Project Value:

£3 million

IDP completed an exciting conversion of a group of existing, redundant and occupied departments into new clinical facilities at Birmingham City Hospital.

Led by our expert teams of Architects, Lead Consultants and Contract administrators (working side by side) we also completed a new MAU Department, Neurophysiology Ward and Maternity Unit.

The project, commissioned by Sandwell and West Birmingham NHS Trust was spread over a strict period of 12 months, but close collaboration between our teams meant we could successfully deliver on-time.

As lead consultants, IDP were responsible for the designs, coordination, procurement & on-site supervision from start to finish.

Our teams had deliverables including a number of specialist associated functions such as isolation and sleep monitoring facilities, clinical isolation facilities & new delivery suites; and all delivered in line with current of HTM / HBN standards of course.

As per standard healthcare practice, IDP ensured a high level of clinical detailing to satisfy infection control, and in-turn gained positive client feedback. If our client is happy we are too!

It wasn’t all straight forward however, our teams encountered a mixture of construction constraints and challenges including the presence of significant amounts of asbestos within live hospital areas, the operational interface of new services with existing departments and phased project programmes being carried out within active clinical environments.

These issues were successfully dealt with, through careful co-ordination and communication between IDP, other contractors and the operational team. A wonderful (and enjoyable) job well done.
