Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital

Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust

The McAvoy Group was awarded a prestigious contract to design, build and install a 48-bed ward at Royal Devon and Exeter Hospital. The project was commissioned by Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust following McAvoy involvement in other health care projects with the Trust’s professional team.

Royal Devon & Exeter Hospital had an urgent requirement for additional beds to accommodate the increasing demand for the provision of healthcare at the hospital.

  • Facility 48-bed ward extension
  • Building Size 1585m2
  • Location Exeter
  • Time On Site 25 weeks

Excellent healthcare facilities

McAvoy used its vast experience in delivering buildings within the health sector to complete this project within the 25 week timeframe. A modern building was designed by McAvoy which complements its adjacent buildings. The aesthetically pleasing hospital extension provides a pleasant environment for both patients and staff. Equipped with the latest state-of –the-art equipment the new building provides the much needed space within the hospital.

The Offsite Solution

Despite working in a very tightly confined space adjacent to busy areas of the hospital, McAvoy installed the new 48 bed ward with all the ancillary accommodation, causing minimum disruption to day-to-day running of the hospital. The safety of patient and staff was at the forefront of all on-site construction.

McAvoy constructed the 48 bed ward utilising a composite façade system which has been designed to allow for further extension should it be required at a later date.


The Customer Perspective

“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 is important.”
