Bradford Royal Infirmary

Client: BAM

Value: £1.48 million
Location: Bradford
Contract Period: 16 Months
Contract Type: NEC3 Subcontract Option A

In March 2015 Bam Construction was appointed by Bradford Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to deliver a £20m new three-storey ward block development at Bradford Royal Infirmary.

The works included paediatric and elderly patient wards, a critical care unit, retail, car parking, accessible access routes and roadways for the hospital.

The project was handed over to the hospital in March 2017.

Howard scope of works

  • Civils and substructure works to form new temporary entrance building into the hospital
  • Excavation for basement works
  • Basement slabs and walls
  • Suspended upper floor RC slabs and roof
  • External works retaining walls and steps to cater for differences in levels across the site
  • External works kerbs, Marshalls 'Mini Beany' and 'Pavedrain', paving and street furniture
  • Surface and foul water drainage
  • 3no. Stormbloc attenuation tanks
  • Service duct infrastructure

Challenges to the build

  • Construction immediately adjacent to a live hospital environment
  • Extremely tight site footprint with topographical challenges

Overcoming these 2 significant challenges was key to the sucessful delivery of the Bradford Royal Infirmary Extension. Without the team ethos that was evident between Bam and it's suppliers and subcontractors, this challenging project would not have been the success it is today. 

As quoted from BAM's Senior Site Manager

 'It was most appreciated that Howards stepped up to the plate and aided the BRI contract to be handed over this morning for safe access to the unit. I have thanked your lads on site but please let everyone know we do appreciate it'
