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