Gelder Group have been appointed as main contractor to transform a former laundry building into a £850,000 MRI suite at Louth County Hospital following a long-running community fundraising appeal. The suite will include a £465,000 MRI scanner, clinical rooms and waiting areas for both outpatients and inpatients. The project will due to be completed by the end of March and it is expected that 8,000 patients a year from Louth and the surrounding rural areas will use the scanner at the hospital, rather than having to travel further afield.
ULHT’s MRI Service Lead Chris Bilton said:
The scanner will provide us with much more detailed and faster scans. It will also help to improve cancer treatment as patients can be scanned earlier, leading to a quicker diagnosis and therefore being able to start treatment sooner.

The Kenwick Park leisure spa and gym has been given an incredible new life after it was destroyed in an electrical blaze in 2014. The new facilities have been built on the site of the hotel’s former leisure centre, and have taken 14 months to complete. The spa includes a fitness suite, pools, treatment rooms and luxurious lounge areas with a project cost of £4.5million, and a lot of hard work transforming it into the new state-of-the-art Evergreen Spa.
If you would like more information about the new Kenwick Park facilities, please contact us.
The 12 month project to demolish and rebuild a new fire station for Louth was completed as scheduled in September this year. The former Eastfield Road station, which needed constant repair work, was demolished to make way for the new state-of-the-art facility. This includes a training tower and accommodation pod. Project Contracts Manager Simon Hope commented:
We worked very closely with the clients Mouchel and the end users to deliver a modern purpose built environment. We are very pleased it’s been so well received by both the fire fighters and the local community.
This is the second fire station to be completed this year by Gelder Group. If you would like more information about this build, please get in touch.
