Pinewood Structures was selected to deliver timber frame for this scheme which also formed part of a larger overall project for Lincolnshire NHS and Progress Housing Group. This project combined new build and refurbishment of accommodation for Pilgrim Hospital in Boston to create 336 new bed spaces.

Phase 1 comprised of 12 three bed houses, 15 one bed and 9 two bed apartments and the program required that existing residents had to be relocated to the new buildings prior to demolition of the existing blocks. Second and third phases comprised of a further 267 bedrooms in the form of cluster flats.

Timber frame was selected as it offered a fast construction program that enabled the hospital to operate fully with no interruption.

Critical requirements met by constructing in timber frame:

  • 30% quicker build time than traditional methods of construction.
  • Brick work removed from critical path to enable works to proceed internally sooner.
  • Non weather dependant, making program planning and delivery highly predictable.
  • Reduced energy costs through reduced drying out times.
