Stoddart House, Aintree Hospital
Location: University Hospital, Aintree
Contractor: BAM Construction
Challenge: A breadth of products were required including surgical products suitable for a hospital environment.
Stoddart House at University Hospital Aintree (since renamed Longmoor House) opened following a significant refurbishment of an existing building in 2021. Offering an integrated service for people in North Mersey, the former mental health inpatient unit now offers 120 beds including a 70-bed ward, future-proofed to be an isolation facility in the case of another pandemic. The facility is a joint project between Mersey Care and Liverpool University Hospitals Foundation Trust (LUHFT).
Refurbished during the COVID-19 pandemic, Stoddart House had a very tight programme of works to ensure it was completed on time and available in case the pandemic worsened.
M&E contractor A&B Engineering, working with main contractor BAM Construction, sought a value engineering solution to ceramics throughout the facility that could deliver on specification, cost and delivery through a challenging build schedule. It turned to Twyford, experts in bathrooms, to provide an extensive range of bathroom solutions including surgical products.
