Key facts & Challenges

Bristol’s new £430m ‘super hospital’ was completed in 2014. Covering a total footprint of 113,000m2, the state of the art hospital offers 800 acute beds, 24 state-of-the-art theatres, a helipad for the emergency services and an emergency department which can treat large numbers of patients. Located on 17 hectares of brownfield land, Southmead Hospital combines two facilities on a single site. It has set a new design standard for the NHS, with exemplary patient care and well-being at it’s heart. The main contractor for the project, Carillion, appointed sub-contractor, BR Hodgson as its drylining contractor. BR Hodgson appointed Siniat as its key supply partner.

Installation phase

The biggest installation challenges for the drylining package was the scale of the work – which included an expansive concourse and 38km of walls. Accommodating the additional heavy service demands, both in the patient wards and in the clinical sections were also very challenging, but met by Siniat’s technical detailing.
