case study liverpool university

Royal Liverpool University Hospital, Liverpool, UK

Structural steelwork is playing a crucial role in the redevelopment of one of the largest hospitals in the north of England.

The new Royal Liverpool University Hospital will boast 646 beds all in single en-suite rooms, 18 theatres, 23 wards and units, and one of the largest emergency departments in the North West. Also included is the five-story Clinical Services Support Building (CSSB) its two link bridges, a contract that has required Elland Steel Structures to fabricate, supply and erect more than 900 tonnes of structural steelwork.

The project has been divided into three phases, which includes the buildings, link bridges, and demolishing older buildings. Overall, it represents a vital regeneration of an area that acts as a gateway into Liverpool city centre.
