The cornerstone-laying ceremony for the new All India Institute of Medical Science (AIIMS) in Nagpur, Maharashtra, was held on 14 April, 2017. The International design, architecture, and planning firm Perkins Eastman is the designer for the new campus. The 150-acre campus comprises healthcare, academic, and residential zones to create a holistic environment that reinforces AIIMS’s position as India’s premier medical sciences institution. Perkins Eastman, together with the India firm, Edifice Consultants, is designing the entire development, estimated for completion in 2020. The Nagpur campus will be located in the MIHAN (Multimodal International Cargo Hub and Airport at Nagpur) project, establishing the first AIIMS presence in Maharashtra.
This campus is one of the three comprehensive AIIMS campuses Perkins Eastman is designing and planning in partnership with Edifice Consultants. The other two are AIIMS Kalyani in the state of West Bengal, and AIIMS Guntur in the state of Andhra Pradesh.
