Queen Elizabeth Hospital
Kings Lynn

Rossi Long Consulting have provided civil and structural engineering services on a wide range of projects, consistently providing a prompt and high quality service for the Hospital’s Estates Management Team. 

We have undertaken structural condition surveys, fire damage surveys, feasibility reports for development proposals and provided engineering designs for numerous capital works projects including remodeling, extensions and new-build schemes.  These include:

  • Courtyard infill for 2 storey A&E extension
  • Bariatric patient loading assessment (site-wide)
  • Courtyard infill for aseptic lab (single storey)
  • Courtyard infill for new MRI block (2 storey)
  • MacMillan department extension
  • Alterations at Fermoy unit (for Norfolk and Waveney Mental Health Trust)
  • Roof level plant-room upgrade feasibility
  • Data centre extension
  • Endoscopy wash alterations
  • Replacement roof-level chillers
  • Structural alterations to replacement tunnel wash units
  • Theatre upgrade feasibility study
  • First floor bay window replacement
  • Car parking feasibility
  • Ongoing works for A&E department expansion and re-modelling.

Through these projects, we have developed a thorough understanding of the standard format, pre-fabricated hospital structure, together with appreciation of the constraints and methods to add value to development projects such as adding plant to the roof by avoiding direct load to the roof slabs, specifying materials and construction methods which minimise disruption to the operation of the hospital, and understanding the methods for infilling courtyards to increase useable area. 

We have collected a wide range of details and designs specific to the hospital which allows us to progress future designs in an economic way using proven construction methods for the works to the existing structure.

Our knowledge of this hospital has been improved by our six-facet survey work at the James Paget Hospital which has a similar construction.
