Located in Fallowfield, Manchester, this project was for an extension to the Christie Hospital in the form of an infill to a previous semi-internal courtyard with difficult access and logistics.

As Christies is a large cancer treatment facility with many visitors, it was essential to keep noise and disturbance to an absolute minimum and present a clean and calm atmosphere. This was achieved by the maintenance of rigorous standards in every area, and by the constant monitoring and re-evaluation of working practices. Cleanliness and site presentation was maintained by strict daily regimes, and details such as discouraging smoking confirmed respect for the hospital’s patients.

A number of support initiatives were actioned for the Christie community, including joining with a sister site to raise over £5000 for the children’s unit via an Easter Egg sponsorship event.

This project demanded the utmost in considerate construction techniques and commitment, and the site team demonstrated this in full measure.
