Midland Met Hospital
MIDLAND MET HOSPITAL
Completion Date: 2022
The Midland Metropolitan University Hospital in Smethick, Birmingham will offer maternity, children’s and inpatient adult services to half a million people. Building work on this new hospital stalled after the collapse of Carillion in 2018. After a £350 million cash fund injection was granted by the government in 2019 work started in earnest to rescue the MMH project. As part of this rescue and recovery strategy Fulcro have proudly brought to bear their 18+ years of experience acquired on both privately and publicly funded hospital schemes.
Fulcro over the years has provided our specialist services for Technical Design + Coordination Production, for Architectural, Structural and Mechanical and Electrical Systems. This includes Virtual Reality Simulations for Stakeholders, DfMA, and CNC outputs for manufacture, on over 20+ hospital projects in the UK.
MMH has benefitted from our ability to draw on our teams experience and knowledge gained over the years to support the hospital’s recovery and rescue programme. With a focus on supporting the Buildings Services / MEP Design Coordination, Fulcro reviewed the initial scheme to identify areas of complexity so that once identified these target areas could be accelerated for early review and coordination, our sole aim being to prevent delay and abortive site works. We have then flexed and adapted to meet new design requirements, at the same time ensuring that when COVID hit the UK our MMH team were fully enabled remotely to continue working to ensure production and programme were maintained. In Healthcare Facilities, the Building Services / MEP Systems are complex due to the specialist systems and the extent to which standards and procedures must be applied, the business of a hospital after all is lives.
Our scope of services on Midland Metropolitan University Hospital continues to grow because we deliver a world class service supporting our National Health Service. It is something Fulcro have been doing since we were founded.. thus you could say the NHS is in our DNA.
