Willmott Dixon Interiors has commenced work on a second refurbishment project at Montagu Hospital in Mexborough, Doncaster.
Our team are reconfiguring and refurbishing more than 9,000 sq ft of space within the hospital’s endoscopy ward and rotunda building on behalf of Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. The £4.3 million project will provide new staff and patient facilities, a discharge lounge and recovery ward, and new consultant and ancillary rooms. There will also be a new reception and waiting area, staff room and toilets.
The project has already received an excellent Considerate Constructors Scheme score of 42 out of 45 which helps drive positive change within the construction industry, ensuring high standards are met throughout the projects.
As part of our achievement, the project team have already delivered activities which help benefit the local community and enhance the local environment, these include:
- Monthly health talks on site, provided by the Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust nursing team.
- Supporting the Daisy Meadows Community Garden which provides support for disabled gardening activities.
- The site team have recently taken part in the ‘Shaping Futures programme’ which aims to help local students to pursue a career in the construction industry.
The team are working in a live environment on a restricted and sensitive hospital campus. The relationship with the hospital staff at Doncaster and Bassetlaw Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust is therefore incredibly important and communication is key. This ensures that disruption is kept to a minimum and that there is minimal impact on the wider community.
