In 2018 Central was appointed by Laing O’Rourke to design and install the roof and cladding systems on the new building situated on a 60-acre site.
Central played a big part in the construction, installing a SIKA liquid plastics waterproofing system, as well as all of the composite panels and rainscreens, with methods that allowed no scaffolding. A combination of off-site and on-site methods of construction enables the building to perform at the highest standards, futureproofing the hospital for further generations.
Hospital completed 4 months ahead of schedule, operational in 2020 and at full capacity in the pandemic. Completing the installation ahead of schedule is testament to the hard work, dedication and collaboration showed by everyone involved.
Rating of BREEAM Excellent, the hospital is identified as an ‘Exemplar Project’ by Constructing Excellence Wales and the UK Government in their 2020 ‘Construction Playbook’.
Receiving four awards: CEW ‘Project of the Year 2021’, ‘Digital Construction Award 2020’, ‘Off-Site Award 2020’ and Nationally – Constructing Excellence, Highly Commended ‘Offsite Project of the Year 2020’ as well as being an NFRC finalist in 2021.
