King’s Mill Hospital, Nottinghamshire
Kingsmill Hospital, Nottinghamshire
Building works, refurbishment and ongoing maintenance
In 2012 we began working at this hospital, which has a busy emergency department, maternity department, inpatient facilities, clinics and therapy services and many other facilities. Our first task was to refurbish the paediatric department, which involved building new internal walls, floors and ceilings. We also built a new four-storey link bridge to connect the new hospital towers to the older retained estates. This bridge was central to the hospital and cut across a main, busy corridor that was heavily in use during the day. As a result, we carried out some work out of hours.
The main challenge of working on hospital projects is that the buildings are in use 24/7. We have vast experience of using our strong communication skills and flexible and adaptable project management abilities to ensure that we hit our deadline, our budget and do not disrupt the vital work at the hospital.
We continue to work closely with hospital consultants and our client, the multinational construction and development company Skanska on a range of refurbishments. We have redeveloped the old boiler house to make a new archive store. We have created new mezzanine floors. We have worked in the primary care area, stripping out internal walls, creating a new configuration and building doors.
Bailey Construction’s minor works division has undertaken projects across this large hospital site and continues to provide an ongoing maintenance service. Some of our work has been on the main route to the hospital’s busy emergency department, which calls for great sensitivity, robust safety processes and consideration and care by our team.
