Modus are excited to announce practical completion of the 24-bed Modular ITU Ward at the William Harvey Hospital in Ashford, Kent.

The 24-bed modular intensive care unit blends seamlessly into the existing hospital and ED, and will provide vital extra bed space and facilities for patients and staff at the hospital. Staff will be moving in over the coming weeks and work will begin shortly on the Stroke Unit underneath the ward.

Acting as Quantity Surveyor for the East Kent Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, Modus worked with the project team to ensure the highest quality of build, providing a safe and comfortable environment for all patients.

The project utilised pre-fabricated off-site modular construction to achieve a shorter contract period and mitigate some of the risk/issues with working at an active hospital.

Modular building allows for a significant portion of the construction phase to take place off-site and simultaneously to the groundworks being undertaken on-site. This results in a more efficient construction programme and greatly reducing the amount of deliveries/disturbance on-site. Contractor MTX provided the modular construction on the project.

Just one of the projects Modus is working alongside the trust on, we look forward to continuing our relationship with them and improving NHS services for the patients and staff of East Kent.
