Working in conjunction with Kier Northern – part of one of the UK’s leading construction companies – SiBCAS were selected to supply and install a 2 story modular office building within the car park area at the entrance to the Accident and Emergency Department.
- Size: 40’ x 30’ 2 storey
- Timescale: 4 weeks on site
- Non clinical administration including Offices, Seminar Room, WC, and Kitchen
Due to the location of the building, intricate planning and traffic management was of great importance. The installation took place during the operational hours of the A&E department. Due care and diligence was paramount, with the possibility of ambulances arriving with emergency casualties at any given time, meaning all operations would have to come to a halt until the area was once again clear.
It was a very challenging project immediately outside of the Accident and Emergency department, however, the delivery and installation of each modular building was carried out in such a way that there was no disturbance to the hospital.
I would like to thank the SiBCAS team for the way they carried out the delivery and installation of the units at York General Hospital. It was an extremely difficult operation right in front of the Emergency Department and all deliveries were achieved with no disruption to the hospital or the Emergency Department itself. It just goes to show that all the pre-planning and traffic management systems agreed prior to the works and included within the RAMS were well worth all the time and effort, deliveries on site were timed to the minute. The Trusts Capital Planning Department, the Emergency Department and Car Parking and Security have all commented on how seamless the works were carried out.
