Who would have expected at the beginning of the year that a few months later, we’d all be thrown into a strange new world of lockdowns, social distancing and home schooling? We’ve been working hard to keep our team safe, whilst continuing to work on a number of essential projects, so we thought we’d share a little update on the work we’ve been doing.
At the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH), we’ve been working on several projects including the new Interventional Radiology Unit (IRU) and Modular Wards schemes for MTX Contracts. We are carrying out plastering and suspended ceilings on the IRU project, and suspended and MF ceilings on the Modular Wards project.
We’ve also been working on a number of projects for Serco at the NNUH, including work on Theatre One refurbishment and the Nuclear Medicine upgrade project, as well as a quick fire job on the Jack Prior Ward. We’ve also been completing works on an upgrade to Radiology.
We will soon be starting on another project at the hospital, this time for R G Carter, on a link corridor for a new isolation unit. We are fitting out both the walls and ceilings in the new corridor and also supplying a large bulk of the materials that R G Carter were having trouble getting, thanks to our supplier, Encon.
At the James Paget Hospital in Gorleston, we are currently working on an upgrade of theatres six to eight for Morgan Sindall.
We have also been working on a job direct for the hospital, forming partitions and fitting ceilings in some new male and female staff showers, giving them much-needed extra facilities in the current climate.
Social distancing hasn’t been too much of a problem for our teams as of yet. Other contractors have furloughed their staff so there have been less people on site. The main challenges have been getting hold of the materials we need and getting them to site at the correct times. But our fantastic suppliers, CCF in Peterborough and Encon in Newmarket, have been a great help.
