Modular Courtyard Installation

Modular operating theatres installed into complex sites

We specialise in delivering into complex locations, using off-site construction to allow us to utilise underused locations such as courtyards and rooftops.

The hospital courtyard installation of a twin temporary operating theatre in central London was a particularly challenging site that required extremely detailed planning to successfully complete.

With no vehicle access, traditional construction methods requiring lots of heavy vehicles on-site were ruled out as unsuitable for hospital courtyard installation. By manufacturing 80% of the modular operating theatres off-site in controlled factory conditions before craning it into place as 6 separate modules we were able to bypass these problems, delivering the facility with the minimum possible disruption to the hospital site.

The delivery was meticulously planned by our experienced project team to minimise the time craning was taking place on site, ensuring:

  • The smallest possible cost to the client - shorter crane hire
  • The least disruption to staff and patients
  • The biggest reduction in health and safety risks


With so many tall buildings surrounding the courtyard we were delivering into we had to crane the entire twin orthopaedic theatre over a large intervening 7-storey building.

Thanks to a dedicated, safety conscious delivery team and a well-organised Trust all modules were craned into place quickly and efficiently without compromising on health and safety.

In just 2 days the modular courtyard installation was complete, providing fast-track healthcare facilities at the very heart of the hospital's campus.
