COVID-19

Proud to be supporting our #NHSheroes

We are proud to have been able to support the national response to Covid-19 through our work on several of the NHS Nightingale hospitals now up and running across the country.

Our Nightingale Hospital teams have worked alongside NHS staff and the Army along with many others to deliver surge centres in Manchester, Preston, Bangor and Jersey.

Our people are passionate about what they do and the projects they deliver and never was that more evident than in their extraordinary commitment and contribution to these life-saving facilities.

We’ve also seen our people giving up their time to act as full-time volunteers in support of our NHS, and working to deliver temporary welfare facilities for staff at hospitals including those at Kettering in Northamptonshire, and Alder Hey in Liverpool.
