Tilbury Douglas, a leading UK building, infrastructure, engineering and fitout company, has successfully completed the refurbishment of theatres five and six at Walsall Manor Hospital on behalf of the Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust.
After the Trust identified the need for the trauma theatres to be upgraded, as part of its winter pressures works due to the Covid-19 pandemic. This required a full strip-out and refurbishment of both spaces to create two ultra-clean theatres. Tilbury Douglas delivered the construction works efficiently whilst ensuring one of the theatres remained functional throughout in order to treat patients.
Colin Plant, Project Director for Walsall Healthcare, said: “The refurbishment of the theatres, including the provision of new ultra clean ventilation systems, has been delivered to a high standard - providing value for money and completed according to the programme. Tilbury Douglas’ efforts have bought a facility and equipment, which was well beyond its normal life expectancy, up to modern standards – and provided a top class environment for patients and staff alike.”
Richard Myatt, Contracts Manager of Building – Midlands at Tilbury Douglas, commented: “Due to our extensive experience with Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust, we were able to complete these works on time without impacting the live hospital environment. Our work at Walsall Manor continues with the major development of Walsall Manor Emergency Department, which we look forward to handing over later this year.”
The project was delivered in partnership with Tilbury Douglas Engineering.
