Construction Update - August 2015

Construction UpdateIn August the new Papworth Hospital site will get busier, with, on average, 12 trucks each day bringing in concrete and equipment as the frame of the building starts to go up. The deliveries will take place at times which have been selected to avoid impacting/compounding local traffic congestion.

No weekend work is planned for August on the hospital site either, so it will be a quiet time around the local area.

Looking to open its doors in Spring 2018, Papworth Hospital launched its 1,000 day countdown to the opening of new Papworth Hospital on Friday 24 July with a countdown clock on site as well as a virtual clock on this website.

This site contains all the latest information on the new hospital including the opportunity to keep a close eye on progress on construction with a link to a time lapse camera on site.

On the construction site ground-source heat pumps are now starting to be installed and they will reduce the need for the hospital to use energy from the grid to heat and cool the building.

Thanks to all of our neighbours for their understanding during this construction period. If you have any comments or questions, please email newpapworth@papworth.nhs.uk or call 01480 364908.
