MTX is proud to have been awarded the £2million Design & Build contract to install a twin operating Theatre Suite for the Royal Wolverhampton Hospitals NHS Trust.
The Trust identified their requirement for additional theatre capacity after it experienced a large increase in workload, a rise which is expected to continue to increase over the next 5 years. To ensure their rapid building requirements were met, and in order to realize their investment more quickly, the Trust produced plans to redevelop their existing site using fast track modular building methods and MTX were invited to tender for the project earlier this year.
The new theatres, which are expected to be completed in the first week in April 2011, will be built using the latest modular construction methods and will feature a unique external finish made up of a galvanised steel composite panelling system as per the Trusts specification.
MTX are due to start on site in the first week in January 2011 with a programmed completion date of just 13 weeks later. Along with the Design & Build contract to supply the Trust with the additional theatres, which will take their total number of theatres to 12, MTX are also contracted to provide a separate recovery area along with undertaking significant Mechanical & Electrical infrastructure works as part of the sites redevelopment.
