The Grange University Hospital formerly called the Specialist and Critical Care Centre was opened ahead of schedule in November 2020 to help respond to the winter season pressures and the Covid-19 second wave.
The Hospital provides care for those who are seriously ill, have complex problems or conditions that can’t be safely managed at another local general hospital.
It uses the landscaped areas, views across the surrounding countryside to help promote healing and wellness for staff and patients.
The largest area of the hard landscaping can be found outside the front entrance which alongside the pedestrian area includes bicycle storage, a bus stop and a one-way vehicle looped driveway.
Mortars were first delivered to the site in December 2019, with the project running into the initial Covid-19 outbreak and first UK lockdown. During the lockdown, our production facility was run on a skeleton service, while we supplied paving products to this essential project. With the extra pressures of the reduced staff and added in safety procedures to keep everyone safe, products and tools were all sent out and arrived at the site on time.
