MTX to construct a multi-million pound ward project to Leicester’s Glenfield Hospital providing 52 acute beds and a 12 bed renal ward.

Following a demanding and fast-track pre-construction stage, MTX have been awarded a multi-million pound project to construct modular wards at Glenfield Hospital.

Modular ward accommodation project

The University Hospitals of Leicester NHS have a requirement to develop their existing site to create a new renal ward department at Glenfield Hospital. This work is integral to the trusts wider plans to further develop the City’s hospitals.

Offsite bespoke construction

MTX will provide a bespoke off-site solution which will be sited on top of the current hospital. To facilitate access two passenger lifts will be provided to transport patients from the existing hospital street to the new roof top facility. The new scheme will incorporate a 12 bed Renal Transplant Unit (RTU) and Hepato Pancreto Bilary Wards (HPB). The HPB will consist of a 24 bed Emergency Admissions Unit (EAU) and a 28 bed Elective Care Unit (ECU). It will also encompass a Nurse Base serving each ward, toilets, patient shower rooms, ancillary accommodation, an escape staircase serving each ward and 2 plantrooms equipped with specialist R.O Plant; necessary for patients receiving dialysis. An existing Estates Workshop on the ground floor was identified to be refurbished to house the R.O pipework.

MTX are working in conjunction with their architectural partners IBI Group, consulting engineers DSSR and structural engineers Rossi Long to design a facility that will utilise the maximum space available on such a busy and condensed site. Enabling works have commenced onsite and practical completion is due early 2020.

MTX have recently completed works at the Royal Bolton Hospital providing additional accommodation to their existing accident and emergency department.

Modular A&E Extension

Due to the ever increasing demands on Hospital A&E departments, MTX continue to see a big interest in this type of facility and Royal Bolton Hospital has been no exception to this increasing trend.

Fast Track Modular Construction

Works began in November 2018 with the production of 7No volumetric modules which were quickly progressed through one of our quality controlled factories. Once these were delivered to site they were installed in just 1 day, providing a single storey modular solution and sticking to the tight programme timescale.

The 225m² accident and emergency extension incorporates 7minor treatment rooms, a waiting area, reception desk, staff offices and toilets. Internally it has been finished to a very high standard and utilises the latest in healthcare technology and equipment.

To satisfy this demanding programme and to ensure the finishes were completed as quickly as possible,MTX installed brick slips for the external elevational treatment. The external rooftop, which is the location for the plant, is screened by a functional brie solei louvres which also enhance the architectural appearance of the building.

The new building accepted its first patients late in February 2019.

Modular Construction in London

Guys Hospital had a requirement for a new additional orthopaedic theatre and associated 4 bed recovery suite in order to allow for a greater patient intake. The new modular facility was delivered on 12th October 2018 and built onto a transfer deck at level 1 adjacent to the existing theatre department.

Modular Night Lift

The modular lift had to take place out of hours due to the busy and congested streets of London and the 24 hour nature of the hospital. To overcome this matter MTX hired 2 Site Teams to take it in turns to work 12 hour shifts throughout the night to oversee the install period. A road closure was put in place from 7pm on the Friday night and ran through to 9am the following Monday morning, therefore the MTX Teams had to work to a tight deadline to ensure all modules were safely in place before the roads were reopened.

Modular Theatre to be Delivered 2019

All first fix M&E has now been installed, all new plant has been fitted in the plantroom and the first coat of decorations have been applied. Works are on track to continue in the New Year with final fixes and finishes throughout January. Final commissioning throughout the month of February before official handover in March 2019.

In September 2018 MTX were successfully awarded the contract to provide Royal Bolton Hospital with a new build modular Urology Department.

Working for iFM Bolton, MTX have designed and manufactured a single storey external standalone modular facility, to house an operating theatre, ancillary areas, 4 bed recovery, consulting rooms, reception, waiting area, toilets and offices.

To take advantage of offsite modular construction and to achieve full HTM response factor compliance our groundworks solution was designed using both pad foundations to accommodate modules installed with cement particle board flooring and a concrete slab foundation to accept floorless modules within the operating theatre area.

MTX deliver a new Modular Urology Department

The building was installed during the first week of November over a 4 day period and comprises 27 modules providing an overall 900m² of space. The modules were installed with our Isoclad cladding system already completed within the factory leaving only bay joints to be completed on site.  The new facility is connected to the existing hospital circulation corridors via a modular link way. It is located on an old car park at the rear of the hospital, by the existing maternity unit.

MTX are currently working with our supply chain on the internal fit out of the development including completion of 1st fix M&E installation along with finishes. The partitions within the building were again completed within the factory with the majority of the partitions being a pre-finished system. Programme is on target and scheduled to be completed including full commissioning in February 2019.

In January 2018, MTX were successfully awarded the contract to provide a new modular Twin Theatre project to Wrexham Maelor Hospital in North Wales.

Founded in 1826, Wrexham Maelor Hospital houses 981 beds and has a catchment area of over half a million citizens. Before the amalgamation of North Wales Trusts in 2010, it was home to the North East Wales NHS Trust.

The Requirements

Betsi Cadwaladwr University Healthboard required additional theatre capacity to Wrexham Maelor Hospital. The old theatre facility was in urgent need of modernisation. Further to the new theatre facility the Trust also identified that an additional Endoscope Procedure Room was required.

The Solution

Our Design Team, working in collaboration with the Trust, produced a new modular 2 storey scheme linked to the main hospital street corridor.

The bespoke external building is positioned on pad foundations designed to suit the ground conditions. The new construction has two floor types, timber and concrete floors complying with Health Technical Memoranda.

The ground floor is made up of 31 modules providing 751m² of space. It comprises of two Operating Theatres, Endoscope Procedure Room with Admission Room, 2nr Recovery Wards, Anaesthetic Room, Nurse Base, Staff Room, Scrub Up, Prep Room, Staff Shower Rooms, Toilets, Waiting Area, Changing Rooms and Endoscope Cleaning and Drying Rooms. The top floor is dedicated to house the 2 plantrooms; 1 serving the Endoscope and Recovery areas and the other serving the Operating Theatres.

The internal design and colour scheme was chosen based on previous MTX Endoscopy projects and the hospital’s current decor. The Trust were impressed with the fresh and modern finish on the MTX projects, however were keen to keep in line with their existing trend, therefore a mixture of the two was decided. The Surgeon Panels, IPS and UPS are all provided by Bender UK and Dextra provided the eco-friendly LED lighting, used throughout the whole project.

Main Considerations

Whilst putting this project out to tender, the Trust had to hire mobile Operating Theatres in the interim in order to pacify the ongoing patient demand. These were in place since winter 2017 and consequently MTX were working to a strict programme timescale to ensure that the mobile units were onsite for as little time as possible.

Capital cost was also a key consideration for this scheme. Following a number of value engineering options, ranging from external finishes to mechanical engineering solutions, offered by our team and accepted by the Trust, we were able to meet their budget.

The design and procurement process was critical with a challenging onsite construction period ahead. During the site survey, it was realised that the route included a weak bridge which the wagons were unable to cross. Therefore the team had to determine alternative temporary access which involved removing part of metal fencing bordering an adjacent supermarket car park and closing this area off to the public. The wagons were then able to access the site via the supermarket car park and through the opened fencing. Once the modules were all successfully installed, the fencing was reinstated and the car park reopened.
