Peterborough City Hospital, is now regarded as the City’s most significant building project since the cathedral was built in 1238. The outcomes of this project exemplify Brookfield Multiplex’s signature approach to civic design.
Brookfield Multiplex Europe completed the US $565 million three months ahead of schedule.
The healthcare campus features: a 612-bed, 22-theatre Major Acute Hospital; a 98-bed Mental Health Unit; a 39-bed City Care Centre; a multi storey car park; helicopter pad; hard and soft landscaping and highway works.
The Acute Hospital encompasses specialist areas including; a Cancer Centre, Cardiology Centre, a Women’s and Children’s Unit and Adult and Paediatric Emergency Centres.
The design of each facility is patient-focused to facilitate a good standard of care and also to promote a comfortable experience. Emphasis is placed on colour, views, natural light and artwork of a sensory-considered design. The windows are purposefully located to ensure green views are available where possible, otherwise Sedum roofing and courtyard installations have been established to enhance the vistas.
Peterborough City is the first new-build hospital in the UK to pioneer innovative ‘Cruciform’ wards – four-bedded bays that create a large personal space around each bed and maximise the availability of daylight.
An ‘Excellent’ NHS Environmental Assessment Tool (NEAT) rating has been achieved, along with commendation for innovations including the Energy Centre using a CHP solution, ‘Green’ Sedum roof, Ethylene TetrafluoroEthylene Co-Polymer (ETFE) roofs to the Atria and lightwells (resulting in higher transmissions, improved thermal performance and reduced heating costs) and features such as touch sensors to taps.
The diligence of Brookfield Multiplex in understanding and achieving the Trusts’ aspirations has resulted in a state-of-the-art hospital for Peterborough with numerous innovations, finishes of exceptional quality and a welcoming and user-friendly environment.
The standard of workmanship and finish has been continually praised by the Trust, Independent Reviewer, hospital staff and patients.
