First phase of Bay Field Hospital completed amid Covid-19 pandemic

The construction works on the first phase of Bay Field Hospital at Bay Studios in Fabian Way have completed with 420 beds ready to use.

The construction works on the first phase of Bay Field Hospital at Bay Studios in Fabian Way have completed with 420 beds ready to use.

These initial phases have been handed over to Swansea Bay University Health Board (SBUHB) in the UK and now available to support the Covid-19 efforts carried out by the NHS.

The new hospital was constructed by Kier and its supply chain, alongside TRJ. They were appointed by Swansea Council on behalf of SBUHB.

The construction of the Bay Field Hospital began earlier last month in response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Kier noted that its teams were working 24/7 to construct the new building and install infrastructure, including bolstering heating, electricity and water supplies.

The subsequent phases of the project will deliver 540 beds. The construction is expected to be completed by the end of next month.

Kier Regional Building Western & Wales operations director Jason Taylor: “We are extremely proud to have been a part of the team that has delivered the first phases of this vital local facility. It has been a truly collaborative effort, working with Swansea Council, our supply chain, partner TRJ and others for SBUHB, this new hospital setting is now ready to help support the NHS in its fight against Covid-19.”

Swansea Council leader Rob Stewart said: “Only four weeks ago Bay Studios looked like what it was, a linked series of huge drafty factory units dating back around 70 years.

“We’re all proud to have done our bit to deliver an exceptional new space for the NHS to support them in their efforts to save lives. This is partnership working at its very best.”
