Queens Hospital Burton

Project Name:  Queens Hospital Burton – Treatment Centre
Location: Burton
Client: Catfoss / University Hospitals Burton & Derby NHS Trust
Net Value: £4,000,000.00


The project was to provide an extension to the Treatment Centre including: wards, specialist scanning suites and operating theatres, in the shortest possible timeframe to meet the urgent demands of the NHS. 

Tandem Projects have formed a partnership with a modular building contractor – Catfoss, to deliver turnkey solutions to the NHS urgent development requirements. Tandem Projects provided full project and contract management of the schemes working with the contractor and the client team to deliver the projects in the most effective and efficient manner, often months quicker than more traditional build programmes. 


Project Challenge

Our Response

Unknown services in the ground

When works progress at such a rate and services records are poor there is always considerable risk in the ground. As with ourselves, the contractor formed partnerships with engineering design practices who understood their requirements and drivers and could respond in the timeframes necessary.

The client team often struggles to keep pace with the project requirements and the need for information and approval.

Tandem have implemented weekly meetings with the client where the strict design approval and RFI process is reviewed, updated and signed off to allow the design to keep pace with the rapid progress of the project.
