Recycled building - ward block, treatment rooms, changing rooms, store rooms

New ward building

Organisation : Hull Royal Infirmary / North and East Yorks Health Authority

Building Use : Healthcare

Product : Cabins, Modular Buildings

Location : Hull

Requirement :

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals Trust had a need for interim ward accommodation ahead of the traditionally busy winter months and to act as a ‘decant' facility to allow the upgrading of wards.

Solution :

A two-storey 17,600sqft modular building accommodates two new 28-bed wards, and was completed in just two and a half months. It is located in front of the busy Hull Royal Infirmary building and is linked to the main hospital by a specially constructed enclosed link corridor at ground level. The interim building will remain in place for around 18 months while the construction of a permanent medical ward block is carried out.

The building comprises 52 steel-framed modules and on each of the two floors, there is a ward containing four 6-bed rooms and four single-bed rooms each with ensuite facilities.

Each ward has a nurse's station and offices, treatment rooms, staff changing rooms and rest rooms, a fully fitted kitchen, store rooms, a linen room, and clean and dirty utilities.

“We are delighted with the new ward block. Winter is a very difficult time for hospital staff and bed capacity is always a key issue for large trusts such as Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals. I have been impressed with how quickly this building has been constructed and anyone can see from the finished wards, that they look anything but temporary. The facilities are excellent.”

David Johnson, Chief Executive of the North and East Yorkshire and Lincolnshire Strategic Health Authority
