NG Bailey joins partners to develop Harrogate facility
NG Bailey is continuing to play its part supporting national efforts to combat the COVID-19 epidemic as part of the team that has transformed Harrogate Convention Centre into an NHS Nightingale hospital to serve Yorkshire and Humberside.
Housing 500 hospital beds, Harrogate Convention Centre is the first of the emergency ICU field hospitals created to help address the rising number of coronavirus cases outside a major city. ‘From a standing start’, NG Bailey prototyped and produced a suite of bespoke solutions – which included 500 prefabricated bedhead power units, 440 pipework modules units, and 70 prefabricated hot water modules.
With logistics driven from the company’s Bradford offsite manufacture base, items have been manufactured, delivered, and often installed, on the same day. The independent engineering and services business has worked closely with the NHS, the Ministry of Defence, and BAM Construction.
David Hurcomb, chief executive of NG Bailey, said: “We are proud to be playing our part to help deliver this vital NHS Nightingale Hospital in Harrogate, and support the response to coronavirus over such a short period of time. It’s a real collective team effort, with all parties working in partnership to project manage, mobilise supply chains, and associated materials and services, and deliver for the benefit of the nation.”
