Sorry, we couldn't find any media in that category.
The delivery of two 48 bedded wards to the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust by McAvoy has enabled us to provide much needed additional care to our communities.
A modular solution was the right choice for us due to the need for additional ward space at both Good Hope Hospital and Heartlands Hospital following the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. The projects were delivered on time with minimal disruption which was vital to us as the wards were being installed in a live hospital environment.”
“What makes this more special for me is to know that the school now has the long-term benefit of a more energy efficient building – and to know that this project has contributed to the Department’s work on improving our specifications for future schools. We’re really pleased with the overall quality finish of the building. There has been a real collaborative and solution-focused approach to overcoming the many hurdles we faced on this project. Walking through the building today you would never know this building was using offsite modules.”
“We are extremely grateful for the work that McAvoy have done to deliver us our new school that is now providing education for 60 young people with autism, 65% of whom were not accessing full time education prior to joining. The school will become home to 110 young people over the coming years who will benefit from the skill and expertise of the staff but also a fantastic environment thanks to McAvoy.”
“Having The McAvoy Group responsible for both site works and providing the temporary modular classrooms meant a seamless process. They are a very efficient company which makes them easy to work with. The standard of their temporary accommodation is excellent. Students and teachers are very happy with their classrooms. I would highly recommend The McAvoy Group.”
“Overall the finish on the building is of a very high standard. Our view is that compared to the sort of educational establishments we have seen that this is better than others, and many others in the field have agreed it’s better than they’ve experienced before too.”
“The educational space is really good; it’s very light and brighter and bigger than our expectations,” she said.
“McAvoy had to deal with a very challenging design due to the restrictions placed on it by the adjacent church. We couldn’t have windows along an entire wall of a classroom so we were afraid it might be dark, however, the way they designed it was very clever and with the borrowed light from the atrium it’s very bright.”
She said the students were very pleased with their new college and were ‘voting with their feet’ by happily congregating in the social spaces due to its light and airy feel and comfortable design.
Ms Clarkson said McAvoy had to deal with a number of issues of bureaucracy including the possibility of archaeological sensitive in the environs of the school and neighbouring church.
Despite that, she said McAvoy’s offsite manufacturing processes allowed for the commencement of the build, regardless, preventing any excessive delays.
