Healthcare & Veterinary
Buxton has been delivering quality construction services to the health sector for a number of years. Through establishing specialist teams within the business we have built an extensive knowledge base of health care construction know-how, proven methods of delivery and reliable results. Part of this has been acknowledging that early collaboration is vital and that integrating early with key members of the health sector project team, the health care staff and stakeholders will result in project success.
With a talented Planning Manager who fully understands the needs of health care clients and the need for flexibility, we are continually exceeding our health care clients’ expectations now, in real time projects carried out in live hospital sites.
We, as the main contractor, acknowledge that we are not the most important factor in a health care project; it is all about patient care and the hospital’s day to day operations which must be held at the fore so that we accommodate their needs before our own objectives.
Queen Elizabeth Foundation
Works included the demolition of an existing building, and construction of a new neurorehabilitation centre.
The new building has 48 bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom, therapy gym and therapy rooms, along with ancillary accommodation and associated facilities.
The works also include external hard and soft landscaping, access road and footpaths.
QEF is a national charity helping to transform the lives of people with varying disabilities to increase their independence and achieve their life ambitions.
During the build the Buxton team supported the charity by entering four riders who took part in the Prudential RideLondon-Surrey 100, one of the greatest cycling challenges in the world.
