Built in the 1960s, Huddersfield Royal Infirmary’s current Accident and Emergency department is no longer fit for purpose and is instead being replaced by a brand-new state-of-the-art extension from HRI.
The new building will house ‘majors and minors’ treatment areas, comprising 19 treatment bays in total, alongside four resuscitation bays and two x-ray rooms.
The single storey building will be open 24/7 and its ‘design life’ is estimated to last for the next 60 years.
Howard Civil Engineering has been awarded a £2m contract to deliver the groundworks on this project.
Following the successful delivery of enabling works on this scheme, work is now underway to construct the foundations of the new building, undertake the associate drainage works, and subsequently deliver the external works to the surrounding area.
