Whitehouse Medical Centre, Milton Keynes
New health centre for Milton Keynes
Willmott Dixon has completed over 100 healthcare construction projects in England and Wales during the last 10 years.
We offer patient and service user-led solutions, where we plan, design, construct and manage healthcare facilities for NHS trusts and private healthcare providers across the UK.
We have successfully delivered healthcare construction projects in acute and community facilities. This includes master plans and estate strategies, new and refurbished wards, and specialist units such as theatres, oncology, maternity, endoscopy and emergency departments.
Willmott Dixon works across the full range of mental healthcare facilities, from care facilities for older people through to secure care facilities, for both the NHS and private providers.
Our expertise includes strategic planning and estate reconfiguration, infrastructure upgrades, design and construction, and refurbishment of new facilities.
The majority of Willmott Dixon's healthcare experience involves refurbishment or upgrade work of acute, mental health and community care facilities, so we are used to working in live environments around healthcare professionals, service users and patients. We implement stringent processes for minimising disruption.
We take care to understand the operational requirements of all healthcare buildings we work in, through regular stakeholder liaison meetings before, during and after the construction programme.
We have established processes, procedures and management systems tailored towards a proactive ‘zero accidents’ approach and minimising disruption to operational services.
When Willmott Dixon's construction teams engage with a client at the start of a project, we establish 'soft landings' protocols and ensure all our staff and members of our supply chain achieve ‘buy in’ to these processes.
We establish a training plan in conjunction with the client and involve them during construction, with regular site tours. Where necessary, we provide training in the use of new equipment at least 10 weeks prior to project completion.
We are committed to delivering projects as sustainably as possible, and many of our healthcare construction schemes have been given high environmental ratings, including BREEAM 'Excellent' and 'Outstanding'.
We delivered the UK's first BREEAM ‘Outstanding’ healthcare facility at Houghton le Spring with NHS South of Tyne & Wear.
To meet Government construction targets of 33% lower costs and 50% faster delivery and the bid to design for manufacture and assembly, we have developed a pre-designed integrated health and care hub called Cura.
Cura offers clinical and service flexibility, can be customised to suit the needs of the local community and adapted to future changes.
