Salford Royal

A new acute multi-specialty hospital built on an existing live hospital site.

Hulley & Kirkwood were Services Designers to the Balfour Beatty Joint Venture (BBJV) team on the £135m new Hope Hospital Acute and Education buildings. 

This project included redeveloping and providing new buildings for Salford Royal to create a new acute hospital building, an education building and multi-storey car park as part of a phased development.

The acute building comprises Accident & Emergency, Imaging, Emergency Assessment, Critical Care, High Dependency departments together with Intestinal Failure and Renal Wards and associated Outpatient facilities. Mortuary and manufacturing Pharmacy were integrated within the ground floor of the Education building.

The mechanical and electrical services design strategy was based around maximising the opportunity for offsite prefabrication. This approach for the M&E elements of this project provided a more sustainable way of delivering the scheme through the reduction of waste, it also provided a more cost effective and safer method as it reduced man hours on site. This was achieved by collaboration on design co-ordination to maximise off site pre-fab opportunities for service distribution modules and skid mounted packaged plant. Modular cabling installation was also designed in from the outset.
