Structural Defects at £335m Royal Liverpool Hospital

Three floors must be rebuilt at a stalled new hospital due to extremely complex structural defects left by Carillion, the construction company.

After Carillion’s collapse work was stopped at the already delayed new Royal Liverpool Hospital.

All in all of the 11 floors 2 will require work. It was due to open in March 2017 originally.

In order to avoid expectations the NHS Trust have refused to confirm a new completion date.

Repeatedly delayed

Originally expected to cost £335m the over 600 bed hospital has had repeated delays due to asbestos being found and major remedial building required.

This includes structural work such as strengthening beams, load reduction and putting in torsion supports.

Over 220 cubic metres of new concrete and 165 tonnes of new fabricated steelwork will be required.

Laing O’Rourke, the new contractor who also built Alder Hey Children’s Hospital and Liverpool One, said they will complete the project to a very high standard.

MP for Liverpool Riverside, Dame Louise Ellman, said: “Carillion’s calamitous collapse left Liverpool in the lurch.”

“It is deeply disappointing that the discovery of significant construction defects will result in further delay,” she added.

“The new Royal should have opened two years ago.

“It is vital for the necessary work to be completed as a matter of urgency, so that the people of Liverpool can have this much-needed new facility.”
