Soria Hospital

Description of the Environmental Measure

Problem detected:

When undertaking the extension and refurbishment of Soria Hospital in Spain, the company has been able to keep the hospital open throughout the works.

Solutions adopted:

The measures implemented to avoid disrupting hospital services were divided into two stages:

PHASE 1

  • Preliminary preparatory tasks, diverting the existing sanitation system, building a provisional car park and preparing a provisional entrance to the hospital.

PHASE 2

  • Beginning of demolition and construction works at different stages and in different hospital blocks.

In the specific case of the demolition of the 33-metrehigh chimney of the old power station on the site of the current hospital site, it was noted that bringing it down would interfere with hospital’s activities. 

Results:

To minimise the interruptions to services, the work was done on a Saturday, outside the hospital’s hours for outpatients, and the necessary protective measures were implemented to minimise the impact on third parties.
