LHC and NHS Shared Business Services framework approved
We are also part of frameworks including LHC and NHS Shared Business Services to ensure your procurement process is as smooth as possible.
Although only intended to provide temporary accommodation for a period of up to five years, the modular laboratories still needed to provide state-of-the-art facilities for the world leading departments. These facilities ranged from Cat 2 wet laboratories and constant temperature rooms to over 50 specialist testing booths, some electromagnetically shielded to enable EEG studies.
Don't just take our word for it, see what our customers say about our track record of delivering successful laboratories.
Hull Royal Infirmary
Key requirements for the project were to incorporate the structure of an existing two-storey modular ward block into the new scheme; to minimise disruption to the adjacent hospital building.
Royal Stoke University Hospital
University Hospital North Midlands NHS Trust successfully gained funding for extra bed space, on condition that procurement, build and commissioning of the building was within four months. Engaging Portakabin through the NHS Shared Business Services framework made this possible, with manufacture of the facility beginning just seven weeks into the programme.
