The new 800 bed Acute Hospital, complete with an integrated community hospital, is to be situated on a 27 hectares brown-field site within the restricted limits of the existing Southmead Hospital.
Located approximately two kilometres north of Bristol city centre, the new hospital will provide world- class healthcare services to a local population of around half a million residents when completed in 2014.As Structural and Civil Engineers for the project, TPS has provided engineering support services to Carillion, the main contractor, from the project's conception in August 2007, as well as being the CDM Co-ordinator.
TPS worked with Carillion and the design in the early stages to phase the construction in order to allow the new hospital facilities to be occupied ahead of demolishing the remainder of the existing hospital.
