Derbyshire healthcare projects topped with steel

Posted on by in News

Working on behalf of main contractor IHP, a joint venture between Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine, Elland Steel Structures is fabricating, supplying and erecting the steelwork for two Derbyshire mental health facilities.

The dual development, at Kingsway Hospital in Derby and Chesterfield Royal Hospital, will provide new units each with 54 en-suite rooms.

Each facility will also be equipped with additional resources including a shared therapy room, kitchen, fitness room, online library resource room, arts room and access to a secure roof terrace/garden for wards on the first floor.

According to IHP, the scheme will provide a rare investment and a unique opportunity to improve adult acute care facilities to benefit the people of Derbyshire, giving service users and staff an opportunity to shape the future of mental health facilities and environments.

Both of the two-storey concrete-framed units feature multiple long-span pitched roofs, which are being created with steel columns and beams.

The overall project is due to be complete by summer 2024.
