Scope of works

The project incorporated the redevelopment of the dilapidated section of Listed Building at Leeds General Infirmary to form the state of the art MRI scanner department. The new build facility was undertaken within a land locked courtyard with full internal refurbishment to the new department and surrounding healthcare buildings.

Overcoming difficulities in material ingress and agress to the courtyard via various means including craning over the live hospital buildings; a new portal steel frame and the wall and roof cladding materials.

The new build facility was built with a sectional roof to enable the crane to allow the removal of the roof system to enable the new MRI scanner to be craned in and positioned directly into the newly created space. 

The project was carried out on a very tight timescale, under challenging site conditions, delivered on time and under budget.
