Contract furniture specialist Deanestor has completed a £1.1m contract for the supply and installation of furniture and fittings for over 1,600 rooms for the new Royal Papworth Hospital.

The contract is Deanestor’s 15th healthcare project for Skanska.

This latest scheme involved the manufacture of nearly 2,000 base and wall cabinets, shelving units and worktops for areas including operating theatres, cardiac catheterisation laboratories, pharmacy, isolation wards, ensuite bedrooms, utility rooms, staff changing facilities, library, and offices.

The fixed and loose furniture was manufactured and pre-assembled at Deanestor’s factory in Mansfield.

Deanestor was also responsible for fitting over 12,000 other items across the new hospital including controlled drug cabinets, mirrors, fridges, noticeboards and fire extinguishers.

It also manufactured kitchen units for 15 staff rest rooms and beverage bays and installed more than 1,600 integrated panel systems (IPS) pre-fitted with basins or toilets.

Francis Breen, Construction Director at Skanska, said, “Deanestor offered the most competitive solution for this project. We needed a combination of high quality, durable and functional furniture that would meet the highest standards of infection control.

“The Deanestor team engaged well with this complex construction scheme and had a positive attitude throughout.”

Colin Glen, Clinical Project Manager at Royal Papworth Hospital, said, “Our requirement was for good quality furniture that had longevity. Furniture that would be resistant to damage and that is well designed to avoid settling of dust and maintain infection control. Deanestor has provided great quality products which are exactly what the hospital needed.”
