Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Birmingham
Queen Elizabeth Hospital required additional patient space, so they relocated their Facilities Management Team to a new, purpose-built office constructed by Premier Modular.
The new building was installed in a prime location on the busy main entrance which provides 24hr access for the hospital. The hospital's project team considered offsite construction to be the best solution to minimise construction traffic, and disruption for patients and clinicians as the majority of the building could be finished offsite and then the modules lifted in over a few hours at the quietest times of the day. The substantially shorter programme also helped accelerate the overall project programme so the new patient facilities could be delivered quicker.
Premier Modular were chosen to construct the building due to their experience working in live healthcare environments and their ability to offer a high-quality finish internally and externally.
The building is single storey and provides, open plan and individual offices, a reception, meeting rooms, a boardroom, kitchenettes and toilet facilities. External finishes were a combination of Trespa and Eternit cladding with large curtain wall glazing incorporating solar shade fins as a key feature of the building.
Premier Modular carried out a full turnkey project including construction of new ramps and steps with galvanised handrails, hard landscaping to the perimeter of the new building and soft landscaping including new trees and planting.
