London North West Healthcare NHS Trust “ “MTX delivered a great building and enabled the Trust to make use of 63 beds within 11 months. The facility is sandwiched between a 24 hour A&E department and theatre complex and works were undertaken around such crucial clinical services, it really demonstrates careful logistical planning and commitment by the Team which was most reassuring.” Muhammad Syed- Head of Capital Projects for London North West Healthcare NHS Trust ”

Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust “ “The scheme was delivered both on time and within budget with thoroughly professional managers and site management. The Project Team worked with the Trust throughout the design and construction period. Every effort was made to minimise disruption on the day-to-day operations of the hospital and there was excellent management and collaboration during the construction phase. This included close liaison with 2 live surgical wards above and a main Outpatient department below as the works involved major disruption to both these services. The MTX personnel were professional, knowledgeable and extremely competent; they dealt with a breadth of people on-site with courtesy at all times and were a delight to work with. The Trust is exceedingly pleased with the quality of the new unit and hopes to replicate it on further refurbishment projects. I would have no hesitation in recommending the use of MTX as a Contractor and look forward to working with them again here at CMFT.” Patsy Tobin- Lead Commissioning & Clinical Planning Manager ”

Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust “ “I found MTX to be a complete pleasure to work with throughout all stages of procurement, design development, and off site and on site construction. The scheme was handed over on time and in budget, with top class and thoroughly professional managers and site management team. The overall progress was significantly fast tracked in order to support additional capacity on the Walsall Manor Hospital site – all achieved to the target date of the 19th December 2014. The clinicians and nursing teams and directors of the Trust are delighted with the end product, which can serve additional capacity but also cleverly designed to be a decant ward at certain times of the year- meaning the space is completely flexible and choice of colours and finishes means it meets the needs of dementia patients . Of particular note is the diamond configuration of the four bedded template which supports privacy and dignity needs; provides touch down space for clinical teams within the rooms; and supports reduction of infections through greater space. This is certainly innovative within the Black Country. I would most definitely recommend MTX and the team.” Colin Plant- Divisional Director Estates and Facilities for Walsall Healthcare NHS Trust ”

Northwick Park Hospital

Northwick Park Hospital

In December 2014 MTX were awarded the contract to design, install and commission a new five storey modular extension. The project was completed within 49 weeks.

 

The Requirements:

 

London North West Healthcare NHS Trust required a new modular development to provide acute ward accommodation for forty eight bed spaces along with fifteen bed isolation wards and ancillary rooms. This was to be housed over five storeys of modular accommodation including a curtain glazed main entrance and top floor plantroom. The main building was to be built on a transfer structure to allow continued movement at ground floor of ambulances serving the new facility.

 

The Solution:

 

The new modular wards are positioned in a tight space between the hospitals existing operating theatre suites and emergency department. One of the key priorities for the new ward was a good connection to the existing emergency department. This link was provided by a main link corridor approximately 50 metre length along with an open plan link area.

 

 Planning of the foundations was a challenge due to the existing location at a main substation, HV and LV cables and the main medical gas oxygen supply to the hospital. To greatly reduce any disruption to the Trust and due to the concentration of loads at column positions, an augered pile solution was designed which incorporated 172 piles with diameters ranging between 325 – 450mm.

 

The main accommodation was split over three floors with a 24 bed design to Level 3 and Level 4. Level 5 is a state of the art isolation ward with fifteen isolation rooms including positive pressure lobbies. Each floor is served by two lifts with the lift lobbies being designed with graphic designed décor stating the name of each floor (named after Crick, Darwin and Elgar).

 

 Repeatable room designs were utilised throughout the floors with four bed multi wards, single bedroom accommodation and standardised isolation rooms. Each floor was served with a modern designed reception area including a curved desk, feature decoration and TV displays.

 

Touchdown staff bases were also incorporated into the layout design giving nurses and clinicians an excellent observation point over the wards.

 

All floors were designed and installed to achieve the response factor (2) required by HTM for night ward accommodation using a hollow rib deck construction infilled with reinforced concrete.

 

Internal finishes were of a high standard throughout with all doors to the isolation ward being fully encapsulated. The external finish of the building was a Formica Vivix Rainscreen cladding with the plantroom having a contrasting louvred screen.

 

Within the top floor plantroom is a large amount of specialist equipment including 17 no. air handling units, IPS and UPS equipment and chiller plant. Each isolation room is served by its own air handling unit to comply with the stringent regulations. These rooms are also monitored by pressure alarms. Sustainable renewable technologies were incorporated within the building infrastructure along with smart technology LED lighting. MTX commenced on site in February 2015 with a site set up and site strip works. Throughout the project, MTX had a core project team based on site including site managers, construction and M & E manager and a Health and Safety manager.

 

Main Considerations:

 

The module installation had to be planned months in advance with the Trust to ensure logistics and careful co-ordination with all elements of the restricted site space and location. Throughout the lifting operation of all 105 modules, the main one way ring road around the hospital along with the blue light route were not disrupted and maintained clear at all times. The module installation was completed in July 2015 with the Trust taking full occupational use of the building in early January 2016. MTX worked closely throughout the scheme with the Trusts team and capital project manager to deliver a flagship building to a very high standard.

 

What they said:

 

“MTX delivered a great building and enabled the Trust to make use of 63 beds within 11 months. The facility is sandwiched between a 24 hour A&E department and theatre complex and works were undertaken around such crucial clinical services, it really demonstrates careful logistical planning and commitment by the Team which was most reassuring”

Ashmole Academy

Ashmole Academy

In later date of 2013 MTX Contracts were awarded the contract to design, manufacture and install a new flagship 6th form centre for Ashmole Academy, Southgate London.

 

The Requirements:

 

From the outset the aim was to produce a vibrant, modern building and environment for students entering higher and further education who would be using the building daily as their hub for studies and relaxation. The building was also to cater for an influx in additional student numbers and increase capacity from 150 to 320 pupils.

 

The Solution:

 

A bespoke building comprising of multi coloured multi textured facades to all elevations encompassing entrance lobby area with access to 1st floor via staircase or platform lift, ground floor lounge and seating area, 2 no staff offices, toilet facilities and a in house café catering to staff and pupils. A 1st floor area state of the art electronic library/study area with 3 staff offices and servers room. Finishes within the building being bright and specifically designed around the brief to instil a sense of place for all users of the facility.

 

The building and sub structure too have been specially designed for this project and take into account the many challenge’s this site presented. The piled foundations and beams were designed to also incorporate the ground floor slab and was designed to take the module sections which were delivered to site without floors. The slab was created with pockets and a perimeter shelf to take the steel frame sections and columns. Once mated to the foundations the building was ready to be fitted out on the ground floor whilst the 1st floor concrete was being poured. This method providing many programme advantages with fit-out works commencing almost immediately after the installation. Internally the ground floor main area being finished with all mechanical and electrical services left on show along with the steel framework of the modules. This creates a modern, industrial look further complemented with additional features such as feature walls, reclaimed brick wall and suspended lighting of various types.

 

Main Considerations:

 

The installation was earmarked for a weekday installation over 3 days and whilst the school remained fully operational to pupils and staff. The location of the school within a residential area, meant that meticulous planning would be needed to ensure that the vehicles carrying the modules could be delivered safely, without impedance or disruption to a very busy suburb of London.

 

MTX successfully closed of a number of residential roads to ensure this took place and with minimal disruption to road users and residents alike with all 18 modules being installed over a 3 day period. The project has been a great success and entered into service at the beginning of the new school term. The project was completed in just 25 weeks.

 

What they said:

 

We would like to take this opportunity to thank MTX Contracts Ltd for delivering this project, to a very high standard and in compliance with budget and timescale deadlines. The MTX team have demonstrated a high level of competency, and worked closely with everyone to complete a ‘fully fit for purpose’ solution. We are proud that our new building has already received so many positive comments and congratulations. We would have no hesitation recommending MTX Contracts Ltd to any of their future and prospective customers – and act as referees for any of their publications.

Ysbyty Glan Clwyd

Ysbyty Glan Clwyd

In June 2012 MTX were awarded the contract to deliver a new state of the art modular building to house a new Mortuary and Bereavement Centre at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd in North Wales.

 

The Requirements:

 

Working for main contractor Laing O’Rourke MTX have been awarded a number of projects at Ysbyty Glan Clwyd all of which form part of the Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board’s £90 million refurbishment and remodelling project expected to be completed by 2018.

 

The £90 million project, initiated by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) was primarily put in place to remove asbestos from the Glan Clwyd Hospital site. However, getting the go-ahead and funding to remove the asbestos has meant that they could also use the opportunity to refurbish many key parts of the hospital including the operating theatres, mortuary facility, pathology department and accident and emergency department to deliver a world-class facility for staff, patients and the public it serves.

 

The Solution:

 

MTX were contracted to design and construct a new stand-alone, 550m2 modular mortuary facility located on a green belt site at the rear of the hospital grounds and work commenced on site in June 2012. The modern facility, highly specified both internally and externally, consists of a post mortem room, body fridges, offices, changing rooms, viewing room and observation area, all serviced by a dedicated plant room located on the first floor and delivered over a tight 28-week construction programme.

 

An attractive building, the new mortuary facility, was handed over to the Trust earlier than scheduled in December 2012 and has been externally finished with bespoke coloured spandrel panels and a Kingspan micro-ribbed cladding system providing a clinical, modern look whilst remaining sympathetic with the buildings purpose. The modular building also features a louvered screen wall along the first floor roofline with a matching Kingspan parapet that effectively hides the external plant area without screening it off entirely.

 

Main Considerations:

 

The modular building installation has been built to BREEAM ‘very good’ rating, a pre-requisite of the Betsi Cadwaladr Trust for all of their new buildings. In addition Solar PV Panels have been installed on the roof of the mortuary facility to help serve some of the departments energy requirements.

 

Both Laing O’Rourke and the Hospital Trust are delighted with the new mortuary facility and are impressed by the time scale in which it was delivered. The new facility has also been awarded ‘winner’ of both the County and Regional Building Control Building Excellence Award 2013 in the Best Healthcare/Community project category.



Manchester Royal Infirmary

Manchester Royal Infirmary

In summer 2015 MTX were awarded the contract to redevelop an existing ENT department in to a new 46 Bed Head & Neck Surgical Unit and Vascular Centre at the Manchester Royal Infirmary.

 

The Requirements:

 

As part of an ongoing life cycle programme, Central Manchester University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust identified an area of redundant space to convert in to two new surgical wards. The proposal involved the redevelopment and reconfiguration of the existing Ear Nose & Throat (ENT) Department, situated on the first floor of the Phase 2 building at Manchester Royal Infirmary.

 

 

The Solution:

 

Working alongside Cofely Suez and Sodexo, the first task was to establish the site compound and erect all temporary hoardings to segregate the construction areas from the public and live areas which were in close proximity. Once established MTX created access to the roof works area and the main 1st floor site via an external Haki staircase complete with a one tonne goods hoist. Access into the 1st floor area involved the cutting out of two large sections of the existing concrete façade and setting it to one side, to be reinstated upon completion. This approach worked extremely well meaning there was no public interface at any time during the works.

 

 

The M&E services feeding in to the area were disconnected and made safe in preparation for an immediate start with the strip out works, commencing early January 2015. Once all M&E services were removed, the entire floor area was carefully dismantled and prepared in readiness for the fit out phase to begin.

 

 

A major part of the project was to re-divert the existing drainage serving the floor above, whilst reconfiguring the drainage to suit the new arrangement and to reinstate all the existing services in the floor below. All of which had to be carried around a live hospital environment with limited shut downs permitted.

 

 

Also included within the scheme was a new glass façade external service riser allowing the ventilation services fed from high level to pass between floors without the need to disrupt the wards above. This too was installed with minimal disruption to the floor above and provided two additional much needed store rooms.

 

 

The facility consists of:

 

 

Main reception area

3 No. 7 bed wards with shared en-suites

 2 No. 9 bed wards with shared en-suites and shower rooms

 7 No. single bedrooms with en-suite

 Combined preparation rooms

 Dirty utilities

 Kitchen

 Stores

 Large Staff room

 Meeting rooms

 12 No. administrative rooms

 

Internally the scheme was specified and finished to a very high standard with Polyflor vinyl flooring throughout, high specification laminate doors and IPS sanitary panelling. A variety of coloured feature walls throughout combined with a predominant diamond white finish.

 

 

All ceilings were lay-in-grid to suit the various requirements for both acoustic and moisture, with a tailored lighting solution that provides a bright, warm feel to the department.

 

 

Main Considerations:

 

The main challenge in delivering the project was the location of the site. The project contained significant works around a live hospital environment, with the Outpatients Department located directly below. The site had to be sealed from the hospital street and safe access provided via a hoist/Haki staircase at the opposite end of the building.  The site team had to be closely managed, with all works carefully monitored and co-ordinated to ensure that the service users were not affected by the works.

 

 

What they said:

 

“The scheme was delivered both on time and within budget with thoroughly professional managers and site management. The MTX personnel were professional, knowledgeable and extremely competent; they dealt with a breadth of people on-site with courtesy at all times and were a delight to work with. The Trust is exceedingly pleased with the quality of the new unit and hopes to replicate it on further refurbishment projects.”

Lark Hill Primary School

Lark Hill Primary School

In April 2016 MTX were awarded the contract to install a new modular building to provide further classroom facilities for Lark Hill Primary school.

 

The Requirements:

 

Manchester City Council had requirements for a new educational building for Lark Hill Primary school in Salford. The scope was to provide bespoke modular buildings to accommodate the current capacity of primary students. The available space to house the new educational facilities was provided by MTX under Galliford Try for the North West.  

 

The project was to provide a modular educational establishment to house 8no classrooms, a break out area and wash room facilities. MTX provided a 2 storey modular building to deliver these requirements.  

 

The Solution:

 

It was decided that the new 28no bay modular building would be constructed on the existing playing fields which were situated on the left hand side of the main school building. Work commenced onsite in May 2016 and the building was delivered to site on the 25th July 2016 with the M&E fit out commencing immediately after this.

 

All fit out works were completed within 9 weeks, this included the external cedar cladding and render finish.

 

The building equipment included the following:

 

·         Stand-alone boiler plant

·         BMS control system

·         Controlled roof lights- these were installed to supply teacher control as well as fully smart control linked to Co2 sensor and rain sensors

·         Mechanical ventilation system- this was installed for compliance and class room ventilation

 

 

In addition to this MTX installed fan lights above classroom doors to further encourage natural light to increase the school’s aim to become more eco-friendly. Each classroom was fitted with electric blinds which were operated by single teacher control and each classroom achieved air permeability of less than 4.75m3.

 

Main Considerations:

 

Keeping this project within budget and on time was the key requirement for the client. As the onsite construction period took place in the summer 2016 holiday it was vital that the facility was ready for use by September 2016 and within the Education boards strict budget.

 

 

The modules arrived to site in July 2016 and the whole project was completed and handed over to the client within 10 weeks of them arriving at site. Furthermore the project was fully compliant with Building Bulletin regulations.

 

What they said:

 

The Salford School schemes were delivered by MTX Contracts LTD within challenging existing live school environments. The MTX team were involved in close liaison within these live schools to help minimise any disruption and produced a finished product of good overall quality to delighted end users.
