    This transformational development provides a new high quality and sustainable civic campus on the existing hospital site. The project includes the demolition of 60,000m2 of existing and outdated buildings, construction of a 40,000m2 new acute hospital building, a 2,500m2 education facility, 5,000m2 health and wellbeing hub, MSCP, 6,500m2 of new estates and administrative office space, and key worker accommodation as part of the long term (10 to 15 year) strategy.

    Curtins are also contributing to the new build construction of a £50m mental health facility.

    Sustainability has been a key driver for the North Manchester General Hospital development. Our design approach has included the assessment of the environmental impacts of the building using our carbon calculator. This has highlighted the carbon content of all structural elements and established a baseline carbon estimate at the outset of the project. We reported the Embodied Carbon content of the building (in kg of CO2 per m2), allowing the Trust to consider the carbon impact alongside construction programme and capital costs. Carbon Content Ratings have been provided on our drawings and within our RIBA Stage Reports.

    Key points:

    • Major redevelopment of existing hospital site
    • Long term programme of work comprising infrastructure, enabling works, new build and refurbishment works
    • MMC solutions
    • Sustainability and carbon reduction a major consideration within the design
