Pexhurst has just handed over its first job for project management company Firn Limited, using all of its experience in the healthcare environment to deliver 10 fully refurbished private patient rooms.
Rivers Hospital, owned and managed by Ramsay Health Care, promises to deliver patient care in the highest quality surroundings. Consequently the patient suites include ensuite bathrooms, wetrooms, broadband data connections LED lighting etc. The objective is to match the luxury to be found in a five star hotel without compromising clinical functionality.
For Pexhurst the challenge of this fit-out lay in negotiating sensitively around the operational requirements of the hospital that remained fully functional throughout the three week project period. Out of hours working was standard and constant liaison with the senior nursing staff minimised disruption.
Architects Hall Neadham Associates provided the design and Pexhurst were asked to tender for the project.
Andy Holt of Firn Ltd was more than satisfied with the delivery of the work: "Your guys performed really well. And just to prove the point we have asked them to do another project almost immediately."
The second project, at another Ramsay Health Care Hospital (this time in Chelmsford) starts on site in August and involves a similar type of refurbishment work.
