A&E Extension takes shape at Queen Elizabeth Hospital

Rossi Long have provided civil and structural engineering services to assist with the fast-track delivery of the new A&E extension at the Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King’s Lynn.


The £2M project, which links to the existing A&E department provides additional observation areas and administration space on two storeys within the footprint of an external courtyard, has been conceived and designed to  be delivered within 6 months from design commencement. 


The scheme utilises tried and tested methods developed by Rossi Long for making alterations to the existing structural fabric developed over previous courtyard infill schemes including the MRI and Aseptic Laboratory schemes.  The reduced programme is largely achievable by the use of off-site modular construction, allowing simultaneous construction of the groundworks and superstructure. 


The units were delivered to site last weekend and delivery of the modules went smoothly, allowing the links to the original building and internal fit out to progress.  Completion is scheduled to be on programme and due to open later this Spring.  Click here to review the media coverage of installation of the units, and also the timelapse video.
