120 tonnes

Circa 120 tonnes of processed steel was recently supplied by AJN for the construction of a new £87 million state-of-the-art surgical centre at Musgrove Park Hospital in Somerset.

A range of universal beams, columns, channels and angles are being used to radically transform the hospital’s estate, replacing the current hospital theatres and critical care unit.

The current site, built during World War Two as part of a temporary casualty evacuation hospital for the D-Day landings, will be transformed to house six endoscopy rooms, patient recovery and clinical support areas, eight operating theatres and 22 critical care beds.

Due for completion in summer 2025, Colin Drummond, chairman of the Somerset NHS Foundation Trust said, “It will make a huge difference to the service we can offer and the experience of our patients.” Rebecca Pow, the MP for Taunton Deane, also comments on the “enormous benefit for the people, not just of Taunton Deane, but also the whole of Somerset”.

We’re delighted to have played a part in this impressive project and look forward to seeing it once complete.
