Stepnell chosen for £1.2m refurbishment at Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital



Nuffield Health, the UK’s largest health charity, has appointed Stepnell to carry out a £1.2 million refurbishment programme at the Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital.

The phased programme of work at the hospital in Lansdowne Road, Bournemouth, will include the refurbishment of ground-floor consulting rooms, corridors and reception and ancillary spaces; first-floor corridors and bedrooms and second-floor offices, corridors and theatre recovery areas.

Stepnell will also carry out the enabling work and completion work for the installation by Siemens of a cardiac catheter laboratory, a state-of-the-art specialist facility for the diagnosis and treatment of heart conditions.

The Stepnell team – which is based locally in Blandford Road, Poole - has just started work on the refurbishment programme, designed by Kendall Kingscott, which is set for completion in October 2015. Stepnell has previously carried out a number of projects for Nuffield Health, including a £2.2 million large-scale refurbishment scheme for the Nuffield Health Wessex Hospital near Eastleigh, Hampshire, in 2013.

Stepnell contracts manager Karl Nottage says: “We are delighted to be working once again with Nuffield Health to deliver these modern, patient-friendly refurbished facilities which will incorporate the latest technology. Our team has an extensive track record in the healthcare sector and wide experience of delivering high-quality results working in occupied, live environments such as hospitals.”

David McNair, hospital director of Nuffield Health, comments: “We have no doubt that the team at Stepnell can make our vision for the hospital a reality by creating the most modern medical environment possible. The renovation works will cement Nuffield Health Bournemouth Hospital as the leading hospital in the area, and with the company’s vast healthcare experience Stepnell is helping us to achieve
