Cherry Ward

Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital

The Cherry Ward project involved the construction of a new dedicated entrance extension with reception area and day visitor space in conjunction with a ward upgrade and remodelling to provide a new 10 bed en-suite facility comprising four additional critical care beds and six ward/surgical beds.

Each ‘city themed’ bedroom has its own smart TV and X-Box with low level motion sensor LED strip lighting to aid with patient movement in the night.

Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital (LHCH) is a single site centre providing specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine, including cystic fibrosis and diagnostic imaging. The hospital treats multiple strains of Cystic Fibrosis that must remain separated to avoid cross contamination.

External treatment of the extension includes an extruded aluminium plank rainscreen cladding; etched with the name of the building.

As part of the design theme used throughout the hospital estate on future projects, a bespoke hardwood timber cladding was specified for the new entrance which incorporates a green roof. By using our in-house joinery division for this work, we were able to purchase, manufacture and install the cladding more cost effectively. Local apprentices from our joinery division were utilised on the project along with subcontractors and suppliers from the local area.
