Preston UCLAN - Nightingale Ward

Integrated Health Projects (the JV between VINCI Construction UK and Sir Robert McApline) has handed over a brand new NHS facility.

Located within the University of Central Lancashire campus and described as a ‘mini-Nightingale’ the facility can house up to 130 step up/step down/step across patient beds to help in the fight against COVID-19 and assist in the demands being placed upon the regional hospitals.

Our ability to mobilise at speed was essential with the design developed as a team (including representatives from NHS, IHP, IES and Gilling Dod Architects). The installation presented the team with a number of complex challenges with the dedication of the whole site team who worked tirelessly over a 14-day period ensuring it was successfully handed over on time. A high level of collaboration and true team working was absolutely essential to the success of this very special fast track scheme.
