WSP was asked by the OYS to provide design and structural engineering services that would realize its vision of creating a 21st century facility, within a strict timeframe.
Our expert teams used prefabricated frames for the building, including its underground floors, to facilitate delivery of the unit, though the structures were moulded to the soil on site to maximize the building’s structural integrity.
We designed-in features that would safely accommodate the very latest technologies used in clinical services, for example, MRI facilities. The building has also been designed with the needs of tomorrow’s technology in mind, including a highly flexible information technology infrastructure.
The new outpatient unit was delivered during a five-year construction programme with completion achieved in 2010.
