Presented with a different type of challenge, Thurston’s delivered a staged project providing three specialist modular ward facilities for Wythenshawe Hospital. The key client brief was to deliver a series of wards for Diabetes, Gastro and Maternity. Ultimately forming a one two storey, 4000 m2 facility in a short timeframe.
Modular construction was an important element for the client to minimise disruption to the day to day running of the hospital. The facility comprised 74 module bays, providing 105 bed spaces, various consultancy rooms and relevant auxiliary and support facilities. A partnering approach as principal contractor for this project helped develop the detailed specification within strict budgets.
Value was added by Thurston’s project and design team who worked closely with each client to ensure that deadlines were met and that the hospital building meets their exact needs and requirements. The team also made sure the facility met all building regulations.
“The wards that Thurston’s has constructed, containing 105 beds and a women’s health treatment unit, provide excellent accommodation for the Trust.” – John Berry, UHSM Estates Manager
“The unit will continue to provide extremely important services to our female patients. It’s evidence of the progress we’re making in our drive to expand services for women and children. I’d like to thank all the fantastic staff involved in making this happen.” – Joanne Robson, Manager of the Women and Children’s Service
