Project description

The hospital provides a state-of-the-art environment for patients, with services open to all. The new facility includes 54 beds; a large outpatient area with 20 consulting rooms; an oncology suite of six treatment cubicles and sensory garden; three laminar flow/laparoscopic theatres; and a hybrid theatre. It will also incorporate a JAG (Joint Advisory Group on GI Endoscopy) compliant endoscopy suite; a five bed critical care unit; a fixed MRI and CT unit; and an enhanced physiotherapy facility with access to an outdoor exercise area.

This prime site by Nottingham Airport in Tollerton will place Spire in an ideal position to service the Nottingham and wider East Midlands area. It is expected that the facility will create around 250 jobs, supporting healthcare locally by offering a full range of surgical and medical treatments.

Enhancing communities

To support the pathology department, our team handed over the unit at the end of one of the hospital wings early – this enabled them to access the building early and install their specialist equipment. We changed our logistics to ensure this unit had its own access and egress for pathology staff, separating it from the works.

Specialist energy-efficient LED lighting is installed throughout the hospital to ensure maximum efficiency of energy use.

Early involvement of the Morgan Sindall team as part of the pre-construction phase enabled a full due diligence of the design. Through making design and material changes, we were able to save more than £1 million for the customer.

Challenges

The project is located next to a live airfield just metres from the plane taxiway. To protect the runway, careful selection of cranes ensured no oversail issues, whilst FOD (Foreign Object Debris) protection systems kept the site perimeter secure.

There are listed pillboxes located across the site, which must be retained – the team has implemented special protection measures to ensure works remain totally separate from these boxes
