Dortech Maintenance has been contracted to assist main contractors, Willmott Dixon in developing and implementing a solution to join two areas of Pinderfields Hospital together. The works, located in Wakefield, included the design, manufacture and installation of a bespoke link bridge, over a internal, open courtyard.

Dortechs works included the removal of glazing and manipulation of the existing curtain walling to accept a steel structured link bridge. Heavy plant and lifting equipment was used to lift and install the new bridge. Special detail was then applied to the interfacing and water-sealing of the new bridge with the existing building fa├žade. High performance. thermally broken aluminium windows and entrance doors were incorporated into the design.
