Integrated property services and project delivery specialist Styles&Wood has completed a £1.7m refurbishment project at Barnsley Hospital.
The 44-week scheme included the complete demolition, strip-out and reconfiguration of the 500-bed south Yorkshire hospital’s Emergency Observation and Resuscitation wards.
Styles&Wood’s specialist health service team was appointed to handle the refurbishment following a competitive tender process, after demonstrating its expertise in working in live clinical environments.
The team worked alongside the Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust’s estates department to plan an appropriate schedule for works to take place while other wards were open and operational. This included implementing a specialist infection control system to ensure work areas were fully segregated, preventing the spread of dust and debris across the site.
Paul Lonsdale, operations director at Styles&Wood, said: “This is the second project which we’ve completed for Barnsley Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and working closely with their estates team, we’ve created an attractive environment for staff and patients in the most efficient and safe manner.”
“Our specialist team’s expertise in handling complex refurbishment projects in live clinical environments has helped healthcare projects command a growing share of the groups revenues.”
