Pacy and Wheatley Construction are delighted to be appointed, by our repeat client Cygnet Healthcare, an exciting design and build project within the healthcare sector in London. The programme was developed in conjunction with our client’s team to ensure minimal disruption, and with consideration to our clients business plan to provide 18 additional beds, day spaces, specialist care and staff areas.
The works consist of various extensions to match the existing building facades and a series of phased refurbishments across multiple areas of the hospital. Refurbished areas have been taken back to a masonry shell and the works will include a complete overhaul of the mechanical and engineering installations. New robust specialist doors and furniture, along with bespoke anti-ligature window systems are also to be installed.
Site constraints and location offer up a number of difficulties, due to the tight access, limited parking and construction activities required to facilitate the works. The hospital is to remain live throughout the build programme with access for all staff, visitors and medical professionals.
Careful consideration has been taken to design detailing, and co-ordination with the planning authority is key to the success of integrating the new extensions with the existing hospital.
