The Royal Oldham Hospital, The Hulton Building

Client: DAY Architects & Integrated Health Projects

Architect: DAY Architects

We were part of the team to deliver a £ 23 million new build four-storey building, comprising 7400 m2, including rooftop plant, connecting the main hospital building at all levels and including an open central courtyard. The new building consists of two new 24-bed ward accommodations on two floors, with the top floor accommodating a shell and core area with riser and ceiling void space provision for future services for the floor.

Our team produced enabling works packages to allow the site to be made safe to allow for future works to commence, along with surveying the existing infrastructure and establishing the works that were needed to demolish existing buildings and accommodate the new facility.

The Hulton building is to be constructed to BREEAM 2014 ‘Excellent’ with the design stage BRUKL calculations undertaken to indicate the building design to achieve at least 5 BREEAM 2014 credits, along with Thermal Modelling being in line with HTM03-01 and CIBSE guide. All external lighting is to be controlled via daylight sensors, and all the lighting is in line with SLL and CIBSE LG 2 and CIBSE LG 7 for computer working areas.

The project will receive 100% of heating and domestic water energy use for the building from on-site renewable technology. This is to be provided by utilising a Combined Heat and Power plant installed in the main hospital boiler room with an emergency steam backup system. The CHP will also serve other plate exchangers in the hospital but ensures 100% heating and hot water load to this building.
