Despite Covid delaying the start of our Contract at Aintree University Hospital we have now restarted under the direction of Main Contractor BAM Construction North West Ltd.
Strict working practices are in place to ensure safe working for all concerned although at present the main thrust is to get the Access into position and erected on some of the main elevations. This is a complex process of temporary works, scaffold and powered mast climbers all being provided by SGB.
We are in week No. 3 of a 58 week programme for Phase 1a, then we will move onto phases 1b and 2 which will take in the whole tower.
The project is expected to be completed by Autumn 2020, several weeks ahead of schedule and within budget.
The main Tower as it is known was built in the early 1960’s and this is the first major refurbishment of the entire façade comprising c12,000m2 of new windows and Aluminium Rainscreen Cladding.
d+b facades have been working with all major stakeholders over an extended period to arrive at a design that meets all the NHS Trusts requirements. The design culminated in a mock-up being installed in 2019 to provide an insight to how the building will ultimately look once completed.
