Pozzoni reveals plans for new Manchester hospital

  • Comment

Pozzoni Architecture has submitted plans for a new Manchester hospital for not-for-profit health organisation Nuffield Health

The project comprises a 12,200m² building located on a two hectare acre site adjacent to the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

The plans provide 30 consultation rooms, 60 patient en-suite bedrooms, eight critical care beds, six operating theatres, and a diagnostic imaging suite spread across three floors.

A rehabilitation gym with physiotherapy will also be provided within a ‘wellbeing centre’ located at the heart of the building, as well as 200 parking spaces.

Nigel Saunders, director at Pozzoni Architecture, said: ‘The scheme has been designed to respond sensitively to the site, having operating theatres to the main road frontages, with bedrooms and consultation rooms configured to overlook a leafy landscape setting within a conservation area.

‘The landscape outlook is designed to enhance patient experience, recovery and wellbeing. Internally, the building is organised around a dramatic four storey atrium hub, uniting the clinical, wellbeing and academy functions into a truly integrated facility.’

Demolition and remediation work has already been completed, and if planning is granted, construction will begin next year with opening scheduled for 2018.

Another Pozzoni scheme for Nuffield Health in Manchester – a 767m² diagnostic suite – is set to open in January.
