Kings Mill Hospital Nottinghamshire

BSP Consulting carried out a civil and structural engineering role in improvements at the King’s Mill Hospital project, near Sutton-in-Ashfield, Nottinghamshire.

Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has been awarded £2m capital funding to boost the accident and emergency services at the hospital.

It was part of the Trust’s long term plans expand and improve the capacity of their Emergency Department. The work involved upgrading facilities to increase capacity, support patient flow and reduce crowding.It also helped to cut the risk of Covid-19 infections.

A fast start on site for the decant enabling works enabled the primary area of expansion to be vacated, followed by internal alterations and refurbishment to create a new Ambulatory Emergency Care Unit (AECU) in two phases.

Following completion of this work and the vacation of the existing AECU facilities the project then focussed on the delivery of an expansion to the Resus facilities through the provision of 5 new Enhanced Care Beds, whilst maintaining operation of the existing Resus bays and staff facilities right at the core of the Emergency Department.

BSP Consulting was employed by TAD Architects under the NHS Shared Business Services Framework to provide structural and civil engineering advice on the project.

BSP chartered structural engineer Monika Anszperger said: “BSP is proud to have played a supporting role in helping to improve the facilities at one of Nottinghamshire’s hospitals. This has come at a time when we value our NHS more than ever.”
