About the event

Kier was selected by Bedfordshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust to design and construct major new 16,700m2 clinical buildings at Luton & Dunstable (L&D) University Hospital. This project will improve maternity, neonatal, theatres and critical care services, providing new high-tech facilities which will improve staff and patient experience and clinical outcomes.

The project includes the design and construction of a new acute services block and a new ward block which will house a delivery suite, the midwifery-led birthing unit, a neonatal intensive care unit with parent accommodation, an ambulatory surgical unit to support day case surgery, theatre suites and a critical care unit. A new five-storey link building will house three passenger lifts and will blend the new acute services and ward block with the existing hospital.

These new buildings will be constructed in a live hospital environment in the heart of the existing hospital estate, with neighbouring clinical blocks continuing to run throughout the build programme.

The project showcases Kier’s strength in sustainability and pre-fabrication. The team will use low-carbon concrete in the building frame and floor slabs while a number of building components will be pre-fabricated off site to reduce vehicle movements and carbon emissions. These include internal staircases with balustrades, and M&E pipework support and washroom panels. Kier will also use electrically-powered plant and machinery, including tower cranes and 360 degree dumper trucks.
