Our October 2022 newsletter on the redevelopment of Bro Ddyfi Hospital is now available from our website at pthb.nhs.wales/bro-ddyfi.
Now that the main construction work is nearing completion the Willmott Dixon team are continuing to advance the internal fit out. The Mechanical and Electrical (M&E) installation and internal decoration are both progressing well with flooring due to be laid during October.
Externally, the work to the fascia / soffit to the perimeter is underway with further external improvements including the render of the front elevation and car park works due to commence this month.
This month we have an updated project QR code. Simply scan the code using the camera on any mobile device to access the latest ‘Matterport’ model. The model allows you to take a 360° walk through the site and see all the latest construction progress. This is an exciting phase of the works as it reflects the countdown to opening the facility in the early part of 2023.
As part of the improvements to Bro Ddyfi Community Hospital, Willmott Dixon will shortly be undertaking works to improve our existing carpark. This will include new curbs, resurfacing, white lining, additional spaces and improvements to pedestrian access. In addition, PTHB will be installing an array of six electric charge points. Further ductwork will be in place to futureproof the site for predicted growth in the uptake of electric vehicles.
In order to undertake these works, we will need to temporarily close certain areas of the carpark which will restrict our current parking capacity on site. The works will be undertaken in three phases in order to mitigate the loss of spaces as much as possible. Signage will be in place to explain this temporary car parking restriction to visitors.
On behalf of the project team please accept our apologies for this inconvenience. This short term disruption will lead to a more accessible, safer and user-friendly car park for our patients and visitors.
At this point in the programme plans are being finalised which focus on enhancing the hospital environment. Interior design, wayfinding, signage, artwork and landscaping designs are all being refined. As part of this we are very pleased to share that we have developed three public art commissions which include; a feature sculpture at the hospital entrance, a wall mural within the main entrance and a series of poems / transcriptions to be displayed as wall art. We look forward to reviewing the submissions and providing an update in future newsletters!
