Grange University Hospital
Delivering a new level of quality and value for hospital procurement.
A pioneering Design for Manufacturing and Assembly (DfMA) approach allowed Laing O’Rourke to deliver the new £350m Grange University Hospital four months ahead of the original schedule, on budget and with zero defects. In fact, 384 beds of clinical ward space were made available for use almost a year early in response to the Covid-19 pandemic. Alongside DfMA, digital modelling allowed all stakeholders to engage with the design early; identifying efficiencies and preventing errors while ensuring medical professionals had a state-of-the-art facility that allowed them to deliver the highest standards of patient care to a population of over 600,000.
