Integrated property services and project delivery specialist Styles&Wood has completed a £1.2 million clinical refurbishment scheme to create a new specialist women’s healthcare facility at Chesterfield Royal Hospital in Derbyshire.
The 21-week project involved the complete strip-out and remodelling of the hospital’s Women’s Health Unit and Trinity Ward, to bring its gynaecology services together in one modern high quality facility.
Styles&Wood’s specialist health service team – which has extensive experience operating in working hospital environments – was appointed following a competitive tender process. The team employed special infection control partitions and technology designed to help prevent the spread of dust and debris, to enable work to be carried out around live clinical services.
The project included the identification and removal of asbestos, the installation of new M&E services and saw the two wards transformed with a modern, high quality finish providing new reception, triage and treatment areas as well as individual 5-bed wards and secondary service rooms.
Richard Hall, Account Principal from Styles&Wood, said: “We’ve created an attractive, secure and efficient space with a very high quality finish which will significantly enhance the excellent patient care delivered by the team at Chesterfield.”
“The health sector is a key strategic market for Styles&Wood. Delivering complex schemes around live clinical services presents specific challenges. The solid in-house expertise we’ve developed in this field is seeing health projects account for a growing share of the group’s revenues, climbing five per cent in the past 12 months alone.”
The project is the second which the Altrincham-headquartered business has successfully completed for Chesterfield Royal Hospital NHS Foundation Trust (CRH), after being appointed to design and deliver a new entrance to the hospital following a devastating fire in 2011.
