NHS staff to benefit from new amenities at London’s Wellington House


Our Major Projects Framework 2 (MPF2) can bring your ideas and plans to fruition.

We are pleased to have worked with The Department of Health and Social Care to make the WCs Disability Discrimination Act (DDA) Compliant and consistent throughout the floors making it easier for users of the building.

Our framework partner, Willmott Dixon Interiors has completed the refurbishment of Wellington House, Waterloo Road in Central London as the latest project delivered for our member, following the transformation of three floors of Quarry House, a landmark office building in Leeds.

The government owned office building contains modernised amenities for NHS staff and has had 1,500 sq ft upgraded. Existing toilet blocks have been stripped out and updated throughout the nine-storey building, to provide new male, female, and gender neutral disabled WCs, that are compliant with the Disability Discrimination Act (DDA).

Low level sinks and zip taps have been installed within newly refurbished tea points on the first, second and third floors, and adaptations have been made to the building’s existing mechanical and electrical system.

The phased refurbishment was carried out in a live office environment to reduce disruption to building users, including NHS operational and administrative teams. It was designed in-house by Willmott Dixon Interiors and completed in 24 weeks.

Jamie Elliott, Construction Manager at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We are pleased to have delivered another successful project on behalf of the customer. These new DDA-compliant amenities will greatly enhance the workplace experience for staff and visitors at Wellington House. The same high-quality design has been implemented throughout, bringing tea points and WCs up to a consistently good standard.

“A central London refurbishment typically delivers challenges in access restrictions and we are grateful for the flexibility of our on-site team and supply chain in changing shift patterns to suit the demands of the project. By coordinating activities with key stakeholders, they have ensured that the building remained safe and operational at all times.”

Clare Moore, Client Relationship Manager at Procurement Hub said: “It has been great to work on another refurbishment project with Willmott Dixon Interiors through our Major Projects Framework.

The team has done a great job to continuously demonstrate value for money and to ensure disruption to the occupants of the building was kept to an absolute minimum.”

The refurbishment of Wellington House was completed alongside a supply chain that included LDC Projects, CES M&E Services, Formwise Washrooms, Henny, Avenue Flooring, IBuild Interior Services and Tarem Services.
