Refurbishment of Worcester hospital unit up for awards

Worcester Editorial 13th Mar, 2024   0

THE REFURBISHMENT of Worcestershire Royal Hospital’s Elgar Unit has been shortlisted for two top awards.

The unit has been shortlisted in the Refurbishment/Revitalisation Project and Public Sector Project categories at the West Midlands Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards.

As part of the project an existing ward was redeveloped to better help those with mental health difficulties in Worcester and across the county.

Shared dormitory-style quarters were removed and a new £11million facility was built with private, ensuite rooms.

The RICS Awards showcase the most inspirational developments in land, real estate, construction and infrastructure.

Chair of the West Midlands RICS Awards judging panel, Bryony Siggs, said: “It is inspiring to see such inspirational projects in the West Midlands shortlisted for these awards. It is a true testament to the dedication of surveying professionals despite challenging times in recent years. I wish all of the projects the best of luck.”
