Single storey modular building for hospital laboratory

New Cardiac Unit built off-site

Organisation : South Warwickshire General Hospital NHS Trust

Building Use : Healthcare

Product : Cabins, Modular Buildings

Location : Warwick

Requirement :

South Warwickshire General Hospital NHS Trust had a need for a cardiac angiography laboratory in order to respond to the Government's commitment to improving and expanding facilities for the treatment of heart disease.

Solution :

Built off-site by Portakabin (Refurbished), the new purpose-designed facility accommodates highly specialised x-ray technology for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions.

The single-storey lab comprises radiology, waiting area, recovery bays, nurse's station, treatment room and toilets. It was built in just 12 weeks and is linked to the main hospital building.

Portakabin (Refurbished)' approach allowed the trust to benefit from all the advantages of modular building – a faster programme time, improved quality, and less disruption to staff and patients during construction.

There were also the additional benefits of a standardised and proven laboratory design, and greater value for money because the building is made from refurbished pre-owned modules.

"We needed to improve our capacity and on-site facilities to enable us to offer enhanced imaging and diagnostics, replacing the mobile unit that visited the hospital six times a year. The quality of the new building is excellent and I am pleased to report it was delivered on time and on budget."

"The cardiac lab is Portakabin (Refurbished) fourth contract for the Trust, and follows the successful completion of two ward projects. Their performance and approach has been very good, despite having to work on constrained and challenging sites."

"We had a need for a new building to help us modernise our service through the increased use of day surgery which would free up critical bed space for elective cases. We appointed Portakabin (Refurbished) for their ability to produce a quality building in a very short timescale." 

"Despite having to work on a constrained, challenging site, they have delivered the building on time and on budget. The quality is very good and Portakabin (Refurbished) performance overall has been exceptional."
