Triple Win for IHP Team

Triple Win for IHP Team

Wednesday 3rd November was an exciting day for the IHP team, as they were announced triple award-winners at the national Building Better Healthcare Awards.

The team scooped awards for Best Covid-19 Building Design 2021 and Best Covid-19 Project Team for their work on the Ward-18 project at Huddersfield Royal Infirmary, for Calderdale and Huddersfield NHS Foundation Trust.

The icing on the cake was collecting the Clinician’s Choice Award – a special recognition award, chosen by a panel of healthcare professionals, as their standout project among all the awards entries.

The team’s work to transform an existing hospital ward, into a new treatment space for Covid patients, was delivered fast-track, during the height of the Coronavirus pandemic, whilst overcoming major challenges presented by the escalating situation and the logistical difficulties of working in a live hospital environment.

Delivered to IHP’s stringent safety, quality and responsibility standards – by local people, accident/incident free, with zero defects, the new facility was receiving and treating patients within 4 days of handover in December 2020.

The improved workspace also boosted hospital staff’s morale, with its new staff room providing them with a much-needed place to rest and recuperate during a hugely testing, unprecedented global health crisis.

IHP partners from VINCI Construction UK were at the ceremony to collect the award, from where VINCI’s Regional Director, Chris Winspear, proudly addressed his colleagues: “Alongside our Project Manager Marc Heaps, I’m absolutely delighted and very proud to represent the fantastic team that delivered this project. You’ve been recognised nationally for delivering something very special and you should all be justifiably proud of your collective and individual contributions.”
