Coventry & Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust St Michael's Hospital, Hazelwood
Following the success of the completion of Rosewood Terrace, Willmott Dixon Interiors has revamped our second inpatient mental health rehabilitation unit at St Michael’s hospital, in Warwick, on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.
Hazelwood spans more than 6,000 sq ft and was delivered in six weeks. The facility provides services for up to 12 male inpatients and was in need of anti-ligature upgrades throughout.
The 6-week project was awarded via Procurement Hub Major Project Framework and delivered by a team including Fulkers Bailey Russell as Quantity Surveyor and Design Buro as principal designer.
Hazelwood was completed in September 2022 providing modern facilities for patients.
Anti-ligature works are an important step in keeping vulnerable people safe from accidentally or intentionally self-harming by deterring service users with purposely designed equipment.
Refurbishments were delivered in a live hospital environment and are:
- Fully compliant with latest NHS guidelines
- Designed with care and safety of service users in mind
The completed works at Hazelwood at St Michael’s Hospital in Warwick consisted of:
- Replacing fire doors and loft hatches.
- The installation of a new smoke detector system.
- All ventilation grilles and radiator covers have been updated.
- The building has been redecorated throughout.
At Willmott Dixon Interiors, sustainability is a core part of what we do. That’s why, we developed our sustainability strategy, Now or Never, which sets some ambitious targets for the buildings we refurbish.
We ensured that we used sustainable measures at St Michael’s Hospital in Warwick such as LED lighting, water isolation to maximise usage efficiency, loft insulation to align with the aims above.
Alongside the refurbishment of the hospital, our team volunteered to deliver services to local charity Zoe’s Place, which provides palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants. The charity’s sensory room in Easter Way was completely redecorated including:
- Removing the existing flooring and fitting brand new vinyl flooring as well as fitting a special type of skirting for infection prevention.
- Redecorating the walls and ceilings, including filling any previous holes made and a fresh coat of paint. The walls are used to project images for the children so they have been kept cream to allow for better projections.
