ISG wins Queen Elizabeth Hospital maternity revamp contract


Win marks construction company\'s third contract at King\'s Lynn site

ISG has won the contract to lead the refurbishment and modernisation of the central delivery suite at The Queen Elizabeth Hospital in King's Lynn.

Commissioned by the The Queen Elizabeth Hospital King's Lynn NHS Foundation Trust, the £600,000 project follows ISG’s successful delivery of a new day surgery unit and £1.4m aseptic suite at the hospital last year.

This latest project will see constructors strip out the existing facility and reconfigure the unit to deliver upgraded accommodation for women who may require the specialist support of healthcare professionals during labour. Mechanical and electrical services will be replaced and upgraded as part of the scheme, which also sees the company carrying out structural re-inforcement of steel columns to support the installation of new state-of-the-art neonatal equipment within the facility.

The fast-track project will be carried out within the hospital’s busy maternity unit and measures have been put in place to minimise any potential disruption to staff and patients throughout the duration of the works, which are scheduled for completion in the spring.

Commenting on the scheme, ISG’s Bernard Clarke, managing director for the South East, said: “The challenges of live environment working are multiplied when delivering complex hospital refurbishment projects. Experience and specialist expertise are essential attributes of the successful contractor operating within the sector and it is extremely pleasing that ISG continues to generate repeat business opportunities with key healthcare clients.”
