York Hospital Emergency Department and ICU

York Hospital Emergency Department and ICU

Redevelopment at York Hospital to provide a new 2-storey extension and new modular unit to the existing Emergency Department.

Healthcare - Yorkshire

Project Overview

The project redeveloped facilities at York Hospital to provide a new 2-storey extension and modular unit to the existing Emergency Department.

The new facility provides an eight-bed resuscitation area, twelve assessment and treatment cubicles, a safe room for mental health patients, a new infectious disease cubicle and a newly remodelled waiting room with a children’s play area.

The building 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.

The Challenge

The new Emergency Department had to deliver a vital new eight bedded resuscitation area, and following the Covid pandemic, a new ICU, along with improvements to the consultation and treatment areas which would increase capacity and provide better care for patients, as well as a better working environment for staff. 

Our Solution

For the project to be practically and economically viable, a combination of a single storey vertical extension above the existing 1970`s frame, and a horizontal extension out the front of the existing ED, along with some internal reconfiguration to the existing ED layout ensured the scheme went ahead.

We maximised the existing structure as far as was reasonably possible, reconfiguring and extending the Trusts existing assets and minimising the extent of new build required. The modular unit for the new ICU allowed work to commence on site sooner and reduced the amount of construction activity.

Project Highlights

Using our embodied carbon toolkit we assessed the embodied carbon content for a new steel frame to be 280kg CO2e/m2, but using and adapting the existing building saved approximately 1,000 tonnes of embodied carbon emissions.
