Cara to build the Masonry on the new £68m Salford Trauma Hospital

BAM have awarded Cara Brickwork the masonry package contract to carry out the masonry works on the 105,000 sq ft James Potter Building which is part of the Salford Royal hospital.

The six-storey centre is intended to support Salford Royal’s role as the major trauma centre for Greater Manchester. It will feature a resuscitation area, five emergency theatres, inpatient beds, diagnostic imaging and a helipad.

Once complete, the specialist facility is expected to receive 90% of all major trauma patients in Greater Manchester, for example, people who have been involved in a serious road traffic accident or serious fall. It will also be the hub site for high-risk general surgery across Bolton, Salford and Wigan.

Day Architectural has led on the design of the project. The scheme is targeted to complete in summer 2023.

Masonry works have started on site today for a duration of 10 weeks.
