Driffield firm completes work on £1.7m 'Captain Tom' building at London hospital
A Yorkshire construction specialist has announced that it has completed work on a London hospital building worth £1.7m.
Premier Modular, an offsite construction company based in Driffield, has delivered a purpose-designed £1.7m ward building at North Middlesex University Hospital in London, completing the project in six months.
The ward is part of the hospital and trust’s plans to expand capacity to restart elective care services following the impact of coronavirus.
Named the Captain Sir Tom Moore Centenary Ward, the building has been designed to maximise clinical space in line with the latest Covid-19 infection control requirements.
It accommodates 20 beds for patients recovering from surgery and has been configured as six 3-bed wards and one 2-bed ward.
Chris Kelly, estates development manager at North Middlesex University Hospital, commented: “The Premier team understood the vital importance and urgency of this project from the outset and as a result worked harder and faster to make it happen.
“There was incredible pressure to deliver this building to such a short programme.
“Premier grasped our mindset as healthcare providers and the real world impact this building would have on our patients waiting for treatment.
“Despite the pressures, the Premier project team was constantly collaborative, flexible and worked as a genuine partner to the trust.”
“Design choices had to be made in the context of budget, programme, and the incredibly fast changing healthcare environment.
“This demanded an exceptional understanding of the issues and the technicalities of compliance to rapidly developing Covid guidelines for infection control.
“Their team’s positive approach, practical support, attention to detail, communication, focus and enthusiasm to get the job done were remarkable and enormously appreciated.”
