First phase of hospital refurb completes

Work has been completed on the first phase of a project to refurbish St. Michael’s Hospital in Warwick.

Willmott Dixon Interiors has revamped Rosewood Terrace, an inpatient mental health rehabilitation unit, on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.

The 13-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.

St. Michael’s Hospital was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1996.

A purpose-built facility, it provides age independent inpatient mental healthcare and comprises several inpatient wards and outpatient clinics.

They include Hazelwood, Ferndale, Rowan, Larches and Willowvale which will all be refurbished by Willmott Dixon Interiors during the second phase of the project which starts this month.

Phil Crowther, regional director of Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We’re really pleased to have delivered the first part of a much broader project to refurbish facilities at St. Michael’s Hospital. It will significantly upgrade each hospital ward to modern standards, providing a much improved environment for both patients and NHS staff.”

Andrew Peck, client relationship manager at Procurement Hub said: “This is another fantastic project working with one of our NHS members, delivering through Procurement Hub Major Project Framework. Working with Willmott Dixon Interiors, the solution has provided a compliant and flexible route to market for the customer. We all look forward to the benefits this will bring to the trust in the future.”
