Magnolia House

Client: Birmingham Women's & Children's Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Role: Cost Advisor

Project value: £1m

A very high profile and unusual NHS construction project located in the middle of the hospital. An entire bereavement centre was constructed in the almost landlocked garden with every single element of the building passing through a small gate and through a garden that was operational 24/7.

The entire construction site was surrounded by complex operational departments from complex care, to CRF, surgical day care and Heart Investigation. Despite the complexity of the build process and the location of the construction site, not a single infection control incident occurred throughout the entire project. Due to the nature of the facility the Client wanted a non-clinical feel, high specification and sustainable construction. This included feature lighting, underfloor heating, engineered floor finish, feature bulkheads, glazed curtain walling, etc.
