The site for the development was on a parking area and it was essential, to meet the Trust’s needs and Planning conditions, to retain the parking spaces.

In close co-operation with the NGH Team, Actiform designed the accommodation to incorporate parking spaces by elevating the wards and connecting to the Hospital at first floor level.

Lifts and stairs provide access from the car park level to the wards above and to the roof mounted plant room.

The facility comprises single and 5 bed wards with a full suite of support areas. Our scope included the design, manufacture and installation of all mechanical/electrical services, bed lifts, medical gasses, BMS, alarm systems, fitted furniture, finishes and access control. A complete design and build package.

The building complies with HTM/HBN design guidelines, current building regulations and L2A Energy efficiency requirements.

The service we received from Actiform in acquiring additional modular office space was exceptional. From the initial flexibility around design to meet our needs, through to achieving delivery and install on time was first class. Nothing was too much trouble and the communication throughout the process was excellent, whilst providing a value for money solution.

Having used Actiform to supply a large compound set up on a Smart Motorway project, the service received was second to none. From the initial enquiry to the final installation, all aspects of the project went to plan. The cabin design and layout was revised on numerous occasions and no request or alteration seemed to be too much trouble. All communication, planning and installation was very collaborative and all key dates and deadlines were actually completed ahead of programme.

Corin Feltham in particular offered his wealth of knowledge and experience throughout the process along with introducing some excellent ideas to save both time and money. All in all a good experience working with Actiform and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again on other schemes.

Back in the autumn of 2015 we had a requirement to procure offices and welfare facilities of 3,000m2 plus over 3 floors for our Tideway-East project in Bermondsey, London.

We went out to tender and Actiform provided a construction package that we eventually purchased. Right from the start – sales , tender, design, manufacture, installation and aftercare support, Actiform have been very professional, proactive and suggested cost saving solutions without compromising our facilities. Their site installation team had all the correct RAMS and certification to carry out our installation in a planned and well organised time scale.

From the beginning both parties, CVB JV and Actiform, have worked openly and honestly together and we have an excellent working relationship. I cannot praise Actiform enough and would certainly recommend them to any prospective client.
