Woodhouse Health Centre starts

We are very pleased that the Woodhouse Health Centre project in Sheffield has finally started, excavations for the new foundations will be taking place soon. About 6 months ago the Tender estimates received from Contractors for the building works were heavily over budget. This meant extensive collaborative, negotiations were held with the contractor, Sanderson Building Services and creative ways of saving costs without taking out the main scope of works were agreed. The cost savings amounted to about £120, 000 + VAT so this meant the project could proceed. As the NHS are part funding the project NHS approval was also needed before the project could start. The design and construction also need to comply with stringent CCG infection control regimes to maintain the high standard of healthcare we experience in the UK.
The main scheme involves:
  • Consulting rooms increased from 18 to 21 - three new consulting rooms.
  • New small waiting area and reception.
  • New large main reception.
  • New toilets.
  • Clean utility room.
  • Dirty utility room.
  • New increased size patient records store.
  • New staff work areas.
A major part of the project is the use of bespoke joinery to create new accessible reception counters, staff work areas and clean clinical facilities while fitting in with the constraints of the existing building.
 
This is a much needed expansion of one of the largest primary health care facilities in the Sheffield community that aims to offer improved patient care and administration upgrades to create a calming and pleasant place to visit and work at.
