Economic treatment for hospital contract

Posted on by in News

Forming part of the Greater Peterborough Health Investment Plan, Rowecord Engineering has successfully completed the supply and installation of 6,500t of structural steelwork and all metal decking for the new Edith Cavell Acute Hospital.

“Working closely with the main contractor Brookfield an innovative and economic steel solution was adopted for the £17M structural frame contract which we executed in 27 weeks,” said Philip Wiscombe, Rowecord’s Business Development Manager.

Scheduled to open in late 2010, the new 612-bed hospital, being built adjacent to the existing hospital, will include an emergency care centre, a high-tech diagnostics unit, a women and children’s unit, cancer unit, specialist rehabilitation unit and a training centre.
