Steelwork completed at Salford hospital

Posted on by in News

More than 3,000t of structural steelwork has been erected for the new Hope Hospital project in Salford.

The project consists of a new 222 bed acute hospital, including both outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as a new emergency and critical centre. Additional steel framed buildings include a new education centre with lecture theatres, a library, 30 seminar/training rooms and a number of interview rooms.

Severfield-Reeve Structures designed, fabricated and erected all steelwork for the project and installed 34,000m2 of metal decking.

The new buildings will replace outdated Victorian wards and provide Salford with a better coordinated hospital site with facilities specially designed for modern healthcare.

Consort Healthcare (Salford), has been awarded a 30-year concession for the £135M project to design, build, finance and operate the new hospital which is due to open in 2012.

Main contractor for the project is a joint venture between Balfour Beatty Construction and Balfour Beatty Engineering Services.
