The major new framework is divided into five lots and covers all types of building and construction work, design, alteration and refurbishment. It is open for use by the NHS and all other public sector bodies in the UK.
The framework runs until 16 December 2023 with options to extend until 2027 with Gelder Group securing contracts up to £2.5m in value for the whole of the East Midlands and Yorkshire and North Lincolnshire Regions.
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.
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.
