When Sheffield Northern General Hospital needed a day care room, MPH Building Systems was the first port of call
With many years of experience in providing modular building solutions, MPH swiftly responded to the urgent request for the installation of a day care room in a central courtyard location at the hospital.
With limited space available, the site was unsuitable for a conventional, permanent structure and posed a challenge. The MPH project team carried out an initial site inspection, which also included a survey by a specialist crane company, to make sure the vision could become reality.
Attention to detail was paramount throughout the design process, and regular meetings took place with the hospital to ensure no omission of details and that MPH met exact requirements. It was critical that the floor levels of the modular building matched those of the existing hospital, to guarantee no compromise to services, and to provide a seamless extension of facilities. The building also required high ceilings to connect it to services already housed in the roof voids.
Originally designed as a flat roof link, MPH recommended a specialist link as an alternative, which would match the existing roofs and enhance the appearance of the modular building. This involved integrating a pitched roof into the design.
