Sewell Construction has been appointed to carry out reconfiguration works on the third floor of the health centre.
The £12m centre, originally built by Sewell, was identified as a building which could be used more effectively following changes in how the local authority delivered services there and this work was part of supporting NHS Hull CCG’s clinical services strategy, as well as ensuring that resources are used to best effect.
Reconfiguration works will take place on a small part of the ground floor and the entire third floor which include demolition works, a full strip out of the current facilities including walls, doors, ceilings and then re-installing new facilities.
Mechanical and electrical works will also be carried throughout the project.
As works will be taking place in an operational health centre, Sewell have created an external access rig to allow equipment to be transported in and out the health centre to minimise disruption to the other live areas.
Once completed in late summer, the Story Street building will have extra bookable clinical rooms and space for Hull City Council to relocate some of its community health services.
