We’ve delivered the largest project in Wales ahead of programme, under budget and to a high standard. We couldn’t have achieved this without the dedication shown by the WSP teams.

The process for checking the design in 3D hadn’t been done before so we put together a best-practice way of working that everyone could follow. The approach saved us time, it saved the factory time, the elements got to site quicker and ultimately the hospital was built quicker.

With every detail crucial to realising the potential benefits of the design for manufacture and assembly approach, managing the flow of information was crucial. We developed trackers to ensure everything stayed on schedule and we could get critical elements through the factory on time.
