MPH Building Systems supplied a modular building to re-house the expanding Urology Unit at Hope Hospital, Salford.
The challenge was to provide a fully fitted 750 square metre, 28-bed ward facility, linked to the existing hospital and within a very tight timescale.
Buildings on the designated site were demolished and foundations prepared while MPH engineers designed the new building, working hand-in-hand with medical experts and estates staff, local authority planners and building control.
MPH completed the project in just 10 weeks, including the installation of sophisticated service areas and essential medical equipment.
MPH Building Systems' modular build project to design, manufacture and install a two-storey family assessment centre at Browning House was formally opened by HRH the Princess Royal.
The project timescales were extremely tight, allowing only a two-week window for MPH to initiate a meeting to discuss client requirements, submit a detailed quotation for the package of works and finalise contracts.
Following an initial site inspection, the challenge of the project was evident. Working within the confines of an inaccessible site, the advantages of modular building over traditional construction methods were brought into sharp focus. Our fast-track off-site manufacturing processes enabled both the brick wall cladding and pitched roof to be factory fitted prior to delivery, controlling costs and minimising disruption on site. Furthermore by drastically reducing the extent of the site works required both the speed and safety of the construction enabling works was greatly improved, alongside security and access issues posed by the sensitive nature of the organisation.
Designed by the MPH project team, the bespoke modular building included a family play room, kitchen, sleep room, offices, meeting and training rooms. Located within a conservation area, architectural features including a dual hipped pitched roof and facing brick finish were incorporated into the design to dovetail with the surrounding environment and satisfy the stringent requirements of the Local Authority Planning Office.
Running concurrently with the manufacturing process, the groundworks, undertaken as part of the turnkey package, commenced on site with a two week programme to include the foundation sub-structure, drainage works and tree protection measures.
In a challenging contract lift the 355 sq metre portable building was craned in two stages and positioned onto foundation bases. To enable installation a boundary wall was dismantled and later reinstated. A full traffic management plan was implemented to facilitate delivery of the building and two 100 tonne cranes were used to install the modules.
Staff at Browning House were delighted with the finished project, as Will Menzies, Finance & Administration Manager, explained: “I cannot fault the design, planning, construction, delivery or the final product. We had regular contact with MPH staff and they gave us confidence at every step of the capital project. The project was delivered on time and within our budgets. We are extremely happy with the turnkey solution that MPH have provided. I have no hesitation in recommending MPH for your future building requirements. They are a pleasure to work with.”
