Extension of Children’s University Hospital
The extension of Temple Street Children’s University Hospital delivered a two-storey outpatient building, incorporating the neurology, nephrology and urology departments, alongside a spina bifida clinic.
The 1500m² two-storey extension was constructed above the existing one-storey outpatients’ building. The works included the fit-out of the new extension, with typical hospital finishes for clinical and non-clinical rooms. Externally, similar cladding was required to complement the previous outpatients’ extension, which was constructed in 2000.
Working closely with the design team, Currie & Brown provided quantity surveying services on the project, which involved working within a live hospital environment, adjacent to, and over, emergency access routes. The site was located within a confined area, which was heavily trafficked with staff, patients, visitors and emergency access vehicles. The outpatients’ building on the ground floor remained fully operational during the works. Extensive restrictions were placed on working hours, working methods, noise pollution, dust control and timing and location of deliveries.
