Come along to Healthcare Estates and hear about our developments and investments we've made over…
David Bailey Furniture Systems (DBFS), leading manufacturer and supplier of fitted furniture to the healthcare market, has recently been awarded two major private finance initiative (PFI) contracts. The specialist contracts for Barnet General Hospital and Hereford Hospital are worth £100,000 and £110,000 respectively, with both contractors specifying David Bailey’s Healthline range of fitted furniture.
Work on phase 1B of Barnet General Hospital is due to commence in June this year, with November 2001 being the target date for completion. The project, worth a total of £50 million, is to build a five-story extension to the existing hospital.
Luc Desplanques, site manager for contractor Bouygues UK Limited, commented: “We chose to specify David Bailey for a number of reasons. As well as offering an excellent service and a competitive bid, the company participated in the development of the design, offering invaluable help interpreting the Health Technical Memorandum regulations.”
The Hereford Hospital project is a joint venture for contractors Alfred McAlpine and Haden Young, with furniture installation due to commence in May 2001. It will comprise an amalgamation of the existing Eye, General and County hospitals. David Bailey was recently specified by Alfred McAlpine for the soon to be completed acute block at Wythenshawe Hospital, Manchester, where the company installed its range of HTM 63 suspended units.
The company has been contracted to supply and install for both hospitals, and will be using its dedicated team of DBFS approved fitters. This allows the company to maintain its high level of service from the initial bidding stage right through to fitting. It also takes some of the pressure off the contractor because he knows that trained installers are fitting the units, and any problems can be solved immediately.
