Overall contract programme | 32 Weeks
Elliott was awarded a contract to design and build the prestigious new two storey Clinical Support Unit (Opthalmology) at Pinderfields Hospital in Wakefield.
The permanent solution building, housing an advanced eye clinic and state-of-the-art office space, was constructed by Elliott using the latest Ibex steel frame modular building system which allowed large elements to be completed off-site.
The façade is clad in a combination of facing brick, render and Trespa panels. Latest ducted air conditioning technology is used to manage internal environments within clinical areas.
Acting as Principal Contractor Elliott completed the project in just 32 weeks including site remediation and external works. The rapid construction schedule minimised disruption to the hospital environment and offered service users access to the ophthalmology unit at the earliest opportunity.
Sustainable and eco features incorporated into Elliott’s design include increased levels of insulation, low energy lighting, energy efficient heating systems and water saving technology.
The completed building was designed to achieve a BREEAM Excellent rating.
