News Capita Symonds Take Hospitals Deal

Capita Symonds has been appointed by Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust to provide civil, structural and mechanical and electrical engineering services on a £35m new build and refurbishment project at Princess Royal Hospital, Telford, and Royal Shrewsbury Hospital.

The scheme includes a new Women’s Unit at Telford Hospital covering approximately 70,000 sq ft over two floors. The proposed structural solution is a steel frame with composite metal deck and concrete slabs with the key challenge being dealing with the requirements for very rigid and inflexible floor plates in sensitive areas such as the operating theatres.

The contractor is Balfour Beatty Construction with Aedas providing architecture services.

Work is expected to start on site in August 2012, with completion anticipated in early 2014.
