The McAvoy Group has been shortlisted for the Healthcare Project of the Year award at the 2020 Offsite Awards for their work at Northumbria Specialist Emergency Care Hospital for Northumbria Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust. The scheme comprises a new 6,500m2 purpose-built wing and ambulatory care unit. The highly complex scheme, which pushed the boundaries of offsite construction, was delivered on a live hospital site. Working collaboratively with the client and wider team the build programme was reduced by 50% with the building being completed in under 12 months.
Commenting on the scheme, Rob Sanderson, Deputy Director of Capital Projects, Northumbria Healthcare FML stated:
“Everyone worked on this project in a completely collaborative and focused way to define and build the new wing in a highly ambitious timeframe. What we have achieved collectively – in terms of complexity and timescale – is unprecedented in the healthcare sector and we hope the partnership will continue on other projects.”
The awards ceremony will take place virtually on 22nd September 2020.
