Using modular solutions to design complex healthcare estates

One of the largest teaching hospitals in the UK has benefited from state-of-the-art temporary theatres to maintain patient care while its existing theatres are being refurbished. Our team recently delivered a temporary modular operating theatres block at the Queen’s Medical Centre (QMC) in Nottingham which challenge the misconceptions that modular buildings are low quality.

This particular build was a high-quality design adopting modern methods of construction using a bespoke modular system. The result has been a new clinical space which has enhanced patient care and has also allowed the hospital estates team the flexibility to continue patient care while improving their existing portfolio, all compliant with contemporary healthcare standards.

Putting patients at the centre of healthcare design settings

QMC is a teaching hospital that facilitates more than 1,300 beds and employs more than 6,000 people. It is predominately known for its A&E unit and is a primary destination for the Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire Air Ambulance for seriously injured patients.
