Design and new build project. The foundations and erection of structural steel framework was completed first before knocking through to the existing building to connect the two together.
Phase 2: Emergency Department and Adult Majors
Extension and refurbishment to Emergency Department and Adult Majors base, creating a Majors two.
- All areas of the hospital remained fully operational throughout the entirety of the project, but disruption was kept to a minimum
- Designs had to constantly be revisited and adapted in line with covid regulations where necessary
- The team had to remain flexible to deal with the knock-on effects of the national health crisis such as delays to materials, social distancing measures and a regular influx of patients
- Work had to be undertaken out of working hours to deal with logistical challenges as a result of working adjacent to a busy Emergency Department as well as refurbishment works taking place in clinically operational areas too
