BAM has completed the roof of the new, state-of-the-art Pathology Laboratory at Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT), marking another significant milestone in the delivery of the project which is set to support improvements in diagnostic testing across the region.
A topping out ceremony was held last week marking the milestone with key stakeholders by signing the concrete stair core of the building.
Representatives from BAM, Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust and other stakeholders came together to celebrate the completion of the highest point of the build.
Footage captured by the Trust’s time-lapse camera shows the roof structure being completed and covering the lift and stair cores. BAM has made significant progress on the laboratory in the past few weeks, with the first windows of the building now installed.
Based at St James’s Hospital, the new facility will be part of the West Yorkshire and Harrogate Pathology Network, formed through the collaboration with the West Yorkshire Association of Acute Trusts (WYAAT) and will support the delivery of pathology services across West Yorkshire and Harrogate.
As well as supporting improvements in diagnosis for people across the region, the new laboratory will help to meet the growing regional demand for specialist treatment and care.
