Hull Royal Infirmary Tower Facade Repairs & Encapsulation

Hull Royal Infirmary Tower Facelift

Major facelift completed for Hull Royal Infirmary.

Houlton successfully completed the encapsulation works to improve the look of Hull’s tallest building and make it more energy efficient, with £3.04m of work proceeding on the south, west and east elevations of the tower block on Anlaby Road, Hull. A further £2.17m phase was awarded under the YORbuild framework for similar work to the north elevation but including preparatory concrete repairs this time, which totaled 15,700m² for the full scheme.

Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust invested over £8 million in total to provide new windows and an external façade for its 160ft tower block on the Hull Royal Infirmary site. The work has also made it structurally safer and improved its overall appearance. The tower block now boasts a sleek dark grey finish with blue glass and a complementary lighting scheme.

Duncan Taylor, Deputy Director of Infrastructure and Development said:
“As well as the obvious improvement to the building’s exterior, the work which is underway will help to improve the tower block’s energy efficiency by about 55% which is a massive amount when you consider it is 13 floors high. What’s more, the new façade and glass will help to make all of the wards and departments more comfortable by better regulating the temperatures inside the building and thereby creating a better environment for our patients, visitors and staff. We’re very excited about this project and trust that patients and staff alike will consider the finished article a real visual improvement.”

As well as providing the building with a much needed facelift, the works have also provided the local economy with a boost, with over 90% local labour employed by Houlton on site and all 13,800m² of the new glass and window curtain walling being produced and installed by a local firm in Hull as well as the installation of 2,000m² of insulated wall sheeting to the two gables.
