    Redevelopment at York Hospital to provide a new 2-storey extension and new modular unit to the existing Emergency Department. The new facility will provide an eight bed resuscitation area, twelve assessment and treatment cubicles, a safe room for mental health patients, a new infectious disease cubicle and a new remodelled waiting room with children’s play area.

    The new build links into the existing 1970’s frame in two locations, tying in with existing levels whilst also achieving current compliance with modern building regs and HTM/HBN requirements.

    Key points:

    • We maximised the existing facilities as far as possible, reconfiguring and extending the Trusts existing assets, minimising the extent of new build required.
    • Modular unit for the new ICU allowed work to commence on site sooner, and reduce the amount of construction activity.
    • Cell Beam steel frame solution minimised columns within the new build allowing for the greater flexibility and use of the space.
    • BREEAM Very Good (Target)
