Inspiring healthier futures
The McAvoy Group works as a collaborative partner, providing patient and service-focused offsite building solutions to help address the rising demand for healthcare.
Our specialist healthcare team has extensive experience in delivering facilities for acute and primary care, and specialist units such as endoscopy, theatres and laboratories. Our smart offsite solutions will significantly reduce programme times to the benefit of patient care.
We recognise the importance of maintaining outstanding communications throughout a project and understanding operational requirements when we are working in live patient environments. Here, offsite construction can significantly reduce disruption to patient care and the local community by moving construction and fitting out offsite into a factory.
Offsite Solutions for Healthcare
We can help health service providers to expand capacity by developing highly constrained and enclosed sites with insufficient space for the plant and equipment required for site-based construction.
We have a detailed knowledge of health specifications and compliant processes which are critical for successful project delivery. This combined with the latest advances in modular building technology give even greater certainty of delivery on time, on budget and to the required standards.
We also work as a key partner on a number of public sector frameworks, including the LHC Modular Buildings Framework, NHS Shared Business Services, and the Southern Modular Building Framework.
Interim Healthcare Facilities
In addition to permanent healthcare facilities, we supply high quality interim modular buildings to help NHS trusts increase capacity at peak periods or for decant use while other hospital facilities are refurbished or redeveloped.
Flexible Finance Package
We offer a flexible finance package – a response to increasingly constrained capital budgets across the NHS. This allows trusts to increase capacity using modular construction with a highly flexible operating lease option. This funding solution has low set up costs, and is accounted for as revenue expenditure, spread over the life of the lease.
Improving Stakeholder Engagement
We have adopted our award-winning approach to BIM, using digital technology to facilitate client decision making. This streamlines the design process for new healthcare facilities and enhances stakeholder engagement – reducing risk, saving time and optimising the benefits of offsite solutions to the benefit of patient care.
Virtual reality and 3D modelling are particularly critical for healthcare projects which typically have highly complex building services, for example for medical gases, air flows and infection control. Here, the new technology offered by McAvoy allows the M&E services to be fully integrated within the building structure at the design stage, maximising work offsite and improving both construction and cost efficiency.
“Throughout the contract, the McAvoy site team were extremely helpful and accommodating and despite the fast-track programme, kept the level of disruption to a minimum. The Trust considers that McAvoy are particularly well suited to projects where time is of the essence and the control of costs
