Worcester Acute Hospitals NHS Trust

When Worcester Acute Hospitals NHS Trust were planning a new car park at Worcestershire Royal Hospital’s Radiology Centre, we were commissioned as part of the Trust’s advisory team to provide civil engineering services for its design and construction.

Our involvement included advising on external works and drainage issues to allow an initial assessment of construction costs. We also procured and supervised contractors to carry out site investigation to validate assumptions about ground conditions and contamination issues.
We then prepared detailed external works, drainage and landscaping engineering drawings, specifications and management plans for incorporation into contract documents. Adequate drainage proved to be problematic because of shallow existing outfall levels. Careful consideration of site boundary treatments was also essential to make sure that finished levels and gradients didn’t cause any ponding of surface water.

Our role also included the administration of the contract and supervision of the car park construction and landscaping works – which were completed on time and within budget.
