Willmott Dixon Interiors delivers fifth project to enhance safety and patient wellbeing at St. Michael's Hospital

Willmott Dixon Interiors has completed the renovation of a mental health rehabilitation unit in Warwick that will provide an improved patient experience and help keep vulnerable people safe from harm. 

The national fit-out and refurbishment specialist contractor has delivered the anti-ligature refurbishment of Ferndale Ward, a 32,000sq ft unit at St. Michael’s Hospital.

Works were carried out in a live hospital environment and included the installation of new windows and internal doors, and adaptations to power, data, and access control services.

Improvements have also been made to lighting, ventilation grilles, radiator covers, and sanitaryware, while flooring has been cleaned and repaired.

And the building has been redecorated throughout.

The refurbishment is the penultimate phase of a wider project to upgrade several inpatient wards and outpatient clinics at St. Michael’s Hospital on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.  

All phases were awarded via Procurement Hub Major Project Framework and delivered by a project team including Fulkers Bailey Russell as quantity surveyor and Design Buro as principal designer.

The full project will culminate in the refurbishment of the Larches Ward, which is due to complete early next year.

Sonya Gardiner, chief operating officer at Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust, said: “It is critical that we provide safe environments for our patients and this is why we continue to invest in refurbishing our estates to provide safe and therapeutic environments that support patient recovery.”
