Our multidisciplinary consultant team worked closely with the Birmingham NHS Trust clients on this major healthcare project. We provided civil and structural engineering consultancy, highways, drainage, geo-environmental, ecological and transport planning services for this major healthcare project.
Through intelligent sequencing of works and a phased site access scheme we successfully minimised construction impact, construction costs and programme risks to integrate the new development smoothly with existing facilities.
Complex changes to the road infrastructure were managed whilst maintaining all clinical services and necessary traffic routes. In addition to the expected infrastructure works on a project of this scale, a significant challenge was the diversion of the Elan Valley aqueduct, supplying half of Birmingham’s fresh water, in order to enable construction.
