Completion of the new Chemotherapy Unit at Westmorland


We are delighted to have been working with the local NHS Trust to refurbish Ward 8 at Westmorland General Hospital to deliver a new Chemotherapy unit, the Grizedale Unit, for the local community. This vital facility will enable users to access this service closer to home, relieving some of the stress incurred during a difficult treatment process. We are proud to have been involved in the development of the unit and congratulate the many dedicated fundraisers who contributed to the project funding on their achievement. The Grand Opening on 27th July was a huge success and everyone agreed that the environment was welcoming, functional and would bring great comfort to its patients.

Our works included altering the room layouts, forming new openings and partitions and refurbishment of existing rooms, including all ceiling, wall and floor finishings. It also included new fixed furniture and extensive mechanical and electrical works. Completed on time in just 10 weeks, this £150k project also achieved the Considerate Constructors Performance Beyond Compliance Certificate.
