Aberdeen Health Centre (Welbeck)

We worked alongside NHS Grampian and Robertson Construction to develop a New Emergency Care Centre for Aberdeen Hospital

We worked closely with the main contractor and the client’s engineer throughout the building regulation stage to deliver construction issue drawings early on.

We were asked to undertake the design and detail of the post-tensioned floors for the New Emergency Care Centre at Aberdeen hospital.

In particular, the development consisted of an 8 storey structure using 300mm post-tensioned slabs on a 7.5m grid. Each slab was recessed to accommodate flush fitted wash room pods.

This enabled the client to make decisions quickly and allowed development work to begin on site within schedule.
