Spire Manchester is a new four-storey hospital for leading independent hospital group, Spire Healthcare, which replaces the existing Whalley Range facility. The Spire Manchester facility is a flag-ship hospital and provides a comprehensive range of healthcare accommodation that includes outpatient and inpatient facilities, an endoscopy unit, six operating theatres (including one hybrid theatre) and a conference suite, which will be used by both Spire staff and as an external resource for training and networking events for the wider healthcare sector.
DFC were appointed to provide a fire strategy for the building in order to demonstrate compliance with the Building Regulations. As with all hospital buildings, the fire strategy required close collaboration with all members of the design team to ensure that appropriate fire safety measures are incorporated within the building.
