Egis delivers the 1st phase of the future major cardio-thoracic hospital in Europe

Started in March, 2014, the building site of the future Institut Cœur Poumon (ICP) of the Regional University Hospital (CHRU) of Lille has just experimented a first important stage with the delivery by Egis of the tertiary building in time, marking the end of the 1st phase of works.

Medical-social sector and solidarity

The building covers about 18,000m2, and will house, in particular :

  • all technical / maintenance services,
  • access for bed-ridden patients,
  • the general reception hall and the hospital’s administrative services,
  • all medical tertiary services.

1re phase du futur Institut Cœur Poumon du CHRU de Lille
For that operation, Egis was tasked with the full engineering mission (studies and technical assistance with works) for the following batches: asbestos removal / cleaning out / demolition, metallic structural work, HVAC / plumbing / benching, medical fluids, high-voltage and low-voltage power supply, elevator apparatus, light automated transport, and roads and utilities infrastructure, as well as the mission to co-ordinate the fire safety system.


The delivery of the second phase, which covers the Cardiology Intensive-Care Unit and the first four operating facilities, is planned for March 2017. A new 180-bed accommodation wing will be delivered in September 2017. The work also includes two new successive phases of renovation and extension work on the existing building (the South half followed by the North half). All extension and renovation work should be completed in June 2020, taking the area covered by the ICP (Institut Cœur Poumon – Hearth & Lung Institute) to 75,000m2, making it Europe’s largest cardiothoracic hospital.
