Hampshire Clinic, Basingstoke

Hampshire Clinic Projects - Ridge & Partners LLP

General Healthcare Group, an independent healthcare provider, appointed Ridge on a key project to produce a modern surgical theatre for the Hampshire Clinic in Basingstoke. Our appointment came after we had already established a relationship of trust with the client, as well as an in-depth understanding of the organisation’s needs, through previous successful projects.

The project delivered a 55m² operating theatre and associated facilities, including anaesthetic, scrub, prep and disposal rooms, lobby areas and a supporting plant room (which included standalone air-handling plant). An enabling contract provided substructures for a car park and external works.

The site is built into a chalk bank, so substantial excavation was required before the substructures could be constructed. An extra challenge was the client’s stipulation that construction time on-site be minimised in order to limit disruption to the existing hospital, whilst maintaining extremely high standards of quality in design, construction and finishes. Based on our expert knowledge and a process of careful consideration and comparison, Ridge delivered the optimal solution by procuring the building as a modular structure.

As a result, the single-story new build was largely constructed off-site and a specialist modular contractor crane-lifted the prefabricated modules onto pre-prepared foundations. This met the client’s requirements, reduced risks and improved efficiency.

With the modules in place, the building services plant was connected and finishes installed. The new building was linked to the existing hospital by creating an opening through its external wall and the 36-space car park was built into the chalk slope with a retaining wall.

The project was successfully delivered well within budget and on time, with minimal construction time on-site. Ridge was then appointed for further work with the client.
