The “turn key” A&E extension comprises the single storey extension (8x15m approx.) and refurbishment of the department whilst occupation and use 24/7 was maintained. The initial “enabling” works included gas and water services diversions as well as construction of a retaining wall whilst maintaining unhindered access to ambulances and the public. Simple trench foundations were designed and installed whilst the roof was designed to take above normal plant loading enabling for future installation of additional equipment. Careful and detailed sequencing of operations was agreed in advance with the contractor based on our risk assessments/sequence of works.
