Project: Norwich Community Hospital
Site Programme: 12 Weeks
Norwich Community Hospital needed to replace and expand their outdated rehabilitation wards, Premier Modular Ltd worked with the hospital to provide a new building that worked completely independently from the rest of the site.
The ground floor houses a 24 bed ward for stroke rehabilitation patients whilst the top floor gives a 24 bed general rehabilitation ward. The new facility also provides specialist bariatric treatments areas, therapy areas, staff areas, catering facilities and storage and plant provision so it can act as a standalone building
The hospital had a strong drive towards providing a very sustainable building therefore it was designed to meet BREEAM ‘excellent’ standards. Ecological features include a rainwater harvester for toilet flushing and an air to water heat pump. The pump is self-contained on the roof of the building and provides domestic hot water for the under floor heating system. Overall the building was designed to provide a zero carbon rating.
Premier Modular Ltd were chosen to deliver this project as they had the flexibility in capacity to achieve the tight programme whilst still meeting the Community Hospital’s aspiration of design and sustainability
