Allam Medical Building, University of Hull

The Allam Medical Building is the stunning centrepiece of the University of Hull’s health campus, home to the Hull York Medical School.

Allam Medical Building, University of HullThe stunning new five storey Allam Medical Building is home to the University of Hull’s Faculty of Health Sciences and Hull York Medical School; providing specialist health care training facilities including a full mock hospital ward, operating theatre and intensive care nursing facilities. There is a large lecture theatre with a fully flexible layout and collaborative working areas for researchers and students, as well as fully equipped meeting rooms.

The concrete framed building features innovative precast concrete cladding panels which provide the stunning façade of the new building. Targeting BREEAM Very Good the new building also incorporated sustainable design elements such as green roofs.

The BIM model was used for the coordination of the concrete frame, steelwork and precast concrete panels. These interfaces had to be exact as changes would be difficult and extremely costly to rectify afterwards. Where clashes were highlighted, amendments were made to the design in a staged process. This meant changing each aspect of the design and updating the model before looking at the next aspect, so new clashes weren’t created by changes, starting with the biggest systems/areas first.

Early use of modelling allowed the University to visualise the finished building, giving them confidence about the choices they were making. The model was used to demonstrate to project funders what the final building would look like, helping to secure vital funding.

The Allam Medical Building has been designed to attract and develop students and staff who will shape the healthcare workforce of the future.

The investment in the health campus underlines the University of Hull and Hull York Medical School’s commitment to improving the health of people in the region and beyond. It is supported by a £7-million donation from East Yorkshire businessman and honorary graduate of the University, Dr Assem Allam, alongside other key donors.

The new building was opened by Her Majesty The Queen in November 2017.
