I&G complete three major projects in one month

West-Yorkshire based I&G have recently completed some of their biggest and most complex projects to date across the health and education sectors, as they further cement their expertise in these fields.

The team have been working alongside customers new and old, having recently completed works for long-standing clients Rotherham Hospital and Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust, as well as new client, Trinity Academy Grammar.

Rotherham Hospital’s Keppel Ward has been transformed and extended in response to growing patient numbers, and now caters for the specialist needs of stroke patient care. The reconfigured space also means patients will be better able to manage their individual journeys to recovery with specialist equipment and fit-for-purpose facilities.

Ian Hinnit, Director of Estates and Facilities for Rotherham General Hospital said;

“The teams have worked so very hard to deliver the scheme with no accidents, on budget and ahead of time, that is a testament to the strong relationships forged between the Trust and I&G over many years working together. We very much see I&G as a partner and huge part of the team moving forward.”

Other works to the hospital within the last 18 months have included;

  • An extension to the A&E entrance to create a drop-off point, an internal one-way system, separate consultation rooms and a unique de-contamination unit
  • Ward B6 received a full refurbishment to create several additional high dependency beds, as well as dedicated areas for staff to don their PPE and enter critical care units’ safety
  • Discharge Lounge refurbishment creating a nicer space for patients to wait
  • The creation of individual cubicles for patent privacy and covid-secure measures have also been installed in Resus
  • Dedicated outdoor space created for staff
  • Upgraded outdoor areas throughout the hospital grounds

Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust’s Ophthalmology ward has also successfully concluded. Covering over 2000m2, previous office space has been completely transformed to create a one hundred room facility for the treatment of eye conditions. The bespoke, state-of-the-art equipment and facilities are fully future-proofed and will enable the Trust to bring its Ophthalmology Services under one roof, further enhancing patient care for many years to come.

Trinity Academy has had an extensive programme of refurbishment and reconfiguration works to create extra classrooms, new toilet facilities, larger catering facilities and dining areas, as well enabling the Academy to increase pupil intake by 80 places.

Celebrating 50 years in business combined with its fifth year as part of the Sewell Group, the West Yorkshire based construction company ends its momentous year on strong footing, having also grown its team exponentially after its most successful year of trading.

I&G Managing Director, Christopher Carline said;

“I&G works across Yorkshire and Lancashire with an extremely strong and valued customer base, who have always worked collaboratively with our teams, and have been a huge part of our growth journey.

“Our business strength comes from within and from our highly motivated, caring team of professionals who always go the extra mile in providing a friendly, approachable service. We’ve been lucky enough to welcome even more new faces to the team with the same mindset, as well as promoting internally in key roles.

“The fact we have completed three complex, highly demanding projects to a world class standard in extremely quick succession is testament to the team we’ve built, and I could not be prouder.

“Not only this, but our thirst to leave a positive social impact in all that we do is embedded in our culture, and we have gone to great lengths to have an extra special year this year. Alongside several other initiatives, the team have raised over £35k for The Kirkwood hospice in Huddersfield, a cause very close to our hearts.

“We end our year on a high and cannot wait to see what 2023 has in store!”
