Willmott Dixon Interiors has completed the latest phase of a project to modernise a mental health care facility in Warwickshire.
Works were carried out in a live hospital environment and consisted of the installation of new windows and internal doors to all wards and adaptations to power, data and access control services.
Improvements have been made to lighting, ventilation grilles, radiator covers and sanitaryware, while flooring has also been cleaned and repaired. All four buildings have been decorated throughout.
In addition, Willmott Dixon Interiors has presented NHS staff with new board games, jigsaw puzzles and a cheque for £1,000 which was raised by its site team during completion of the works.
The refurbishment of the four units is the latest phase of a wider project, awarded via Procurement Hub Major Project Framework, to upgrade several inpatient wards and outpatient clinics at St. Michael’s Hospital.
Phase one saw the refurbishment of Rosewood Terrace, an inpatient mental health rehabilitation unit, in early 2022. Works will shortly commence at Ferndale Ward, which is scheduled to complete in August 2023, with the final phase of the project being the refurbishment of Larches Ward which is due to be handed over early next year.
Phil Crowther, director at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “Our refurbishment of St. Michael’s Hospital has delivered a modern health care environment and improved experience for patients and staff alike. Anti-ligature work is highly specialised and very different from a traditional refurbishment. All works were designed with patient care and safety in mind and delivered by a highly experienced team. We are hugely grateful for the cooperation of staff at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust who have enabled us to complete this phase of the project quickly and with minimal disruption.”
Andrew Peck, Client Relationship Manager at Procurement Hub said: “We are delighted to have provided a compliant route to market for Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust. The framework provides clarity and transparency for our members. The early engagement benefits Procurement Hub members through the scope of a contract, saving time and money through the process”
