Full project details

Laing O’Rourke completed works on several sections of the £350 million Grange University Hospital in Gwent, South Wales, allowing part of the hospital to open almost a year ahead of schedule as part of Aneurin Bevan University Health Board’s Covid-19 preparedness plan.

Victoria Head, Project Director of Gleeds – project and cost managers highlighted that “with the best will in the world, fundamentally, had this been a traditional build with the same start date we would not have been in a position to offer support to this national pandemic and the NHS. We’ve always been proud of the modern methods of construction (MMC) involved at Grange University Hospital and the programme savings which it offered compared to a traditional build but never have the benefits been more apparent than during this crisis”

The hospital stands ready to operate as a fully functioning facility supporting the NHS and acute services in South East Wales as soon as the Covid-19 data suggests it would be necessary and helpful. Meanwhile, using careful segregation fully endorsed by Infection Control, Building Control and Fire Officers, work will continue on the remainder of the build with a view to formally completing the scheme in spring 2021.
