Testimonials

Ryan Milbourne

“MTX have worked collaboratively with University Hospitals of Leicester NHS Trust to provide an additional 64 inpatient beds, split across 3 wards. The wards have been constructed on the existing hospital roof, directly above live wards. Not only did this radical design solution help us to achieve good clinical adjacencies, but it’s always enabled Trust operations to continue with relatively low disruption. Whilst challenges were inevitable with the construction of this solution, MTX have always prioritised appropriately and their site management team have been good at communicating directly with clinical staff and other stakeholders when required. Quality of fit and finish is to a high standard and the clinical staff are rightly excited to be working in the new facility.”

“In partnership with J&JMS, MTX have delivered an exceptional building which provides GSTT with additional surgical and recovery capacity. Despite the constant challenges associated with delivering a build project within one of the busiest parts of central London, MTX delivered the theatre complex on time and under budget. With the new theatre connecting into a live operational area, MTX’s collaborative approach enabled the project to be completed with no clinical incidents, ensuring continuity of care throughout the process.”

“MTX were appointed in early 2018 to deliver a modular building consisting of two operating theatres, Endoscopy procedure room and ancillary accommodation, including a 7 space recovery unit. The building was delivered in just over 7 months on site and within the allocated budget. We feel this was an extremely successful contract which delivered a modern facility to the standards set at the inception of the project. MTX were extremely flexible in their approach and worked collaboratively with the Health Board team. MTX’s site based team were easy to work with and maintained good communication with the hospital representatives during the contract. We would have no hesitation in using MTX again for any future projects.”

“MTX have delivered a building fit for purpose, on time, to budget and to the quality we would expect. MTX have been great partners throughout the whole process and very open with their accounting procedures regarding changes incorporated during the build. The onsite team and site manager have kept the Hospital very close during construction with advance notice given of any disruptive works, a good all round performance and would have no hesitation in recommending MTX for such projects in the future.”

“It has felt like a strong partnership throughout. The company has been very honest, straightforward and transparent, including on cost. The nice thing about working in partnership is that you can solve challenges together. That for me has been exceptional on this project. The clinicians that have visited the completed building over the past few days have been highly impressed and I know staff are looking forward to moving into the new accommodation.”

“MTX were extremely proactive, accommodating and understanding of our needs. The project included groundworks that revolved around archaeology and the contractor acted in a compliant manner, engaging with all stakeholders and contributed to the mitigations required to minimise impact on cost and time. Their approach enabled us to be relatively flexible with design, development and to a degree beyond the prescribed fabrication dates”.

“MTX have recently completed a state-of-the-art PET / MR Scanner Suite on a design and build contract for their client; Engie Buildings Limited at the Central Manchester University Hospital Trust for studies in to dementia. Their pre-construction team provided design leadership from the outset and a proactive attitude toward solving difficult technical problems which included the use of an electrically powered robotic pecker inside the building to break out an existing ground floor slab in a live Hospital environment. The project was managed diligently throughout the construction phase, with strong relationships built between all of the stakeholders involved. This created a positive atmosphere teamwork approach to the project and has resulted in its successful completion, with the expectations of the users being exceeded.”

Patsy Tobin, 4th February 2016

“The scheme was delivered both on time and within budget with thoroughly professional managers and site management. The Project Team worked with the Trust throughout the design and construction period. Every effort was made to minimise disruption on the day-to-day operations of the hospital and there was excellent management and collaboration during the construction phase. This included close liaison with 2 live surgical wards above and a main Outpatient department below as the works involved major disruption to both these services. The MTX personnel were professional, knowledgeable and extremely competent; they dealt with a breadth of people on-site with courtesy at all times and were a delight to work with. The Trust is exceedingly pleased with the quality of the new unit and hopes to replicate it on further refurbishment

“MTX delivered a great building and enabled the Trust to make use of 63 beds within 11 months. The facility is sandwiched between a 24 hour A&E department and theatre complex and works were undertaken around such crucial clinical services, it really demonstrates careful logistical planning and commitment by the Team which was most reassuring.”

Colin Plant, Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust

“I found MTX to be a complete pleasure to work with throughout all stages of procurement, design development, and off site and on site construction. The scheme was handed over on time and in budget, with top class and thoroughly professional managers and site management team. The overall progress was significantly fast tracked in order to support additional capacity on the Walsall Manor Hospital site – all achieved to the target date of the 19th December 2014. The clinicians and nursing teams and directors of the Trust are delighted with the end product, which can serve additional capacity but also cleverly designed to be a decant ward at certain times of the year- meaning the space is completely flexible and choice of colours and finishes means it meets the needs

“MTX are an excellent company to work with. The PROJECT TEAM worked with the Trust throughout the design and construction period. Every effort was made to minimise disruption on the day-to-day operations of the hospital and there was excellent management and collaboration during the construction process. The appropriate level of PROJECT management STAFF was provided throughout the project and all issues/queries were promptly dealt with in consultation/collaboration with all parties involved.”

Nigel Bond, June 2013

“Our scheme consisted of a circa 1500m2 development over 3 floors. During our interaction with MTX we found you to be thorough, knowledgeable and willing to work with the estates professionals as well as the clinical team. The building was finished to a high standard and within time and cost parameters. In summary MTX performed very well on this scheme, worked in partnership with us and delivered as expected. I would not hesitate to employ MTX again and feel confident in recommending them to anyone else”.

David Stonehouse, March 2014

“The Trust is exceedingly pleased with the building as a whole. This expansion was an essential requirement to achieve performance standards for the A&E department specifically and the hospital as a whole. More importantly the area provides a high quality clinical environment for improved patient care. I understand that your team work relentlessly within tight timescales and difficult conditions to achieve the agreed handover date”

Paul Holt, February 2013

“We have successfully worked with MTX on several capital projects over a number of years and found them to offer an excellent service. On this occasion we set an almost impossible challenge of delivering, a fully equipped modular 6 bed medical unit adjacent our Emergency department within 3 1/2 months. Not only did they deliver, we opened 3 days earlier than planned. Given that we built this unit  in the worst possible months in terms of cold weather including two occasions when we had 100mm of snow, MTX provided significant professional advice through their turnkey solution, putting together the right project team that created an attractive warm modern clinical environment. The positive impact was immediate in supporting the ongoing and exceptional clinical service we offer the residents of Stockport”

Michael Smethurst, January 2013

“Having worked with MTX upon this particularly complex and challenging modular building from scheme conception through to completion, all credit must be awarded to MTX and their award winning site team for ensuring that all planning, delivery and co-ordination aspects of the scheme went seamlessly. Given the additional constraints of completing this scheme within a challenging programme, to a fixed budget and within a live hospital environment, is further evidence that MTX are a company securely placed to complete challenging and demanding healthcare projects”.

“The extent, scale and scope of the (90-phase) project is clearly substantial. In this first phase, MTX must take great credit for the standard of its work, for its excellent planning and liaison with us as main contractor and for the calm way in which they went about complex contract delivery”.

Marion Washer, April 2011

“The MTX team communicated well with myself and my colleague and were always approachable for any queries we had. They fully appreciated the need to restrict disruption to the existing theatres that were in close proximity to the new build, this made the whole project easy to manage from a clinical perspective. Despite limited footprint in which to build our new theatres, they are spacious, light and airy and the staff enjoy working in them.  All thanks to MTX and our Trust Project Manager”.

“The project had to be completed to an extremely tight schedule, but despite the considerable time pressures, and the structural and other construction challenges MTX faced, they delivered the new theatre on time and on budget, which was critical for us, to a very high standard”

“When I saw the finished facility I thought it was absolutely stunning, especially given the very limited space MTX had to work with. The company also extremely skilfully managed the job in a way that saw us able to carry on performing all our usual work without any significant disruption, which was a considerable achievement in itself. The standard of finish and fit is first-class and we now, as a Trust, undertake all our orthopaedic procedures at Heatherwood hospital, which has become a centre of excellence for this type of surgery”

“We would like to bring to your attention our appreciation of the hard work and support of your (service) team here at Paddock Wood. Despite the weather conditions that have been against us and the extreme temperatures here in the South East the kit has continued to work. It is a credit to your company that we felt worthy of writing to you and look forward to a continued working success together”.

“The project has received a subjective thumbs up… the exterior appearance is attractive; the wood panelling looks nicely under-stated and gives a very “natural” feel to the building.”

Narciso Simioni, January 2009

“There is no doubt that many architects have been somewhat dismissive about modular buildings in the past, tending to view them exclusively as temporary facilities built down to a cost to serve a short-term need…. I think perceptions are changing and from my viewpoint (the Stepping Hill project) has been a real eye-opener both in terms of the standard of design and end result”.
