Highwoods Hospital – Linden Homes

Linden Homes purchased a former hospital site with the intention of refurbishing the existing buildings and constructing new houses in keeping with the original designs.

Linden Homes purchased a former hospital site with the intention of refurbishing the existing buildings and constructing new houses in keeping with the original designs

Due to some land deal amendments the previously available electrical supply from a new substation on the adjacent site was no longer available. A new substation had been incorporated within the design deep into the site on a future phase requiring extensive HV cabling into the scheme before any power would be available.

The programme required a new electrical and gas network within 12 weeks for the first phase of houses to be released.

There was existing gas and electricity mains running through the site and there was a need to maintain the existing roads throughout and install new services in narrow service margins.

Our solution.

TriConnex quickly carried out a gas design sufficient for the scheme as a whole, which meant that legal phasing was not required. By working closely with our client’s construction team, we were able to devise a joint programme which efficiently allowed the entire networks to be laid across the entire site, and prevented a dis-jointed approach to services with the ground worker on site.

The results.

By removing the need for a substation, TriConnex saved the client in excess of £70,000 or the equivalent of £2,300 per plot as well as the loss of developable land, the aesthetic impact and the effect on sales revenues for the adjacent plots.

Identifying the water connection point early within the build programme allowed the works to be sequenced in with other highway works as well as locking down the new water network costs and removing the risks of significant off site works.

Design stage

The next stage is to translate the agreed technical solution into a buildable reality. The focus is on the intricate detail here and all relevant third party stakeholders are contacted with this in mind. Importantly safety risks are clarified at this stage and relevant risk assessments carried out where required.

Technical stage

The next stage in your journey, or perhaps the first if the project is ready to go, is to more thoroughly assess the deliverability of the project, bearing in mind your detailed build and programme requirements.
