The works consist of the construction of a new part single storey and part two story acute mental health unit along with stores and ancillary hospital accommodation. The gross floor area of the new building is approximately 3500sqm. Works include demolition of existing single storey modular building, significant reduction of site levels, new retaining walls, link to hospital, new internal road arrangement, car parking and other associated site works. The proposed construction is concrete frame structure with steel roof structure. External walls are generally Masonry cavity walls with sections of rain screen cladding. Roofs are a mixture of flat and pitched roofs.
The applicant should note that the main hospital will remain operational throughout the works. As a result, works for occupied areas will need to be done at night and outside of normal working hours.
The applicant should note that the Lift, Mechanical and Electrical works will be undertaken by specialists selected by the contracting authority and nominated to the main contractor as indicated in section 1.7.
The HSE has confirmed that enabling works are due to begin by June 2017, with the main construction expected to get underway in early 2018.
The unit is scheduled to open before the end of 2019.
