Construction of a new critical care unit above an existing theatre block, as well as a new helipad on top of an existing 10-storey adjacent building within the live hospital campus.
Careful planning and methodology are required to ensure the hospital continues to operate and ‘blue light’ routes are given due cognisance.
The management of other logistical challenges include a city centre site with limited access and Network Rail’s main line asset from London Victoria which runs parallel to the southern site boundary.
CCUOTB works to date include construction of new switch rooms, service duct, rerouting of existing services, road strengthening, exploratory works, excavations, bored piled foundations, contiguous wall and demolition of existing below ground tunnel structure.
Helipad works to date consist of the construction of the roof top structure to carry the helipad, installation of the helideck and access ramps, firefighting systems and services. Construction is ongoing for two service lifts and an amenity block.
Other key project members include: Watts Group Plc (Project Manager), Sweett Group (Cost Consultant), WSP (MEP Engineer), and Ross & Partners (Structural Engineer).
