Leading provider of healthcare facilities Kier has successfully completed the GBP 98 million transformation of Heatherwood Hospital in Ascot in UK for Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust. The 11,500 square meters new building offers a range of first-class facilities to support planned, non-emergency procedures for NHS and private patients. The space includes state-of-the-art theatre, outpatient and diagnostic facilities for orthopaedics, cardiology, radiology, lithotripsy, physiotherapy, and orthodontics. In addition, the site has a primary care hub.This latest project supports the wider ambitions of Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust and will bring some of the best planned care services in the country to local residents across Berkshire, Hampshire, and Surrey.Kier was appointed to deliver this scheme through the p21+ framework and has utilised the latest digital technology and Building Information Modelling when constructing the new healthcare centre. It has achieved a BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) very good status with a solar farm covering a large section of the hospital’s roof. What’s more, a robust sustainable urban drainage system is installed under the car park. Rainwater from the roof drains into a nearby balancing pool, preventing flooding and will be used to promote biodiversity in the area. In addition, 10,000 cubic meter of soil was repurposed, meaning no soil was imported to, or exported from site, plus 95% of all site waste was recycled.When the new hospital is ready for patients, the existing Heatherwood Hospital buildings will be demolished.
