The McAvoy Group delivered a £15m contract for the offsite construction of a new wing at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital in Cramlington.
The 6,500m2 three-storey building had to integrate seamlessly with the existing hospital. The first floor was fitted out to accommodate one of the UK's first purpose-designed Ambulatory Care units.
This was a highly complex project on a live hospital site that pushed the boundaries of offsite construction. McAvoy integrated the new wing with the design of the existing traditionally-built hospital and used offsite construction to reduce the build programme by 50% to less than 12 months. This helped the Trust to meet the rising demand for acute patient services. The approach achieved exceptional value for money and met the Trust's stringent quality standards.
The new wing was constructed using an advanced offsite solution and featured a number of innovations. It used larger, bespoke modules up to 14.85m long, specially engineered to provide a structural flooring solution that seamlessly integrated with the existing building. This met the key requirement for efficient patient flows, removing the need for ramps and steps.
