcare needs of not only Istanbul but the entire region. Equipped with 2,068 seismic isolators, Başakşehir Çam and Sakura City Hospital is also known as the world’s largest base-isolated building.
