The Canada Wing and the remainder of the hospital site stayed operational and was used throughout by the public, staff and visitors to the hospital during the works.
Following the completion of a specialist ground penetrating radar survey exercise to identify any sub-terranean utilities, the foundations for the modular structure were set out and excavated to a depth of 1.5m. Spoil arising from the excavation was removed off site on a continuous basis, as there was very limited room for stock piling. Having made provision for drainage installation, the concrete foundations were poured sequentially and allowed to cure. With the foundations completed, our team followed on with the installation of formwork, allowing concrete stub columns to be created. Finally, all of the relevant drainage connections were completed and tested and the site handed back to the client.
