Specialist / Bespoke Design

Curtis Moore relish a challenge and on many occasions, have been appointed by clients/architects and main contractors to come up with unique/bespoke solutions to a difficult project. When presented with such challenges, we will appoint a project team with a vast array of experience across estimating, design, planning and project delivery as well as involving our supply chain to come up with the best solution for the works. This at times can be a timely process however, ultimately, the project massively benefits in the long run.

A good example of such a project would be the Manchester Royal Infirmary Link Bridge which Curtis Moore completed in February 2021. The ground-breaking link bridge was designed to connect a new helipad landing site, erected on the roof of an adjacent car park, to the Emergency Departments in Manchester Royal Infirmary, Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital, Saint Mary’s Hospital and Manchester Royal Eye Hospital.
Stretching 130m in length and suspended 25m in the air, the link bridge is a lifeline to enable the transfer of critically ill patients who can now be airlifted directly to any of the four hospitals.
It took almost two years to design and plan the truly bespoke triangular rainscreen panel system required to match the complex geometry outlined by the architect. The latest 3D modelling techniques were also employed to design panels to fit around a pre-cambered steelwork structure. In addition to the design, this project came with its operational complexities being 25m above ground level, over the hospital wards and all during the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. Curtis Moore worked closely with the client throughout to ensure the success of this project which has gone on to win several industry awards.
