Great Progress on The Day Surgery Project at Castle Hill

Our Day Surgery project is making excellent progress at Castle Hill Hospital.

This project is split into two main areas, the Waste Compound area and Day Surgery Unit building. The waste compound area involves a new building and the surrounding groundworks that will be built over a 20-week period. The main part of the project is on a 58-week programme where we will construct the new day surgery building after groundworks.

Currently, the Enabling Works are nearing completion with the new gardener’s store ready for the offices, M&E and internal finishes. The waste compound is ready for the formation of the transformer area, fuel bowsers and air source heat pump bases- with a mixture of paladine and palisade security fencing to the perimeter. Works on the lagoon are on schedule with it successfully dug out and now receiving the puddle clay liner – which will then be ready to form part of the overall SUDS design for the whole of the Castle Hill Hospital surface water-run off. Some parts of the project are already complete including HV electric diversions, gas diversions and surface water connections.

Ahead of fluctuating steel prices we have completed the steel frame design and procured 26 lots of steel (350tonne) ready for call off / erection in May.

Over the next 4 weeks, the gardeners store will be demolished (including asbestos removal works) and the first stage of 75 strip and pad foundations will be installed ready to stand up the new steel frame.
