Following on from our announcement in January that we had been chosen by Bouygues UK to provide healthcare furniture for the University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (UCLH) flagship project, we are pleased to report that over 50% of the 70+ bedrooms we are furnishing are now completed. Here is a further update on the UCLH contract we are working on.

UCLH contract for fitted healthcare furniture
DBFS has been involved with Bouygues UK for over two years developing the furniture specification, endorsing the importance Bouygues UK places on delivering the correct furniture for this prestigious project. DBFS will be manufacturing and supplying all healthcare furniture covering storage units, worktops, shelving, bedroom furniture, reception and staff counters. The fitted furniture is built to meet the Department of Health’s HTM 63 (Health Technical Memorandum) with any modular storage meeting HTM 71 specifications. Manufacturing of the products started in November 2019 and is being built specifically to meet the tailored requirements of UCLH. Installation, managed by DBFS, will be completed by May 2020.
