Aintree University Hospital Extension

Sutcliffe was appointed by Tilbury to provide civil and structural engineering services on the two-storey extension of Aintree Hospital in Liverpool.

A new CT scanner, increased capacity for ambulance drop off bays and the refurbishment of the existing theatre complex are also part of the project. The Liverpool University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust said that the scheme will reduce wait times and enable the hospital to provide better care for patients.

Currently, Aintree Hospital is the home of Cheshire and Merseyside Major Trauma Centre, which sees more than 89,000 patients a year and services a catchment area of 2.3 million people.

The building is of steel frame construction with composite concrete metal deck floors, supported on piled foundations. The co-ordination between substructure and drainage within a constrained site as all adjacent buildings are due to remain live throughout the build programme.
