Adding a second floor at short notice
During the manufacture process, things changed.
We received a phone call from the NHS trust asking for a second floor to the building! This floor was to be a similar size to the ground floor and laid out as office space. The nature of modular construction means that this was not a problem.
Our team were flexible and we were able to deliver the shell of the ground floor as soon as it was ready. The second floor was then manufactured while the fit out for the ground floor was being carried out.The project managers decided to use existing contractors for the fit out. This benefitted the NHS trust in terms of cost savings because no sub-contracting was involved. It also allowed them to fast-track their specifications for the internal work.
We delivered the full outer shell for the new modular hospital ward in record time. The upper floor was fitted out in situ to create a modern and stylish workspace. There was also a canteen, bathroom facilities and meeting rooms installed in the upper floor. The new ward was then linked to the main hospital building for ease of access.
This project demonstrates how quickly and cost effectively a modular hospital building can be produced. For more information about working with your NHS trust, contact our team today.
