Poole and Bournemouth Hospitals

Large-scale reconfiguration of the Royal Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals.

Healthcare - South West

Project Overview

This phased scheme comprised the large-scale £250m reconfiguration of the Royal Bournemouth and Poole Hospitals to provide better care and facilities to the region. Poole will become the management hub for the Trust as well as the site for major planned care.

The work at Poole Hospital Theatres will transform the hospital circulation pattern providing more streamline routing. An overhaul and upgrade of the services and equipment has been included which will help the existing spaces as well.

The structure utilises a DfMA approach to construction mainly due to tight access and boundary but also reducing disruption in noise and vibrations. Peikko’s DeltaBeam Slimfloor construction was used on a steel frame to provide the structural support as well as satisfy strict vibration requirements operating theatres require under the latest guidelines. Use of modular and prefabricated MEP equipment was also integrated. The external risers minimised builderswork holes whilst maximising internal space for more important spaces. UHD Trust are very pleased with the outcome and see it as a flagship, setting new standards for hospitals to come.

Royal Bournemouth Hospital is a major new-build extension with 20,000sqm of clinical space. The new facilities include:

  • New main entrance

  • One of the largest Emergency Departments on the south coast, including dedicated imaging facilities with two CT scanners and three x-ray rooms

  • Urgent Treatment Centre

  • Maternity unit providing seven birthing pools, six birthing rooms, two designed for the birth of twins, two obstetric theatres, a special care baby unit, neonatal, antenatal and postnatal care units

  • Paediatric unit with single rooms and space for parents and carers to stay, plus space for schooling, recreation and socialising

  • 30-bed ITU suite

  • Multi-storey car park

The Challenge

Building in and around an existing live hospital providing access to either side into the existing buildings.

Our Solution

A bridging wall was incorporated at Poole Hospital over existing footings to eliminate demolishing which would have caused users disturbance in the amount of noise and vibration it would have caused
