Kingston Joinery has been delighted to play a key part in the award-winning development of a new £9.4m cancer treatment and support services unit.
The National Garden Scheme (NGS) Macmillan Unit was officially opened by the Duke of Gloucester at Chesterfield Royal Hospital, in Derbyshire, in November.
The purpose-built facility combines a variety of cancer treatment and support services under one roof, including haematology, oncology, acute oncology and chemotherapy, as well as palliative and supportive care.
Developed by Watford-based Vinci Construction, which has offices across the UK, it saw Kingston Joinery’s expertise called upon to deliver a six figure, 18-week contract to complete the internal joinery fit-out package.
Development recognised for excellence at major awards
The development won the prestigious RIBA East Midlands Building of the Year award at the recent 2018 ceremony.
Architects Manser were also recognised for their excellent work when named Project Architect of the Year 2018 in relation to the major health development.
Craig O’Leary, Managing Director of Kingston Joinery, says the firm’s work on the project goes down on an ever-increasing list of prestigious developments it has been involved in which have been recognised for their quality.
“It is always rewarding to be appointed to such prestigious jobs which provide fantastic facilities when they are completed for local communities, but it is particularly pleasing to see developments we are involved in handed major awards,” said Mr O’Leary.
“It is recognition that quality has been of the highest standard throughout, in each and every aspect of the work completed.
“On this contract our team were on site for close to four months installing doors, frames, skirting architrave and ironmongery in areas including clinical and examination rooms and doctors’ rooms.
“Our work is prominent throughout the development and our teams have once again excelled on a first class development.
“Judges of the awards commented at how the building has a welcoming environment for patients undergoing treatment, and given the nature of the facility we are talking about here, there can be no greater compliment.
“We were delighted to be given the opportunity to work on such an important development in the health sector and demonstrate our abilities once again.”
