The DC room at Northampton hospital is being built on a slope, for this reason, the engineering brick wall had to be built up to ensure a precise levelling of the concrete base was achieved. This also adds greater strength to the concrete base. Service entry ducts were positioned as required to bring services into the room via the concrete base.

In addition, radon was installed to remove any potential gases. Images here also show the ring beam that has been installed for added strength within the cavity of the two walls. Onwards and upwards!
