This pioneering project used offsite construction to provide a new wing at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital, pushing the boundaries of offsite. The first floor of this £15m 6,500m2 three-storey building accommodates one of the UK’s first purpose-designed Ambulatory Care units. This highly complex project on a live hospital site involved integrating with the design of the existing hospital and using an offsite solution to deliver the building to a very short programme, achieve exceptional value for money and to the Trust’s stringent quality standards. The McAvoy Group developed a hybrid solution for this project which incorporated both offsite and in-situ building methods and maximised fit-out in the factory to enhance quality and reduce disruption to staff and patients. This presentation will look at the project challenges, design and implementation – an exemplar scheme in the use of offsite for healthcare.
