In order to support the NHS in Wales a temporary hospital setting was to be created at Bay Studios in Swansea Bay, which is home to a film studio and was formerly a Ford factory. The space, whilst vast at 11,000 sq m, needed to cater for 1,000 patients and required new infrastructure.
Working collaboratively with Swansea Council and TRJ on behalf of Swansea Bay University Health Board, it was agreed that the project would be split in to two phases of completion, so some beds could be ready within a month.
This was a unique concept amongst the field hospitals, as it required constructing a building within the studios and bolstering its infrastructure, including heating, electricity and water supplies. The operation went 24/7 in order to complete phase one, with up to 400 people on site.
More than 700km of cabling has been used, that would stretch from Swansea to Edinburgh, 12 football pitches could be covered with the insulation sheets that have been used and if the project’s silicone sealant was squeezed out, a person could climb up and down Mount Everest three times.
The first phase was completed within a month, providing 420 beds and phase two was handed over on 20 June. All works were completed in compliance with social distancing rules and in line with the Construction Leadership’s Site Operating Procedures.
Local supply chain partners were pivotal to the delivery of this new hospital and the wider community supported teams over the duration of the build.
The new field hospital in Swansea Bay Studios met its aim in providing additional capacity for Swansea and Neath Port Talbot should it be needed due to the pandemic. The facilities are similar to those of a traditional hospital setting for low level care needs, adapted for the particular needs of the pandemic.
There are ongoing discussions between Welsh Government and Swansea Bay University Health Board as to whether Bay Field Hospital will be used over the longer-term as part of the healthcare facilities available to the people of Swansea and potentially across the South Wales region. It is currently being used for testing education workers to support school reopening, and other options for its use are also being considered.
" I thank Kier and TRJ for their efforts in creating Bay Field Hospital. It took collaboration and co-operation to whole new levels. What was achieved was phenomenal and we couldn’t be prouder to partner both of them.” "leader of Swansea Council
