Property and construction consultancy, Ingleton Wood, has received national recognition for the design and project management of a £2m Rapid Assessment and First Treatment (RAFT) area in the emergency department at Queen’s Hospital in East London. 

Ingleton Wood’s Billericay office provided architectural, mechanical, and electrical engineering and project management services for the scheme.

And the team was highly commended in the Healthcare Project of the Year category at the recent Partnership Awards, in collaboration with Sodexo and contractor, MJ Ferguson.

The RAFT expansion of the Emergency Department was part of a substantial investment to upgrade emergency facilities, managed by Barking, Havering and Redbridge University Hospitals NHS Trust (BHRUT).

Paul Cavalier, partner at Ingleton Wood, said: “The emergency department is one of the most-critical areas of the hospital and this expansion, which allows for eight additional bedded bays and a fit-to-sit area for six patients, enables the NHS trust to see many more patients in a safe environment.

“It also allows the ambulance crews to hand over patients in a quicker period.

 “It was a challenging project, which we undertook during the pandemic in a live environment and the achievement is testament to the incredible partnership between us, Sodexo, and MJ Ferguson.”

The Partnership Awards recognise excellence in the construction industry between public-private partnerships and focused this year on projects responding to challenges the pandemic brought.
