We have recently been contracted by NHS Property Services Limited Derbyshire & Nottinghamshire to undertake repair works to the Physiotherapy Department roof at Babington Hospital in Belper, Derbyshire.
The North Lodge within the Eastern Courtyard at Babington Hospital is a Grade II Listed building originally designed as a workhouse for the Belper Union by Architect, Sir George Gilbert Scott. The building was designated with Grade II Listed status in 1979.
Constructed in Jacobean style, the significant historical features of the single storey stone lodge include the ornate slated roof, coped gables and light leaded window with millions.
The works comprised of:
• Removal of existing roof coverings
• Installation of breathable membrane
• Re-fixing the existing roof slate
Continuing use and occupation during works /
Babington Hospital is a live hospital environment delivering community therapy, day care services, health promotion, integrated children’s teams, musculoskeletal and patient rehabilitation.
It was a fundamental requirement of the contract to ensure that the Physiotherapy department remained fully operational throughout the duration of the project.
A sensitive and considerate approach to undertaking the works was required in order to provide minimal disruption and disturbance to the patients and staff of the hospital.
