Final A&E Expansion phase awarded – 19/12/12

New Units at NGH

Henry Boot Construction’s Eastern Division has just been awarded the final phase of the Accident and Emergency Expansion programme at Northern General Hospital in Sheffield.

Works begin early in the New Year and follow on from the CSSD and CDU refurbishments currently underway in the north Sheffield hospital.

The A&E department will remain fully operational throughout the working period, which runs to July 2013, and close liaison with the nursing staff will ensure minimal impact on the working environment.

Works include the demolition of existing rooms within A&E to create additional emergency bed spaces, a new resuscitation room, a relocated main nurse base station and other staff and support facilities.

On top of the internal works, a new ambulance entrance, link corridor and canopy will be constructed to the front of A&E, as well as an internal link corridor providing access to the former CSSD area.

The project comes under the Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust framework, under which we have already delivered a number of successful projects across the Northern General and Royal Hallamshire estates.

“We are pleased to announce that we have secured the final phase of the A&E refurbishment at Northern General Hospital for our valued repeat client Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. This is a complicated project in the heart of a busy emergency department and we look forward to delivering another successful scheme.”
