Alder Hey Children’s Health Park | West Derby | A New Children's Hospital and Parkland | £237m

Alder Hey’s new-look £237m hospital





ALDER Hey’s plans for a new-look £237m hospital were today set to receive government approval.

The ECHO understands the treasury will give the go-ahead to the rebuilding project.

It is the final hurdle which needed to be vaulted before the new complex could be built and marks a new era for Alder Hey, which set out on its mission to build a new hospital fit for the 21st century eight years ago with the help of an ECHO campaign.

Alder Hey chairman Sir David Henshaw said: “This is a huge moment in Alder Hey’s illustrious 100-year history.

“The new hospital will enable us to build and maintain our excellent reputation of care and improve the experience of patients and their families while placing us firmly on the world’s stage.

“This is a really exciting time for everyone connected to Alder Hey as together we look forward to an incredible future.”

The hospital’s chief executive Louise Shepherd said she was “extremely proud” of the care that takes place at Alder Hey every day but said the current premises in West Derby were “old and overcrowded with limited room for expansion”.

She added that the designs for the hospital were inspired by children and it was a drawing from one of its patients which inspired the new-look Alder Hey – based around a flower design.

She said: “The new hospital will be fantastic for our patients, families and staff and will enable us to achieve our ambition as an internationally renowned children’s hospital.”

Alder Hey in the Park Fly-Through



Alder Hey Children’s Health Park

The new building will rise out of the park on approach with an undulating profile, making it instantly recognisable and a striking and iconic gateway to Liverpool.

Central to our idea was ensuring that the majority of rooms (whether for children or staff) enjoy park views and that gardens and terraces are equally accessible to all.

Three open fingers radiate out from the atrium concourse, the distinctive entrance space, that forms the hospital’s public hub. These fingers of clinical space alternate with gardens, intertwining building and landscape.

Brief

• create a hospital that engenders well-being and raises patients’ and visitors’ spirits by adding to their quality of life

• integrate hospital and park for the therapeutic benefit of children, their families and staff

Results

• a unique concept recasting Alder Hey as the Children’s Health Park and creating 'a hospital without precedent'

• the latest thinking on infection control, patient dignity and privacy, segregation of patient, clinical and facilities management flows and technological advances

Facts

Location: Liverpool, UK

Client: Laing O'Rourke

Construction cost: £237m

Completion: 2015/16

ACORN Consortium Awarded Alder Hey Children's Hospital

Amazing designs for a new Alder Hey hospital were revealed at a special event today. The iconic new building, which has been inspired by children, was unveiled by the Secretary of State for Health Andrew Lansley.

As a specialist hospital, Alder Hey provides 275,000 episodes of care to children and young people every year. It is one of Europe’s biggest and busiest children’s hospitals with a national and international reputation as a Centre of Excellence for children with cancer, heart, spinal and brain disease. However, this outstanding care is currently being provided in buildings which are almost 100 years old and are not fit for providing modern day services.

As an Investing in Children hospital, Alder Hey has ensured that children have been fully involved in developing the plans.

Louise Shepherd, Alder Hey Chief Executive explains: “We are extremely proud of the care that takes place every day in our hospital. However, it is credit to our staff that they continue to provide quality healthcare in a building that is old and overcrowded with limited room for expansion.

“The designs for the hospital have been inspired by children and it was a drawing from one of our patients which inspired the design we will see today. We felt it was really important to design this hospital with the help of our children who have been involved throughout the development phase. They have helped our bidder to get the design right for children and young people. The new hospital will be fantastic for our patients, families and staff and enable us to achieve our ambition as an internationally renowned children’s hospital.”

The new hospital will be built in Springfield Park, next door to the current site. Once the building is constructed the existing Alder Hey will be demolished and turned into a replacement park. The new Alder Hey will therefore sit right in the heart of the park, surrounded by green space which can be seen from almost every window.

The total investment programme, including construction of the new and demolishing of the old Alder Hey is £237m. A large proportion of the scheme will be funded by cash surpluses generated by Alder Hey and from the Trust's charity. Since Alder Hey became a Foundation Trust, this enabled it to set a longer term financial savings programme. This means that year on year, the cash surpluses generated are savings to invest in the new hospital, an achievement that would not have been possible if Alder Hey wasn’t a Foundation Trust. Alder Hey also has a fantastic charity which has consistently supported the hospital. The remaining borrowing for the scheme (£104m) will be funded through PFI.

During the event, the Acorn consortium (comprising John Laing, Laing O’Rourke and Interserve) will be formally announced as the Preferred Bidder for the new hospital project. The announcement follows approval of the project by the Department of Health and HM Treasury.

John Laing and Laing O’Rourke each hold 40% of the total investment equity in the project with Interserve holding 20%. Laing O’Rourke Construction will design and build the new hospital and Interserve will provide the hard facilities management services. The project is expected to achieve financial close in Winter 2012 and the official opening of the new hospital is planned for Summer 2015.

Speaking on behalf of Acorn, John Laing’s Director of Healthcare Projects, Peter Ward, said: “We’re delighted to be working with Alder Hey to develop the new hospital, giving the Trust’s staff and patients a hospital that matches the quality of their care. Its unique and instantly recognisable design will help promote Alder Hey’s care, teaching and research across the UK and internationally, and give children and their families the very best therapeutic environment.”

The new hospital will have a floor area of 60,000m2 and will have 270 beds, including 48 critical care beds for patients in ICU, HDU and Burns. There will be six standard wards with 32 beds. Each ward will have two four bed bays and 24 single rooms on each ward. That means the majority of children will have their own room with en-suite facilities, improving patient and family privacy and dignity. The unique design will also ensure that the majority of bedrooms have park views and patients will have easy access to play areas on and outside their ward. There will also be 16 operating theatres, four for day-case surgery and 12 inpatient theatres. The new development will also include a multi-storey car park with 1200 spaces, 200 more than the current site.

Programme Director David Powell explains: “Moving next door to Springfield Park will mean the building can blend into its surroundings and become a hospital in the park. There will be views of the park from most windows and every child will be able to see green space / nature from their room. The development will also give the local community a new and better park than what they have now. Along with much better facilities for our patients, there will also be better facilities for parents and families including more parents’ rooms, plenty of gardens and a 150 seat restaurant facility.”

Lead Architect for the project at BDP, Benedict Zucchi said; “Our design concept has not only captured the imagination of children, parents and staff but has also demonstrated itself as a flexible and effective approach, which has evolved through a significant number of user engagement meetings and allowed us to fine-tune the clinical layouts and optimise adjacencies to an unprecedented level.”

Chair of Alder Hey Sir David Henshaw said: “This is a huge moment in Alder Hey’s illustrious 100 year history. The new hospital will enable us to build and maintain our excellent reputation of care, improve the experience of patients and their families while placing us firmly on the world’s stage. This is a really exciting time for everyone connected to Alder Hey as together we look forward to an incredible future.”

BDP bags £237m Alder Hey hospital job

Link







A consortium, featuring BDP, has been selected to redevelop the Alder Hey Children’s Hospital in Liverpool

Plans for the 100-year-old hospital were formally unveiled yesterday when the winning Acorn consortium – principally comprising John Laing, Laing O’Rourke and Interserve – was named preferred bidder.

The new part PFI-funded hospital will be built in Springfield Park next door to the current site.

The existing Alder Hey hospital – which currently treats 275,000 patients a year – will then be demolished and transformed into a replacement green space.

The 60,000m² scheme will feature 270 beds and 16 operating theatres. A 1,200 multi-storey car park is also planned.

Alder Hey chief executive Louise Shepherd said the design was inspired by children: ‘We felt it was really important to design this hospital with the help of our children who have been involved throughout the development phase. They have helped our bidder to get the design right for children and young people.’

BDP lead architect for the project Benedict Zucchi said: ‘Our design concept has not only captured the imagination of children, parents and staff but has also demonstrated itself as a flexible and effective approach, which has evolved through a significant number of user engagement meetings and allowed us to fine-tune the clinical layouts and optimise adjacencies to an unprecedented level.’

The new hospital is planned to open for summer 2015.

Alder Hey’s stunning £240m rebuild plans will finally be given the green light this week

ALDER Hey’s stunning £240m rebuild plans will finally be given the green light tomorrow – seven years after the ECHO’s victorious campaign to keep the children’s hospital in Liverpool.

Work on the new “Children’s Health Park” could begin by the turn of the year if councillors follow advice to rubber-stamp the long-awaited proposals.

The 270-bed hospital will be rebuilt in neighbouring Springfield Park with the existing buildings gradually demolished and turned into replacement parkland.

Full planning permission to build the new complex is set to be granted by Liverpool’s council tomorrow.

Work begins on creating the new Alder Hey children’s hospital in the park

LIVERPOOL children’s hospital enters a new era today as work begins on the new Alder Hey in the Park.

Hoardings are going up around the site of the new hospital in West Derby in preparation for the new build which will see a modern hospital on neighbouring Springfield Park.

The plan is to take the current hospital and effectively turn it at a 90-degree angle, rebuilding it at a welcoming “treetop height”.

Its iconic design was inspired by a flower drawn by a former patient.

As part of the new build, the park will be redeveloped for use by the whole community.

Building work is scheduled to begin in early March. There will then be a phase of interim works on the site which will include relocating the park’s grade ll-listed Nelson’s Monument.

After the new hospital is built, the old one will be demolished and the site landscaped and developed to create a new park.

Alder Hey said they are committed to providing a better park in the future which both hospital patients and the public can enjoy.

Dave Houghton, Alder Hey in the Park Project Manager, said: “Our vision is to provide a neighbourhood park which can be enjoyed by both the local community and hospital users.

“We want to create a park that is safe, accessible to all, environmentally friendly and fits the needs of those living around it.”

The new park will include footpath routes, street furniture including seats and bins, informal football pitches, a multi-use games area and a play area.

The Nelson’s Monument will be moved but will still have a prominent position in the new park.

Liverpool City Council’s cabinet member for regeneration, Cllr Malcolm Kennedy, said today: “It is fantastic to see that plans are moving forward for the new Alder Hey Hospital.

“It is a much loved institution and this development will help make it a European leader in the treatment of young people.

“The preparation of Springfield Park for the start of work is the latest significant milestone in the delivery of this scheme.

“It will bring some short-term disruption but the long term benefits will be huge. ”

Alder Hey pushes the boundaries of hospital design

Plans for a new 'children's health park' at Alder Hey shows how hospital design can be both radical, economical and better for patients.
Quote:
But if plans are fully realised, the Alder Hey Children's Health Park could be the most iconic publicly-owned healthcare building in the UK when it opens in autumn 2015.

Building Begins on Groundbreaking New Hospital

Olympic Medal Winner and Dancing on Ice Winner Beth Tweddle joins Alder Hey on Landmark Day for Children’s Hospital

Tuesday 26th March 2013

A special event took place at Alder Hey Children’s Hospital today to mark a momentous day in its history, as building began on the new ‘Alder Hey in the Park’.

Work began to clear the site back in February 2013 and following financial close last week, the green light has now been given to start construction.

Chair of Alder Hey Sir David Henshaw said: “Today will be remembered as a hugely significant day in Alder Hey’s history. It is an incredible moment for everyone who has been involved in ensuring that after 100 years, Alder Hey has a long and exciting future ahead. Our iconic new building will be a fantastic facility for our patients, families and staff while providing us with the perfect platform for carrying out our work as one of the leading children’s hospitals in the world.”

Alder Hey Charity Patron and Olympic athlete Beth Tweddle joined patients, families, staff and well-wishers at a special groundbreaking ceremony on Springfield Park this afternoon.

There was also an extra special role for Emily Roberts, aged 10 who had the responsibility of being the first to ‘break ground’ on the site. Children and young people have played a key part throughout this project; 900 children gave their feedback on the new hospital in a consultation and the inspiration for the new building first came from a drawing by a former patient. A Children and Young People’s Design Group have also provided ongoing guidance and feedback to the architects throughout the process.

After the first spade broke ground, Beth and Emily started a clock inside the current hospital, counting down to the completion of Alder Hey in the Park in 2015.

Beth said: “I’m delighted to have been asked to come along and join the celebrations as building starts on the new hospital! This is such an exciting time for Alder Hey and as a Patron I am looking forward to working with the charity to help support the delivery of the vision for the new hospital!”

Built by the Acorn consortium (comprising John Laing, Laing O’Rourke and Interserve) the new Alder Hey is set to stand next door to the current site in Springfield Park. The new hospital, which has been designed with children and young people, will have 270 beds, including 48 critical care beds for patients in ICU, HDU and Burns. The majority of children and their families will have their own room with en-suite facilities and each ward will have its own kitchen providing freshly cooked food to order.

The unique design will also ensure that almost all bedrooms have park views and patients will have easy access to play areas on and outside their ward. There will also be 16 operating theatres, four for day-case surgery and 12 inpatient theatres. The new development will also include a multi-storey car park with 1200 spaces. The official opening of the new hospital is planned for Autumn 2015.

The new hospital will sit in the heart of Springfield Park, creating views of green space or parkland from every patient’s window. Once the new hospital is built, the old one will be demolished and the site landscaped and developed to create a new park.

Mayor of Liverpool Joe Anderson said: “This is a hugely exciting day for Liverpool . We have long looked forward to the development of this world class, 21st century hospital, and it’s fantastic that we can all now see the plans becoming a reality.

“The new Alder Hey will place our city at the forefront of the treatment of young people, providing the very best care for children and their families, within a beautiful green setting. I’m now looking forward to work progressing quickly, so this wonderful hospital can begin a new chapter in its history.”

Louise Shepherd, Chief Executive of Alder Hey said: “The ambitious vision for a new Alder Hey began over a decade ago. Today marks a massive achievement that is testimony to the hard work, perseverance and dedication of many people involved during that time. On behalf of everyone at Alder Hey, I would like to thank all those who have helped make this day possible. We can now all look forward to an exciting future!”

Here's a couple of quick updates on building work for the new Alder Hey off Twitter.

The site is being levelled for areas like car parking and physio, then up a level to the ground floor.



The Nelson monument has been removed from the park site for cleaning – it’ll be back gleaming in a couple of months



The final level up will have areas like Cardiology & ICU and includes space for a helipad!

Looking forward to seeing it built .....genuinely believe this could be one of the few post war iconic buildings in the city....especially when you consider hospiatals tend to be rather utilitarian in design.
