Catheter laboratories project at Liverpool Heart and Chest Hospital

Tilbury Douglas has successfully delivered a £10 million project to build and refurbish catheter laboratories at Liverpool Heart & Chest Hospital (LHCH).

LHCH provides specialist services in cardiothoracic surgery, cardiology, respiratory medicine, and diagnostic imaging serving a catchment area of 2.8 million people, spanning Merseyside, Cheshire, North Wales and the Isle of Man. Building, infrastructure, engineering and fit-out business, Tilbury Douglas, constructed the new building, and refurbished laboratories and consultation rooms. The work was delivered in three stages in a live environment over a three-year programme. The project was heavily serviced, with all works undertaken while keeping existing systems operational. This included removing a main low voltage (LV) switchboard, and diverting supplies while maintaining the services to the hospital.

The construction team continues to maintain a presence on site using its volunteering time and a £12,000 donation in kind to transform an underused courtyard into a respite garden to help alleviate stress among hospital staff, patients and visitors. Tilbury Douglas says this social value activity is contributing to the team’s social value return on investment of £6.9m

The project follows Tilbury Douglas’ recent success in delivering critical healthcare facilities for Liverpool University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust and Liverpool Women’s NHS Foundation Trust – including creating the UK’s largest neonatal unit of its kind and an upgraded Urgent Care and Trauma Centre at Aintree Hospital.

Phil Shaw, Divisional director at Tilbury Douglas, said: “The delivery of this complex project is a testament to Tilbury Douglas’s capabilities and expertise in delivering first-class healthcare facilities across the UK. The project was delivered in a live environment working in collaboration with the Trust and equipment provider, Philips. Through early engagement we identified and managed the specific requirements for temporary service provisions between each phase, which ensured the that works were planned accordingly with no impact on day-to-day operations for the Trust.”
