Working with East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust
We are delighted to be working with East Sussex Healthcare NHS Trust to deliver a bespoke modular extension. Due to the urgency of this project, we will be manufacturing all units off site, delivering fully-completed modules.
Jonathan Dixon, Commercial Director at Health Spaces: “We have worked closely with the Trust’s estates and clinical teams to understand the challenge. Our bespoke fast-track modular solution ensures for a time-sensitive build with minimal disruption to the Trust’s operations and patient flow.”
Our bespoke fast-track modular solution ensures for a time-sensitive build with minimal disruption to the Trust’s operations and patient flow. Our pre-constructed units will be delivered to site, ready for rapid deployment.
What are Modern Methods of Construction (MMC)?
The UK Government has been increasingly encouraging and incentivising the use of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) for building projects across the public sector. Our MMC solutions incorporate strategic supply chain partnerships to provide a wide range of MMC types for different needs that include:
- Traditional volumetric modular buildings
- System-build wall panels
- Light gauge steel frame (LGSF)
- Passivhaus timber frame modular building
- Structurally Insulated Panels (SIPs)
Maximising off-site construction through MMC has a number of financial and practical benefits for the NHS that include:
- Minimising disruption to live hospital sites
- 95% less waste than traditional build
- Rapid delivery to meet urgent clinical requirements
- Cost effective
- Repeatable economies of scale
- Reduced carbon footprint
