The redevelopment of the Pinderfields Hospital for the Mid Yorkshire NHS Trust, has brought Wakefield the much needed state-of-the-art facilities which have been designed around the patients’ needs and include the latest technology and equipment.  The Balfour Beatty led, fast track 190-week construction involved demolition of the old site, built in 1900, and the build of  90,000 m² of acute hospital space on a footprint of 22,000m². The themes of space, natural light and colour were conceived as two parallel wings for acute and inpatient services, liked by a central public atrium, with other blocks radiating outwards to form a series of courtyards.  The eastern block, containing specialist outpatient units,  was designed with a steel frame while the western building contains the acute hospital departments and was designed with a concrete frame. Atom Consultants provided BIM Coordination Services  and Temporary Works Design in line with the client’s main criteria of sustainability and efficiency. This truly fabulous hospital, fully opened in 2011,  houses several regional and specialist centres, such as a Regional Burns Centre and a Neonatal Intensive and High Dependency Care, and is an unmistakably superior addition to the whole region’s health and care needs.
