Project Challenges
The project threw up many challenges primarily down to the fact that the hospital required the building 10 weeks after it was lifted into position.
We were required to liaise with the hospital trust to agree a scheme that worked for the many different departments who often have different priorities. In addition to the main fit-out we were required to assess the hospital’s existing services infrastructure and then design a new infrastructure for heating, power and drainage and run these services through a fully operational hospital to serve the new ward.

The building was operational within the time scales and we had no major issues that prevented the building operation. A remarkable project of just under 20 weeks from start of design to operation by the hospital.
