Having completed the £1.2m outpatient facility in 2009, Paddock Johnson were commissioned to undertake the refurbishment of the inpatient, reception, café hub and nursing facilities in 2010.  The scheme was aimed at providing modern, patient orientated facilities with assistive technologies and infection control compliant installations.  Working alongside the nursing staff and operations director much dialogue was required to ensure that a full understanding of the project intentions were correctly communicated.  Affordability became a key driver as did the need for a quality building with reduced maintenance costs.

Several innovative construction solutions were selected utilising best value analysis, such as homogeneous wall coverings to wet rooms, and integrated mood lighting.  These elements were subject to a more rigorous selection process to ensure that they would not compromise the project programming, budget or delivery.  This attitude to review was intrinsic within the team working methodology to maintain the ‘Right first time approach’.

We have also completed the ‘future Services Accommodation’ which forms the final phase of the facility upgrade.  Utilising their own funds the current project of £900k will provide office and staff welfare accommodation.

Paddock Johnson Partnership were recommended to the Hospice when embarking on a major new development of our Outpatient Services area. They were appointed after a ‘selection’ process and immediately commence work on understanding our needs and those of our patients to help our management team identify the key aspects of our project. Time was invested in meeting and working with our management team to fully appreciate service requirements with the resultant proposals and subsequent development exceeding our initial expectations.

The practice managed our ‘external project group’ well, working closely with the major contractor, fellow professionals and consulting with our internal team to deliver a building and re-furbished area that was within required timescale on budget and ultimately a building that has transformed the services offered to our patients
