With the work taking place in a densely-populated part of the Principality, adjacent to the operating hospital, the contractor says it will build a dome over the initial earthmoving work, to reduce construction noise levels.

The structure of the dome will include 70 cables, each of 37m in length, over which will be erected 2,800m2 of sound-absorbing sheets, capable, says Vinci, of reducing noise by up to 12 decibels.

The scope of the contract includes the construction of a 16-storey building, with a 65,000m2 footprint, plus a six-level underground car park.

The four-year project will include the use of BIM across all works teams, and 85% of the concrete used will be Exegy low-carbon concrete, which promises to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by approximately 30%.
