NHS Capital Works Programme - Bolton

We were delighted to be working with NHS Property Services on the refurbishment of 16 health centres within the Bolton area.

The NHS Capital works project comprised the refurbishment of public toilets, staff facilities and clinical rooms which brought them up to current NHS regulations. External works and renovations were completed across a number of the health centre's which included car park alterations, drainage remediation works and the complete re-roofing of the Avondale Health Centre. In addition, all health centres underwent extensive mechanical and electrical upgrade works which included boiler replacement, emergency lighting upgrade and fire alarm replacement work. 

Following the success of the main NHS Capital Works Project we were then awarded the additional works package at St Peters House to undertake the refurbishment and reorganisation of the 2nd floor meeting area. The works included the complete removal of existing walls, surface finishes and electrical equipment and reconfiguration of the same into a more ‘user friendly’ space complete with an acoustic folding partition wall that can be used to divide the space for separate functions. A full electrical and AV installation was also carried out as part of the project.

Due to work being carried out in a ‘live’ environment it was essential that all work was carefully programmed and detailed to ensure minimum disturbance to staff and patients.

"Armitage worked exceptionally well to deliver a number of NHS capital projects across a number of sites in Bolton within a restricted timeframe and live working environment. They demonstrated a high level of organisation and excellent communication skills that facilitated the smooth progress of the works."
