Washwood Heath Health Centre and Wellbeing Centre

This project for Birmingham and Solihull LIFT comprised the design and build of a two and three storey Primary Care Centre to include a GP practice, urgent care facilities, ancillary clinics, pharmacy and community facilities
  • Client:
    Mansell Construction

  • Location:
    Washwood Heath, Birmingham

  • Project Value:
    £7,000,000

  • Services Provided:
    Civil and Structural Engineering Consultancy (Post Financial Close)

  • Added Value:
    The original proposal for the project was to use a vibro piled ground solution. Through detailed discussions with the ground investigation specialists and additional testing on site, Copeland Wedge Associates were able to offer an alternative lime stabilised solution for the sub- structure works. This, together with the major re-modelling of the site saved cost and streamlined the programme considerably.

Description

The building was delivered on a brown field city centre site with the construction being steel frame with insitu composite floors. The curved facades and split level roof presented a number of challenges for the structural design. The project required extensive ground modelling to minimise the volume of materials being exported from site, together with comprehensive ground engineering to allow a lime stabilized solution to be adopted in lieu of the vibro piling which had been detailed by the incumbent structural engineers. This enabled an increased ground pressure to be achieved, resulting in pad foundation sizes being reduced accordingly.
