Southmead Hospital

The Brunel Building at Southmead Hospital, Bristol, has been extensively redeveloped to provide a modern and improved building with a large range of services as part of the North Bristol NHS Trust. Opened to the public in May 2014, the whole project is due to be completed in Autumn 2015.

What’s happening?

The £430m development at Southmead Hospital will include moving some departments such as A&E, Neurosciences and Major Burns Units from Frenchay Hospital as well as a state of the art Maternity & Neonatal Intensive Care Units. Alongside the new units, there will also be single en-suite bedrooms and private routes for patients before and after operations.

Why is it happening?

Increasing the efficiency as well as patient experience are the primary reasons for the development of Southmead Hospital. As well as reducing travel time between two sites, a great deal of learning has been taken from areas that work well in the hospital and areas that work less well to design a more sophisticated hospital. The experience of the patients has also been a core element to the design and development process.

What to expect

A super-hospital with colour coded design blocks to intuitively guide patients and visitors around the hospital.

What TDS did:

TDS Midlands has been responsible for the development of the impressive staircase at the heart of the hospital: This includes design of the glass balustrade with stainless steel handrails as well as link bridges spanning the length of the main atrium. Posts and base capping to the corridors were also part of the project.
