Work begins on A&E expansion and refurb at Brighton’s Royal Sussex

Willmott Dixon Interiors has begun work on the first phase of a project to expand and refurbish A&E facilities at the Royal Sussex County Hospital in Brighton.

The fit-out and refurbishment specialist contractor has commenced demolition works at the hospital’s Millennium Wing, on behalf of University Hospitals Sussex NHS Foundation Trust (UHSussex). It says the 18-week project will pave the way for the phased delivery of an acute floor expansion at Royal Sussex County Hospital, which will ‘provide modern healthcare facilities, and significantly increase capacity to support critical patients in A&E’.

Willmott Dixon Interiors will manage the removal of all existing internal walls, ceilings, and flooring within the building, and a full MEP strip out and replacement.  Awarded by Scape, this is the latest project delivered by the contractor at Royal Sussex County Hospital, following completion of works at Thomas Kemp Bridge, and a two-storey modular extension of the Urgent Treatment Centre. Graham Shaw, MD at Willmott Dixon Interiors, said: “We are proud to be supporting UHSussex in the radical improvement of emergency hospital treatment at Royal Sussex County Hospital. These works will lay the foundations for a multi-million pound overhaul which will deliver a raft of improvements, reducing waiting times, and providing a better experience for staff and patients.”

James, Millar, deputy director of Capital Development and Property at UHSussex, said: “The investment in A&E facilities at the Royal Sussex County Hospital will have a huge impact on the care we can provide. It will not only improve standards and deliver a better hospital environment, but has the potential to significantly reduce waiting times, helping the sickest patients get the emergency care they need as quickly as possible.”
