MTX wins building contract at Colchester Hospital

 Former president of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, Dame Clare Marx, picked up the first spade-full of earth on 11 May as work began on the orthopaedic care centre

Modular healthcare building firm MTX has secured a project to construct the multimillion-pound Dame Clare Marx Building at Colchester Hospital.

The three-storey modular building will house the new orthopaedic centre for the East Suffolk and North Essex area. Once complete, the facility will include six theatres, space for up to 72 beds and all the necessary ancillary spaces, including a main reception and waiting area. The building is scheduled to open in 2024.

David Hartley, managing director at MTX, said: “As all the recent news has suggested, waiting times are a real pressure point for the NHS at the moment. This has only been exacerbated with the pandemic, and more than ever, it’s shone a light on the benefits of modular solutions – particularly the quicker speed of delivery. We’re excited to be working with the team on this new project and can’t wait to see it come to life and provide the end users with a real tangible benefit.”
