Midland Lead supplied 2400 sqm of lead-lined boards with accompanying lead strips and battens for the construction project at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital. The boards were supplied in both plywood and plasterboard with lead shielding ranging from Code 3 through to Code 7, suitable for use across a range of diagnostic and interventional applications.
The Royal Liverpool Hospital is the first project to go through Midland Lead new quality management system which has been developed specifically when working with large construction sites. The staged process is designed to identify any logistical barriers at the early stages of the project. Packaging and delivery solutions are then tailor-made to fit the needs of the individual site.
Work to build the new £335m Royal Liverpool University Hospital began in spring 2014. The hospital, which is scheduled to open its doors to patients in 2017, will have 646 bedrooms extending across 23 wards together with 18 operating theatres. The 12 storey hospital is one of the new generation of hospital builds which sees an end to shared wards.
