Yorkon has completed the construction of a Procure 21 project for Interserve Project Services at the University Hospital of North Tees in Stockton.
The £2.8m contract involved the offsite construction and fitting out of a state-of-the-art 42-bed emergency assessment unit. This comprises 42 steel-framed modules, made in York and installed on site in a few days, minimising disruption to patient care and reducing the programme time.
The building was delivered a little over six months after it started on site and provides a range of facilities for acute emergency surgical care. These include four-bed wards and single ensuite bedrooms, an isolation ward, high dependency beds, consulting rooms, ward manager’s office, waiting areas, quiet room, staff changing facilities and rest room, and an interview room. The unit is equipped with wireless workstations for use at patients’ bedsides, isolation rooms, ensuite bathrooms, no-touch taps and bespoke window blinds.
