David Bolton

David’s blend of construction and engineering skills placed him in a strong technical competency to deliver the extremely challenging building at Altnagelvin Acute Hospital North Wing. With live interfaces surrounding the entire build, a blue light route to the south of the site and the new challenges of a pandemic, David provided innovative techniques which saved our client money, reduced the carbon footprint of the build and delivered a number of wards ahead of schedule to support the NHS planning for Covid emergencies.
