Shropshire Women and Children's Centre Officially Opens

27th October 2014

The new £28million Shropshire Women and Children’s Centre at the Princess Royal Hospital (PRH) in Telford has officially opened.

Capita provided civil, structural and mechanical and electrical engineering services on the Balfour Beatty element of the project which is part of The Shrewsbury and Telford Hospital NHS Trust’s £35m refurbishment of both the Princess Royal and Royal Shrewsbury hospitals.

The centre, which can cater for up to 135 inpatients, comprises children’s inpatients; children’s oncology and haematology; gynaecology inpatients; emergencies; procedures and Early Pregnancy Assessment Service (EPAS), and Consultant Led Maternity Services.

The structural solution is a steel frame with composite metal deck and concrete slabs with the key challenge being dealing with the requirements for very rigid and inflexible floorplates in sensitive areas such as the operating theatres.
