Project Story

Willmott Dixon Interiors completed the £2.7m reconfiguration of existing spaces within Conquest Hospital’s Emergency Department and Emergency Paediatrics Department. The project was appointed under the Procurement Hub Major Projects Framework.

The reconfigured space has delivered new clinical and non-clinical space and formed part of a wider strategy to care for Covid-19 positive inpatients. This includes providing the ability for the Trust to run a Red (Covid) and Green (non-Covid) route through the hospital to implement neighbouring Covid and non-Covid wards without cross contamination, increasing infection control.

The new design has reconfigured secondary underused waiting space to create a new clinical treatment cluster - including a separate paediatric treatment and waiting area - and increased the number of treatment spaces from 17 to 27.
Project Outcomes
  • Defect free handover
  • Completed within a live environment and a Covid-19 environment
  • Increased capacity from 17 to 27 treatment space
  • Provided separate routes for Covid-19 and non-covid patients
