Provision of temporary access utilising R.M.D. based supports for the cantilever scaffold and a crane liftable encapsulated scaffold structure to protect open exposed roof areas while replacing sections.
Bassetlaw District General Hospital is an NHS hospital in Worksop, Nottinghamshire. The main hospital building dates back to 1976, with blocks 47 and 43 housing mental health facilities and operating theatres built with lightweight reinforced autoclaved aerated concrete roof panels (RAAC). Considered a revolutionary building material when fitted, recent issues with this type of solution have led to the NHS conducting a national replacement programme at their sites throughout the UK.
During the replacement works, the hospital theatres will be relocated into three temporary modular units in the car park so they can remain fully operational. Also, to access the roof area and store materials on-site, the visitor car park facing the hospital’s main entrance will be closed and repurposed.
The project is in partnership with Integrated Health Projects (IHP), a joint venture between Vinci and Sir Robert McAlpine.
