We have been selected by architects BDP and main contractor, Kier Southern, to manufacture and install healthcare furniture at the brand new Heatherwood Hospital, being constructed in Ascot, Berkshire.
Heatherwood Hospital has been at Ascot for almost a century, but with ageing facilities and a growing need for investment, its long-term future was in doubt. Frimley Health NHS Foundation Trust’s ambitious plan has seen a new building at the back of the current hospital site take shape, while existing services stay fully operational.
Healthcare furniture installation
We will provide:
- 400 healthcare storage units
- 300 metres of worktop
- Curtain tracks
- Installation of Trust supplied items
- Installation in all rooms, ie treatment, consulting, clean utilities etc.
The Heatherwood Hospital project
This £98m transformation programme will deliver a 4-storey facility and will contain diagnostic facilities for cardiology, radiology, lithotripsy, physiotherapy and orthodontic treatment spaces. It will have six operating theatres and forty-eight inpatient beds, plus twenty-two day case cubicles, on a 11,500 sq m site. Within ten years of its opening, the aim is for the hospital to provide services for approximately 168,000 people each year, doubling what the existing hospital currently provides. In February 2020, there was a topping out ceremony and the project is expected to be completed by the end of 2021.
A holistic approach has been taken by architects BDP, ensuring wellbeing is at the heart of the project. The overall design maximises links with nature, support and recovery and will create a calm and natural environment for the offices, primary care facility and the homes to come. Patient bedrooms will have views across the treetops and access to terraces. The cafe space will offer woodland views and there will be a large and biodiverse pond area and nearby nature walks.
David Bailey healthcare furniture at Heatherwood Hospital
Made in Britain, fitted healthcare furniture
All the fitted healthcare furniture we supply is manufactured at our factory in Broadstairs, Kent. We provide specialist, HTM 63 and HTM 71 compliant furniture and storage units, specialising in the healthcare and hospital market. We have installed fitted healthcare furniture to many UK hospitals, health centres, clinics and GP surgeries, including Guys & St. Thomas Hospital, Great Ormond Street Hospital, North Middlesex University Hospital and Northwick Park Hospital. Architects and Contractors rely on us because they know we are well established and professional and our durable furniture is manufactured in Britain with craftsmanship and professionalism. We also install our own furniture into a facility, so there is no need to ensure a contractor has installation instructions.
Supporting the NHS through the Coronavirus pandemic
Our factory has been operational throughout the Coronavirus pandemic and we have been able to support the NHS by responding quickly to orders for furniture at several facilities, including Peterborough City Hospital, Hillingdon Hospital, Royal Preston Hospital and also furniture for mobile CT scanner units in Hull.
