Building work has progressed at an exciting pace, keeping to both time and budget.
More than 400 workers, including electricians, lift installers, floor layers and painters, are on site each day working hard to complete the building. The outside of the building is finished and can be seen from the viewing platform on top of the multi-storey car park.
Landscaping works are well underway including the installation of a glass entrance canopy, new footpaths around the building and creation of a dedicated service yard.
The construction of the new road junction to the front of the hospital is nearly complete. This will provide a new vehicle and pedestrian access, as well as the introduction of a filter lane on The Ridgeway to help ease congestion.
Power has been turned on in the new building and the construction team are getting building systems, such as the information technology and nurse call systems, fully commissioned and ready for use.
The building itself will be completed in June 2018. Services will move into the new building in phases over the summer months before the hospital fully opens in autumn 2018.
