From the increasing number of projects known to us a presentation short list below.

The US Pentagon co-finances hospitals used by its employees from various divisions of the military. Worldwide the Pentagon demands a separation of base building and fit-out. This separation is a condition for its investment program. The reason for this is that the extensive, ongoing developments in healthcare and health organization are at odds with long-term investments in buildings. In addition there is a strong correlation between how care is organized and the fit-out, regarded from regulations about climate control and internal lay out. The Pentagon has worldwide contacts with more than one thousand hospitals that are (being) built according to these requirements. The Veterans Program of the Pentagon is not yet involved, but may follow later. See the English summary research paper phase 1 Healthcare Facility US Army

(full document available on request) and the powerpoint presentation of the progress made therein. It is expected that follow-up documents are available within a year.

For twenty years the canton of Bern in Switzerland has been building its real estate for education, healthcare, offices and other public functions according to the division between base building and fit-out. Every single base building must be suitable for all regular utility functions. Meanwhile, several buildings or parts of them, have already changed function which has yielded interesting learning and earn back effects.
