Work has been completed on the first phase of a project to refurbish St Michael's Hospital in Warwick.

National fit-out and refurbishment specialist, Willmott Dixon Interiors has revamped Rosewood Terrace, an inpatient mental health rehabilitation unit, on behalf of Coventry and Warwickshire Partnership NHS Trust.  

The two-storey building has been refurbished on the ground floor to deliver modern facilities for patients.  

Internal doors and lighting have been replaced, sanitary-ware has been upgraded and new external windows have been installed. In addition, new vinyl flooring has been laid, all ventilation grilles and radiator covers have been replaced, and the building has been redecorated throughout.

The 13-week project was awarded through our Major Projects Framework and delivered by a team including Fulkers Bailey Russell as Quantity Surveyor and Design Buro as principal designer.  

St. Michael’s Hospital was opened by Queen Elizabeth II in 1996. A purpose-built facility, it provides age independent inpatient mental healthcare and comprises several inpatient wards and outpatient clinics. They include Hazelwood, Ferndale, Rowan, Larches and Willowvale which will all be refurbished by Willmott Dixon Interiors during the second phase of the project which commences this month (August 2022). All works are expected to be completed in the summer of 2023. 

Alongside its refurbishment of the hospital, staff from Willmott Dixon Interiors volunteered to deliver services to local charity Zoe’s Place, which provides palliative, respite and end of life care to babies and infants. The charity’s sensory room in Easter Way has been completely redecorated including new modern vinyl flooring.

Phil Crowther, regional director of Willmott Dixon Interiors, said:

“We’re really pleased to have delivered the first part of a much broader project to refurbish facilities at St. Michael’s Hospital. It will significantly upgrade each hospital ward to modern standards, providing a much improved environment for both patients and NHS staff.  What’s especially pleasing is the dedication our people have shown to leaving a lasting positive legacy in the area during the time we have on site. Zoe’s Place delivers incredible work for children and their families during unspeakably difficult times and we’re proud to have made a contribution to support the work of its fabulous team.” 

Andrew Peck, client relationship manager at Procurement Hub said:

“This is another fantastic project working with one of our NHS members, delivering through Procurement Hub Major Project Framework. Working with Willmott Dixon Interiors, the solution has provided a compliant and flexible route to market for the customer. We all look forward to the benefits this will bring to the Trust in the future.”
