The project

Difficult access into site due to a sharp 90deg narrow bend on approach around a protected tree. Extremely congested as the adjacent hospital buildings remained in operation throughout the build. Weekly client meetings to agree work plan and ensure compliance. All earthworks carried out during the wet winter of 2015/16!

Shallow strip and pad foundations were found to be possible. Nearby SW and FW connections, however FW run required diverting to fall the around new building. All diversions work carried out outside working hours to prevent disruption to the existing hospital. New mains services from highway in conjunction with mains utility providers.

Low level brickwork skirt constructed in-house by EvaBuild.

Resurfacing of existing service road, tarmac paths around building and extension of car parking areas nearby completes the scheme.
