Works to the car park at Louth Hospital began on the 15th November in preparation for the start of Covid-19 vaccine program. The work included upgrades to the car park surface and drainage of the 2400mtr squared area. The £150k project is only part of the improvement projects the hospital are undertaking in advance of the rollout commencing on the 15th December 2020.
The commercial Department completed works at Louth Hospital to convert a dilapidated building into a new MRI Scanning facility. The £650k essential project was undertaken on behalf of United Lincolnshire Hospital and was completed with the support of our sub-contractors who worked to ensure all social distancing and safety measures were observed in completing the project. Our thanks to all involved GRS Electrical, Selmec, Ludafloors, Develin Decorators, SBR Dry Lining and many others.
Thank You to our team at Lincoln Hospital who, in the space of three weeks, have converted a first floor maternity ward into a Palliative Care Ward. They have demolished an existing mortuary, installed bases and overseen the installation of a new off-site constructed extended mortuary. On top of that, the team have converted Accident and Emergency to create four isolation rooms.
Always working with respect to others and around hospital admissions, often working late into the night, weekends and bank holidays and always with the Gelder ‘can do’ attitude; we thank Adam Clark (joiner), Steve Alcock (joiner), Richard Charlton (bricklayer), Darrell Heath (bricklayer), Tom Crowther (plumber), Dave Wass (plumber).
Thanks also go to our management team of Andy Doran, Ollie Taylor & sub-contractors UDCS, AAA Scaffolding, Paul Cotton Joinery, Michael Doran Joinery, Darryl Clarke Joinery, Selmec, SBR Dry Lining and Paul Clark. Thanks also to the team at Jewson’s who were particularly helpful with material sourcing and deliveries throughout.
Gelder Group still continues with work on other Lincolnshire hospital sites in the fight against the disease Covid-19. Other Gelder teams continue to progress works on projects where it is safe to do so. Individuals from across the company are helping with the delivery of medication and supplies to vulnerable people and our teams continue to provide a range of emergency call out services. For all of this; the whole organisation is hugely grateful.
