Robert Woodhead Ltd has successfully won the NHS Property Services Nottinghamshire Backlog Maintenance Contract for the third year in a row.
The construction company, based in Nottinghamshire, will start work on 19 health centres across the County on the 20th January 2014. This £720,000 project will take 20 weeks to complete. The work will include health centre maintenance such as boiler upgrades and repairs, asbestos removal and mechanical and electrical work.
The same team achieved an excellent customer service rating for the last programme and will provide the same level of service this time. As in previous years to minimise the disruption to patients, doctors and residents from the work being undertaken, the company will restrict the number of contractors on site, complete work in a staged process and ensure noise levels are low. Subcontractors and materials will be procured within the Nottinghamshire area.
Jonathan Baldock, Contract Administrator, who awarded the project to Robert Woodhead Ltd on behalf of NHS Property Services confirmed, “Robert Woodhead successfully completed a challenging Backlog Maintenance Works contract in our last financial year. This included a broad range of refurbishments and improvements to various busy health centres and surgeries across NHS Property Services Nottinghamshire County estate. They are a company who understand the sensitive nature and needs of the environment they are working in, and have demonstrated that they have the experience and flexibly to keep disruption to a minimum.”
Mark Maisey, Minor Works Team Leader at Robert Woodhead Ltd explains, “The team are pleased to have won the contract again and are looking forward to starting the project in the New Year. We have established an excellent working relationship with NHS Property Services and the Health Centre Managers and look forward to continuing our work with them.”
