Project Name: Lewisham Winter Pressures

Location: Lewisham & Greenwich NHS Trust, London

Value: £3,000,000

Principal Consultants: WT Partnership, Sweett Group, Wooster Jeffs Associates, Ansell & Bailey

Project Duration: 17 weeks

Procured on a two stage basis to assist with tight delivery timescales, this project involved the complete refurbishment of six wards within University Hospital Lewisham.

Works included new ceilings, walls, floors, M&E and associated systems. Works were phased to minimise bed loss and keep potential disruption to a minimum.

Shift work was utilised to maximise the available working time, this enabled us to refurbish the 1000m2 Maple Ward within eight and a half weeks.

This project demonstrated the benefits of collaborative working where the client, the consultants and the constructors shared early involvement and worked together to develop the specification, design and delivery of the new facilities within a very tight timescale.
