In order to achieve the new forecasted capacities of the New Southmead Integrated community hospital, the redevelopment project has been flagged as a large project under the North Bristol NHS Trust. In detail, this redevelopment project entails a number of deliverables such as zoning six departments with respect to their use over time; acquisition of advanced technology medical equipments; development of 28 operating theater rooms; development of two multi-storey car parking lots; a number of far-reaching demolitions; and a suitable design for both the landscape orientation and the building design. The redevelopment project is anticipated to take five years after its commencement.
