New Hospital at Tollerton, Nottingham
Client: Spire Healthcare
In conjunction with Architects Halliday Meecham, Richard Herrmann Associates are proud to have provided the structural and civil design associated with a new hospital for long-term client, Spire Healthcare. The construction commenced on site during the summer of 2015 and is scheduled to be complete early 2017.
The two and three storey hospital will provide theatres, diagnostic facilities, wards and care facilities, along with associated plantrooms and staff accommodation. The hospital specialist use requires a deep understanding of the intricate equipment support requirements for items such as medical pendants, theatre extract canopies, MRI and CT scanners, etc.
Theatre floors have been designed to accord with strict deflection and vibration criteria, whilst integration with extensive services and the floor, wall and roof penetrations required is also essential.
The civil engineering element of the project involved design and detailing of the access road and car park pavement. Overall site drainage was achieved by utilising an attenuation pond.
