During the current healthcare crisis due to COVID-19 we have been working alongside several large healthcare trusts as key workers to complete existing projects, including new build intensive care and neonatal ICU facilities and also new projects involving the creation of COVID wards by converting existing wards into intensive care facilities. This has involved our team visiting site throughout lockdown and working alongside the Trust and other project team members to ensure the COVID wards were opened at the earliest possible time on strict budgets. We have also completed several ward refurbishments at Chelsea and Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex Hospital
