Steel frame quickens hospital extension
Working on behalf of main contractor Interserve, Hambleton Steel has erected 300t of structural steelwork for the three-storey building. The extension, which is a stand-alone structure, will be linked into the existing hospital buildings via a steel footbridge.
The project was awarded as part of the ProCure21 framework and involves the hospital improving and relocating its intensive care facilities and children’s wards into the new purpose built unit. The new facilities will include an intensive care unit with 16 beds and two isolation rooms, and an integrated paediatric unit with a total of 32 beds including surgical and medical wards.
